Event delegates will gain insights on the developments of the diplomatic relations in the Korean Peninsula; how the blockchain technology is disrupting the existing monetary system; and ways to improve the quality of life beyond wealth and technology. Some of the 200 prominent speakers at this edition include former UN secretary general Ban Ki-Moon, founder of Crypto Exchange Miko Matsumura, Nobel Peace Prize winner Kawasaki Akira, and the president of the Republic of Estonia Kersti Kaljulaid.
