On Thursday, April the 19th I attended an event hosted by the Australia China Business Council, entitled ‘Bridging the Cryptocurrency Knowledge Gap’ at the International Chamber House on Exhibition Street.
The event was lead by James Nguyen, Founder and Managing Partner of Anti Hero Capital. James was a fantastic host and delivered clarity to the audience around the basics of cryptocurrency. The panel included; Matthew Snowden, CEO of Anti Hero Capital, Christine Satchell, Head of Research and Innovation at Blue Chip Vision and Jenny Wang, Director of Berrigan Double Lawyers.
The panel’s speeches displayed a clear passion for cryptocurrency and the possible innovations in the near future that could create incredible changes in the process of business, both in Australia and the global market.
Aside from innovation, a primary discussion point focused on the ramifications of the reactive nature of law. As the law cannot keep up with technological innovations, the future may hold problematic affairs for criminal activities and ignorant users.
The event was great for personal interests and to enhance my knowledge on the complicated topic. However, it was unfortunately an unproductive event for networking opportunities, as it was structured as a seminar.
It was evident from the attitude among the audience that they were present only for the panel, as they were hesitant to network. Most attendees either worked with IT, or it was a strong hobby.
All in all, I would only attend this event again to increase my knowledge on the subject, however, I would not attend it for lead generation purposes.
