Loved your presentation! Rare to see people with real passion in blockchain tech itself and its potential vs doing ICOs for the sake of doing ICOs. Will take up on your book recommendations!

What a fantastic event. Thank you Cindy for so much knowledge and information packed in a relatively short time. It flew. Did not drag. Had there not been another event starting, I could have continued listening and scribbling notes.”
