The Crypto Fest has become a popular annual event. This year, it forms part of the Week of Innovation in Cape Town, a collaboration with the SA Innovation Summit, the largest start-up event in Africa, which is taking place in Cape Town from Sept. 27 to 29, 2022.
On Sept. 30, more than 2,000 attendees will be joining this event either virtually or in-person in Cape Town, South Africa. Top global speakers will be sharing their insights on trending cryptocurrency, nonfungible tokens (NFTs), the Metaverse, Web3 and Decentralized Finance (DeFi) topics.
The Crypto Fest 2022 theme “(Don’t) Look Up” is a play on the satire-comedy movie title “Don’t Look Up.” Change is coming to the crypto-DeFi-NFT-Web3 space and now is the time to “look up” and notice the changes as well as the opportunities.
The Crypto Fest will ignite hard-hitting conversations, spark critical debates and host a one-of-a-kind experience on how the crypto-DeFi-NFT-Web3 technologies and communities are altering the worlds of finance, investing, art, music, sport, gaming, entertainment, marketing, governance and more.
Expect a packed day of exciting keynote presentations, a marketplace with a hive of activity at the various booths, NFT art and Metaverse gaming experiences, competitions and giveaways, and top local artist and DJ performances at the afterparty. Well-known South African radio personality Kienno Kammies will lead the proceedings as the Master of Ceremonies. All this action will be taking place in Cape Town, ranked as one of the most beautiful cities in the world.
A variety of tickets are available, from in-person general and VIP tickets to livestreaming tickets for those who prefer to attend virtually.
