All good things come to an end, and all great things just have a beginning. Wire Summit was the beginning of something exciting, ambitious and adventurous for the BTC Wires family. Bringing together industry stalwarts, blockchain enthusiasts, venture capitalists, tech entrepreneurs under one roof and simulating a one day conference successfully is no easy task. But we are proud to announce, that the event proved to be a massive success as per the feedback of our attendees.
We had insightful sessions lined up throughout the day. We kicked off with the keynote speech by our beloved CEO, Jatin Madhra. Following that, the co founder of Dunya Labs, Cathy Guo took the stage and talked about the importance of blockchain technology.
"Cryptocurrency and #blockchain have an edge" by Cathy Guo co-founder of @DunyaLabs.
