Decentralized Financial System LATOKEN — the #1 exchange in liquidity for new tokens— is kicking off 2019 with the 4th edition of the Blockchain Economic Forum: The Decentralized Financial System.

More than 100 high-profile economists, regulators, officials, and business leaders from all around the world will join us for three days to set the ground rules for the design, governance and monetary policy of a more inclusive and transparent financial system.
