Details

The speakers highlighted the fact that the world is moving towards Web3.0 and the inevitability that is decentralization. And it is necessary for us, as a nation, to make sure that we are not left behind. They clarified the misconception that most of the people have about blockchain being limited to crypto currencies and trading. Instead, they painted a whole new picture that showed just how big and important a milestone blockchain actually is when it comes to innovation, and a paradigm shift of technology.

70+ blockchain enthusiasts attended the meetup having a variety of educational and technical backgrounds. The attendees included students, teachers as well as professionals already working in this field. Our speakers kept the sessions extremely interactive by answering any questions that the audience had. Not only this, our team encouraged all the attendees to network and socialize with our team and their fellow attendees after the sessions were over, which proved to be a great learning opportunity.
