What Awaits You at FORKED: Unveiling Web3 Gaming and SocialFi. A Dual Narrative Driving User Growth for Web3 

The future of gaming is about more than just entertainment; it’s about creating value, experiencing true ownership, and becoming part of a community. Digital interactions are now intertwined with financial opportunities, driven by blockchain technology, making money while entertaining and pushing for the major adoption of new gamified economic models.

We’re on the edge of a new era where social interaction and play blend seamlessly with financial elements. Witnessing its growth and adaptation is one of the most enchanting parts of engaging with Web3 every day.

It’s not the next big thing. It’s already here. It’s a new era, and FORKED wants to step in with the community. 

Attendees will gain insights from KOLs on emerging trends, engage in thrilling gaming competitions, experience latest Web3 games and developments in SocialFi, and immerse in a dynamic atmosphere. With a carefully curated guest list of 1,000 Web3 founders, gamers, executives, investors, influencers, and media, anticipate unmatched networking and matchmaking opportunities.

Building on the momentum after a successful debut of “Founder’s Stories” featuring Coingecko, Rug Radio, Decrypt, and ARC Community at FORKED on May 8th in Hong Kong, FORKED in Seoul will continue to deliver this insightful format, where Founders share challenges and setbacks of building in Web3.

Forked Igniting Web3 Gaming & SocialFi Horizon with Powerhouse Collaborations 

This time FORKED is raising the bar by partnering with even more industry giants and influential players, continuing its path to creating a valuable platform for Web3 founders at the critical stage of their growth.

“We are really excited about co-hosting this event with FORKED and their experienced team. By co-hosting this conference, it showcases our commitment to driving consumer adoption of Web3. We believe that the ‘Axie Moment’ of SocialFi will happen this cycle likely in Asia, and it will be key to boosting blockchain-based games for long-term adoption,” said Allen Ng, the Co-founder & CEO at EVG.

FORKED continues its journey with its powerful strategic partners — ARC Community, AngelHack, Coinhako, Highstreet, FACTBLOCK, and Playground — to leverage their vast resources and create a more dynamic and productive environment for all involved parties..
