First Dash Conference In London
What happened to the first ever Dash conference in London?
On September 24, 2017, Dash marks a first ever conference in London. This gives an opportunity for cryptocurrency users to discover more about Dash. This opens opportunity to people that despite being a digital currency, people can really see the people behind this crypto and that it really is true and not a scam. We all know that Dash is the fast rising cryptocurrency today.
So what happened during the conference? Check out this recap below.
This week I was able to take a well deserved vacation with my wife and attend the Dash Conference in London. On Sunday I went to the conference and she went shopping at Harrods – we were both happy but I got the better deal. I had a number of questions before and during the event that I think many others share.
Why was the conference in London?
According to Ryan Taylor, they wanted to have this first conference handled by a top notch organizer with experience in the field – Moe Levin and Keynote Events and to tie the Dash Conference to another conference (the World Blockchain Forum WBF) to allow cross pollination with other blockchain enthusiasts.
This worked on both counts. The conference was very well organized and the pricing made it easy for WBF attendees to add the additional day for Dash. I spoke with a number of people that attended the Dash conference just to learn more about it that came to London for the WBF.
Were there really over 500 people interested enough in Dash to come to London and pay to go to a conference?
Yes – it was amazing that there were people literally from all over the world there. I talked with people from more countries than I can remember including Bulgaria, Ukraine, Mexico, Hong Kong, Lithuania, Australia, Kenya, Russia, Singapore and plenty from the UK and US. It was pretty much a full room for the whole day.
But Amanda and Evan were not there!
The Dash community has grown and matured more than enough that it is not about any one person. I personally would have loved to meet both Amanda and Evan. But there were several big name YouTubers and Ryan as CEO of the Dash Core team is very capable of representing Dash.
What is the community like in person?
As a writer for DFN I have interacted with a number of Dash folks but I still consider myself pretty new to Dash -March of this year. Everyone I met was very friendly. The pre-conference happy hour at a real English Pub was well attended and a good time. Thanks to “Walter” who organized it – unlike his slack avatar – he is a very friendly person that went out of his way to get people together.
