One of the most powerful ways of communicating your business ideas is with Face-Time (not the phone app - actually talking to people), which is why we went to do some networking at the Digital Currencies Educational Trade Fair in London on 23rd October 2017.
We bumped into a number of cool blockchain players like Nick Gregory, CEO of CommerceBlock, and I got clued-up crypto-investor types to see my demonstration of the beta version of the HiP app.

From the LongFinance website, this trade fair was described thus:
"The stunning Great Hall of the Chartered Insurance Institute was transformed into an intimate trade fair like no other. Twenty six “token” companies brought their banners, tablets, and other material, respectful of the smaller than usual space allocated to each one. In the spirit of cooperation, vital in this field, they shared tables, as well as their excitement about the road ahead.
The trade fair was officially kicked off by Jeremy Mayhew, the Finance Committee Chairman of the City of London Corporation. Welcomed by Michael Mathias, CEO of DasCoin and Michael Mainelli, Executive Chairman of Z/Yen Group followed. Around 500 people passed through the Great Hall’s doors between 13:00 and 18:00, making it a very successful day indeed.
In the smaller Court Room, Michael Mainelli and Vinay Gupta, founder of Mattereum and Hexayurt. Capital, chaired a series of 12 punchy, educational 10-minute talks. The room was full, with people standing at the sides, throughout the day. We would like to note, here, that every talk ran on time, if not ahead of schedule, a small achievement in itself.
The day also saw the launch of "The London Token Fundraising Manifesto", published in the early morning edition of City AM.
Just before 18:00 and in front of a packed room, Michael Mainelli and Michael Mathias brought the fair to a close, calling for more cooperation, more self-regulation, and more educational events."
