Tokyo offers vibrant FinTech, blockchain and crypto communities with a large number of different events being hosted almost daily. As it is sometimes hard to keep track of all that is going on, here is our attempt at listing major conferences and those meetups that we found worthwhile, trying to cover the major cryptocurrencies at the same time. If we have missed something, please let us know, and we will happily consider any corrections and additions. We aim to keep this page current and link it under the “Events” tab in our Tokyo FinTech Publication.
