While Token2049 may be over, Asia Crypto Week is not and companies are busy hosting events to meet everyone important in the crypto space.
There is apparently no better time to do this, since many important people within the Web3 world are in Singapore to attend events.
For ARC — an NFT community co-founded by Elroy Cheo, Kiat Lim and JJ Lin — they hosted a private party yesterday (September 29) at Lantern, the rooftop bar of Fullerton Bay Hotel, which boasts an infinity pool that has a panoramic view of the city skyline.
The event is meant as a get-together for everyone involved or interested in ARC, and plenty of local and foreign personalities and celebrities were in attendance.
The star-studded guest list includes Taiwanese actor Chen Bolin, American rapper Snoop Dogg’s son Cordell Broadus, Japanese rapper Verbal Ambush, Kevin Nishimura from hip-hop group Far East Movement.
Local crypto influencer Irene Zhao, socialite and entrepreneur Arissa Cheo, host-cum-actress Jaime Teo and entrepreneur Tjin Lee, among others also graced the event.
What is ARC?
ARC was founded in January this year, before JJ Lin joined as a co-founder in July.
Beyond the music scene, JJ has also dabbled in the business world, with multiple ventures ranging from fashion and coffee, to e-sports and art.
Now, he is turning his attention to projects that bridge both the Web2 and Web3 universe, making him one of the first Asian celebrities to be involved in a Web3 project like ARC at a personal level.
ARC is Asia’s first app-based tokenised community, connecting Web2 leaders, influencers and creatives with Web3 builders and thought leaders in a community that plays, grows and collaborates together.
ARC’s diverse community spans various geographies and industries. This includes Irene Kim, Korean-American fashion entrepreneur and founder of fashion label IRENEISGOOD; Jiawen Ngeow, COO of Mintable; Deeps de Silva, founder of Samadhi Ventures; Darius Sit, co-founder of QCP Capital; and Joseph Kahn, multi-Grammy award-winning American director.
Backed by an NFT membership, ARC provides members the opportunity to network across social and professional communities, co-create their membership utility with ARC’s global partners, and collaborate with members to launch new ventures.
Earlier in May, ARC announced that it has established partnerships with global hospitality giant Millennium Hotels and Resorts, and lifestyle destination group Zouk Group, that supports ARC’s co-creation ambitions.
