The World Economic Forum (WEF) will convene its 54th annual meeting in the Swiss city of Davos starting Jan. 15. The five-day-long gathering will see participation from over 100 governments from around the world, major international organizations, 1000 partner companies, as well as civil society leaders, social entrepreneurs and the media.

The theme of the 2024 WEF conference will be “Rebuilding Trust” amid the escalating geopolitical tensions, evolving economic policies, and rapid technological advancements. The event will focus on six critical themes: Economic resilience, energy transformation, globalization, productive artificial intelligence, strengthening institutions, and women’s health.

Cointelegraph will be on the ground like every year to bring you some of the latest updates and happenings from the global event. While WEF focuses on social and global issues, blockchain and crypto-based solutions have started to mark their presence in global events over the past few years.

This year, however, the focus has shifted toward the role of artificial intelligence (AI) and tokenization of real-world assets. Some of the most notable sessions around these topics include a public conference on tokenizing the economy titled “The Tokenization Economy,” scheduled for Jan. 17.

The focus of the discussion will be on the central tenets of tokenization, how it can be leveraged, and where the technology is headed. The likes of USDC issuer Circle CEO Jeremy and Allaire Denelle Dixon, CEO of Stellar Development Foundation, will join the meeting.

Another discussion scheduled for Jan 18 titled “Clear-Eyed about Crypto” is focused on the future of digital assets and crypto and the role of regulators simultaneously in promoting innovation while protecting the consumer,
