Coinfest Asia Returns For 2023 With A Web2.5 Theme
The immersive festival will be held in Bali on 24-25 August 2023 to the delight of crypto enthusiasts, developers, and creators.
Coinfest Asia, the immersive Web3 festival, will return on 24-25 August 2023 in Bali. The previous event hosted over 2,000 participants from 50+ countries, with attendees coming from institutional, retail, and regulatory backgrounds.
For this year’s event, Coinfest Asia will be held under a new theme known as Converge. As the name suggests, Converge will bring together Web2 and Web3 industries into the transitional Web2.5 implementation.
The internet has existed for over 50 years, with most experts agreeing that its development happened in two distinct cycles. Web1 was the basic internet that most users are familiar with, and existed primarily to share information. Web2, on the other hand, allowed users to create more interactive web pages. The next internet iteration, Web3, takes things to another level with blockchain, crypto, decentralized technologies, NFTs, AI, and the Metaverse.
To many people, however, Web3 is still quite an abstract concept. Coinfest Asia hopes to bridge the gap by focusing on the halfway house of Web 2.5.
“This year, Coinfest Asia will be back with insights and various interactive and interesting activities about the Web 2.5 industry, which is a period of industry transition from Web2 to Web3. This event is also our platform to contribute so that the industry on Web3 continues to grow, especially in Asia,” says Felita Setiawan, Director of ICN and organizer of Coinfest Asia.

Coinfest Asia will showcase Web2.5 case studies and real-life solutions, while companies can show off their products and network with one another. Outside corporate-based activities, the event will also see crypto enthusiasts, developers, creators, and fund managers coming together to explore the latest technologies.
Through Coinfest Asia, attendees will be invited to experience the shift from Web2 to Web3 themselves, and with tickets available today at special prices, there’s never been a better time to experience what the future holds for your favorite technologies!
