The Web3 Renaissance Night Gala, DeAI Hackathon, and Lan Kwai Fong Party came to a successful conclusion, marking the successful conclusion of the 1783DAO Hong Kong event

As a Web3 community, 1783DAO has joined the project of Wanxiang Blockchain, led by Chairman Xiao Feng, a Web3 entrepreneurial accelerator and investment platform called ThreeDAO S3 on the Island of Everything.

From April 6th to 9th, 2024, the Hong Kong Web3 Festival, organized by Wanxiang Blockchain and Hashkey, was successfully held, with an estimated attendance exceeding 50,000.

As one of the largest Web3 events globally, the Hong Kong Web3 Festival featured keynote speakers such as Vitalik Buterin, the founder of Ethereum, Cathie Wood, CEO of ARK Invest, and Dr. Xiao Feng, Chairman of Wanxiang Blockchain and HashKey Group.

On the evening of April 7th, the Web3 Renaissance Night Gala, hosted by 1783DAO, took place at Exchange Square in Central, Hong Kong. The event received over 1,000 online registrations, excluding social media channels and targeted invitations. However, due to on-site capacity and venue constraints, more than 300 individuals were unable to be accommodated.

The co-organizers of this gala event include Conflux, Edge Matrix Computing (EMC), Web3link, and VoiceStreet. The chief strategic partners consist of Mazcaron55 (M55), Hyperdust, Omni Link, and TrendX. Additionally, the strategic partners include Aspire, Tube Protocol, Keynes Pay, 3EX, and HK Ascend Immigration, among others.

During the event, Wu Ming, co-founder and CTO of Conflux, stated that Conflux will focus on two aspects.

Firstly, Conflux aims to develop the DeFi ecosystem, particularly focusing on Ethereum-compatible projects. They plan to collaborate with Hong Kong dollar stablecoins and are currently awaiting regulatory approval and issuance from Hong Kong regulatory authorities. Once approved, they will introduce these assets to the DeFi platform.

Secondly, Conflux intends to explore the Bitcoin Layer 2 ecosystem. Their initial goal is to provide a highly secure infrastructure for Bitcoin Layer 2 and establish a decentralized cross-chain bridge through protocol deployment. Conflux hopes that the cross-chain bridge will not only support Bitcoin Layer 2 but also serve as a carrier for Bitcoin Layer 3.

Later, Alex Goh, the founder and chairman of the Edge Matrix Computing (EMC) Foundation, which oversees the AI and DePIN projects, stated that the narrative of this bull market primarily revolves around three key areas: Artificial Intelligence (AI), DePIN, and RWA.

Alex Goh further explained that in the realm of Artificial Intelligence (AI), the Nvidia A100 is a more valuable resource than gold, with limited annual production. By 2024, the production capacity has already been fully purchased by Silicon Valley tech giants such as Meta and Microsoft. As for DePIN, the focus lies in enabling broad participation in providing computing power within the network and delivering various types of services, with the crucial aspect being user adoption. Regarding RWA, its essence is inherently linked to Web3, with the aim of fully integrating relevant assets onto the blockchain.

VoiceStreet, the music metaverse gaming ecosystem project, shared a presentation on the topic of “How to Perfectly Integrate Music, Gaming, and Fan Communities.”

As of now, VoiceStreet’s music metaverse game, Ark of Panda, has garnered over 10,000 testing users and has partnered with more than 20 ecosystems. The game is scheduled to commence its public testing phase on April 17th.

VoiceStreet has also launched an NFT trading platform where users can trade assets from music metaverse games and assets like NFTs of songs by musicians.

Furthermore, VoiceStreet has collaborated with prominent entities such as Billboard in the United States, Oricon in Japan, Hito in Taiwan, and MelOn in South Korea to establish a Web3 music brand. They have gained over 110,000 followers and 3.6 million likes on Binance Live.

Landon Wang, co-founder of the Hyperdust Foundation, delivered a presentation titled “The Path to AGI through Web3.”

Wang highlighted the evolution of cryptographic assets, starting from scalar assets to the current popular trends of AI and RWA. This evolution reflects the trend of computation in the process of Web3. However, it is evident that on-chain computing power is insufficient. In the era of AI, the on-chain computing power, such as Bitcoin’s Proof-of-Work (PoW) and the Ethereum Virtual Machine (EVM), falls significantly short of the demand. Therefore, a new Web3 computing model is required to execute AI computing tasks.

Wang emphasized the crucial role of simulation environments in AI training and intelligent development. Hence, this new Web3 computing model needs to support 3D computing capabilities and corresponding simulation training spaces. After years of research and development, Hyperdust has implemented a trust mechanism based on a binary protocol and achieved on-chain decentralized 3D computing and AI microservices. Users can utilize and develop LLM-driven agents without authorization. Currently, Hyperdust has operated LLM ranging from 13B to 178B for dApp developers and end-users. Users have also developed dozens of 3D Gym Spaces supporting OpenAI’s reinforcement learning environment library, Gym, using Hyperdust. These spaces will soon be open for training LLM-driven on-chain agents.

Wang believes that from the perspective of cryptographic assets, AI assets are high-dimensional, unlike scalar assets such as Bitcoin. The EVM-compatible Bitcoin Layer 2 has implemented a settlement layer, enabling the support of high-dimensional cryptographic assets like AI. Currently, Hyperdust is organizing a hackathon on BEVM (Bitcoin-Ethereum Virtual Machine) to build an AGI aligned with the Bitcoin economy and vision, allowing AI to be open once again.

Cuttle Jiang from Aspire, a fintech company based in Singapore, introduced that in its six years of operation, Aspire has successfully raised funds three times, accumulating over $300 million in total funding. Investors include Sequoia Capital, Tencent, PayPal, and others.

Currently, Aspire has over 400 employees and collaborates with more than 15,000 global customers. At the end of 2023, Aspire officially announced that it had started generating profits.

Aspire provides support to various enterprise customers, including those in the Web3, Crypto, and Singaporean trading platform sectors.
