The Breakdown: How We Event Now With Joon Ian Wong of CoinDesk

There is a shared sense that the world has shifted. Now begins the messy work of figuring out what it means for the future we’re headed into. This live episode of The Breakdown podcast with NLW features Joon Ian Wong of CoinDesk talking about the future of the events space. He sees money as a social concept and conferences, real world or digital, are drivers of change. “Contagious ideas are the things that cause economic activity, right? It’s not just some kind of rational calculation of this or bet. And so putting all of those things in context, money is a deeply social activity and conferences are one manifestation of this attempt for everyone to agree on what this money thing is,” said Wong.
