Over the past weekend the NetLeaders community came together in Tokyo, Japan for our most important event ever – the Tokyo Global Summit.

An incredible line-up of speakers presented a jaw-dropping amount of news across the two-day event. On Saturday, a host of global Blockchain experts presented a packed CryptoMission seminar followed by announcements from NetLeaders, WebWallet and DasCoin whilst Sunday heralded a more intimate VIP training experience brought to 400 of the world’s top leaders from the NetLeaders community. Here are the five biggest stories from the Tokyo Global Summit:

  1. The Launch of DasExchange

Introduced by the Director of WebWallet, George Sarcevich, and officially launched with a hologram of DasCoin CEO Michael Mathias (yes this really happened!), the DasExchange was fired up on Saturday September 30, with an opening trade of €0.33 for the first DasCoin ever exchanged. When you log into your WebWallet account you’ll now see a brand new website where you’re able access the DasExchange right away – as long as you’ve completed KYC and have access to the Validator hardware device. Make your first trade today!  Also, be sure to check out the amazing LadyDas – she’s a new icon for the DasEcosystem who starred in the hologram sequence!

  1. Announcement of DasPay ICO

Shortly after the DasExchange went live, Executive Chairman of DasFinancial, Terry O’Hearn took to the stage to announce something no one was expecting. Starting in 2018, the DasEcosystem will be opening its doors to host a small number of highly vetted ICOs, bringing huge liquidity into the ecosystem. The first of these ICOs is likely to be DasPay – a perfect way to prove the ecosystem has what it takes to support ICO-based businesses.

  1. NetLeaders Career Plan

Global Ambassadors Paul McCarthy and Mateusz Guzda hosted a day of in-depth training for VIP leaders on Sunday October 1. The highlight of the day for many attendees was the introduction of NetLeaders’ monumental new career plan. Built on historic sales, the plan includes nine levels of achievement and recognition with some unbelievable rewards including a Caribbean holiday, an apartment and a Bentley Continental GT. If you want to make it to the top, you’ll have to build your business strong as awards focus on achievements in both the power leg and weak leg.

  1. Important Announcements of New Board Directors and Employees

  1. New Payment Options

Additional credit card options will also be added, bringing the total to 12 payment partners that have been approved (including Western Union), making it easier than ever to purchase a NetLeaders license.
