Exploring Tokenisation and Leading the New Economy! "Web3 New Economy and Tokenisation" Whitepaper Released at Hong Kong Web3 Festival 2023

Co-hosted by Wanxiang Blockchain Labs and HashKey Group, and organised by W3ME, the Hong Kong Web3 Festival 2023 has successfully held from April 12 to 15. 

HONG KONG, April 15, 2023—On the afternoon of April 15th, Dr. Xiao Feng, Chairman of Wanxiang Blockchain and HashKey Group, officially released the "Web3 New Economy and Tokenization" whitepaper at the "Tokenizing the Future" forum at the 2023 Hong Kong Web3 Festival main stage.


Web3, represented by blockchain technology, emphasizes trustworthy data, data sovereignty, and value interconnection. The "Web3 New Economy and Tokenization" whitepaper not only explores the underlying logic and evolutionary trends of Web3, but also provides a new perspective on Token, outlining a blueprint for the Web3 industry that "all value can be tokenized" and efficiently, intelligently, and flexibly combined, transformed, circulated, and distributed within the Web3 value network.


As Dr. Xiao Feng mentioned in his keynote speech on the topic of "Three Generations of Token Models for Web3 Applications," the Web3 new economy will create new currency, capital, and commodity markets that require different types of Tokens to serve as value markers for economic activities. Therefore, the application protocol is the three-generation Token model, which includes NFTs, utility Tokens, and security Tokens. NFTs derive their value from Play NFT to Earn and Play NFT to Owns, connecting Web2 and Web3, the physical and virtual worlds, offline and online, and goods and scenarios. The value of utility Tokens comes from the network's "permission," using Tokens to pay gas fees or commissions, while companies use part of their profits to repurchase them. Security Tokens are the tokenization of equity and can be traded on virtual asset exchanges for STOs, bringing users and investors together.

The whitepaper provides a comprehensive explanation of the "trinity" relationship between monetary policy, mechanism design, and financial engineering in Token economics. The goal of monetary policy is to adjust the supply and demand of Tokens, making the effective supply and circulation speed of Tokens adapt to the development needs of the Web3 new economy. The goal of mechanism design is to incentivize compatibility, coordinating the consistent actions of multiple participants under asymmetric information and inconsistent goals through the dynamic game mechanisms and algorithms of decentralized decision-making. The goal of financial engineering is to transform risk and returns, designing financial products and markets suitable for the Web3 new economy. The overall goal of Token economics is to stimulate stakeholders to actively participate in Web3 new economic activities through the reasonable design of Token supply mechanisms, application scenarios, and related financial products and markets, promoting the growth of Token value.


Over the next 15 years, Web3 applications built on blockchain infrastructure will become a new development focus and have a revolutionary impact on human economic and financial activities, social interactions, and privacy protection in the digital world. The Web3 new economy will surpass the Internet economy in economic institutions, economic organizations, financial systems, value creation laws, value distribution rules, stakeholders, business models, decentralized decision-making mechanisms, and value capture.
