Cocktails & Candles Afterparty Recap

Mar 16, 2019 | Events

A Night to Remember.

Today marks the conclusion of 2019’s Asia Crypto Week. The event, organized by Token2049, saw an impressive slice of the blockchain community come together to celebrate, share ideas, and make new connections.

We saw this event as an opportunity to do our part in bringing the community together, and thus came to be the first ever BitForex Cocktails & Candles Afterparty. We wanted to share with you all our goals and visions for 2019.

“BitForex is now one of the Top 10 Global crypto exchanges in the world, in 2019 we have a lot of plans. We’ll be having derivatives available for users, including perpetual contracts, futures, and options. We’re also becoming more globalized than ever before, working together with our partners all around the world.”

– Garrett Jin, BitForex Founder & CEO

The party, which saw over 500 attendees from more than 200 institutions, took place at a lovely bar in Hong Kong called The Woods, and was a joint effort between BitForex and our partners at Yellow – a unique cryptocurrency firm aimed at building out the future of blockchain with seed investments, mentorship and advice on token economics, cryptospace marketing, listing, fundraising – and more! You can learn more about Yellow on their official website.
