IOSG 8th Old Friends Reunion | Exciting Update on Scaling Summit & Metaverse Carnival

Thanksgiving Day has just passed, we hope you are all well! Thanks to your support, our preparation for the event has made great headway! Although there are ups and downs, we’ve gone so far. Thus, we are happy to announce more about the event.

🏠The Venue

Due to the reemergence of some pandemic cases in Shanghai, we decided to change the venue from Shanghai to Shenzhen. It’s a hard decision to make because we all know that Shanghai is home to some OGs and enthusiasts in the domestic crypto world. However, based in Shenzhen, we believe that there are more potentials to tap into with Internet giants and talented geeks on the fertile land of intelligence!
