The most accessible blockchain application platform was in France on April 12th to 14th for the Paris Blockchain Week Summit. Joining a long list of heavyweight blockchain projects, several key Lisk figures were present at the event to showcase its latest developments in Lisk’s thriving ecosystem.

 

With over 3,000 attendees and more than 250 confirmed speakers, PBWS was a resounding success, and Lisk certainly benefited from that.

 

The project’s Community Lead, Miguel, took part in a panel discussion at the Junior stage of the event, and was later interviewed by David Lin, for Kitco News.

 

Additionally, the Marketing team at Lisk took up residence in a booth, very close to the entrance of the Palais Brongniart, making it easy to get noticed, and ultimately resulting in two days of mingling, interviews, and brand awareness.
