In the second part of the event, Gökçe Phillips, co-founder of Projesium and İbrahim Kiçeci, head of Marketing in Projesium, gave a presentation about Token Economics.

Gökçe Phillips defined how Tokenisation works, how why Tokenisation and Crypto currencies allow decentralisation of value creation. Her example on Garbage Collection compared the current state in Turkey, Switzerland and how it could be formulated with tokens. She also stated that it is important to realise that crypto assets are much more than trading instruments, and that we will soon start using different coins in different parts of our lives.
