Apologies for the slight delay in posting a wash up of how the event went, I’ve been waiting for a link to the presentations but it hasn’t yet been distributed so I thought I should provide an interim post with some pictures taken by the event organisers.
The event alternates between Glasgow and Edinburgh, this one was held in the Glasgow City College which is an awesome space:
All in all, it was a great evening with a really good turnout (~55 people).
Here’s a couple of the guys from MBN Solutions who sponsored the event:
And here’s the majority of the crowd listening to the presentations by Ronin Sandford (Etherplay) and Nick Lambert (Maidsafe):
In the 3 hours that the event ran for, I was able to get around a good number of people to talk about ZenCash in a fair bit of detail. Most either hadn’t heard of it, or had only heard the name so it was good to be able to start from scratch with an explanation of what Zen is all about. There were a couple of people who were brand new to crypto, so explaining how absolutely everything works was good fun.
A few pics of the beer and pizza networking after the presentations, I’m the guy with the blue checked shirt and enormous beak:
A surprising number of the people I spoke to had Apple phones which made distributing Zen a little more difficult than I originally expected. Whats wrong with Android?! That being said, I let everyone know that the iOS wallet is close and gave a few people my contact details so that once they had setup a Swing wallet, I could ping them some Zen to get them going.
In total, there are now 10 new Zen addresses out in the wild which I guess isn’t bad for 3 hours work. There are still a couple of people that are yet to come back to me with addresses so the number may rise but I’m reasonably happy with 10 for now.
I’ll post a link to the presentations when it becomes available.
Attend the next event in Edinburgh to continue reppin’ Zen.
Secure a presentation slot at the next available event (likely January however awaiting confirmation)
