AUSTIN, TEXAS, Jun 08, 2022– Atlas, a global leader in Web 3.0 infrastructure and its sister company Fundamental Labs, a blockchain-focused venture capital firm, convened yesterday for a kickoff event ahead of the main Consensus Conference to discuss opportunities and challenges in the development and growth of Web 3.0. Headlining the event was former US presidential and NYC mayoral candidate and Web 3.0 advocate, Andrew Yang.
The event built on the vision of a future supported by and integrated with Web 3.0 infrastructure, a philosophy core to Atlas’s brand. The forum, titled “Building Web 3.0,” featured speakers from applications, protocols, and infrastructure companies who discussed the opportunities and challenges in their “layers," ‘Web 2.0 vs Web 3.0’ dynamics. Another core topic was Web 3.0’s environmental, social, and corporate governance (ESG) impact in the coming years. Speakers highlighted how the Web 3.0 revolution can encourage green energy adoption, foster improved financial, healthcare, and educational outcomes for global populations, and offer better tools for governing communities and societies.
The event received over 500 participants ahead of Consensus Conference later this week, including industry experts from Web 3.0 firms, traditional financial institutions and regulatory bodies.
