As the last stop of our Asia Tour, our time in Mumbai was mostly spent at the conference India Blockchain Week, which was co-hosted by Ish Goel, CEO of Somish. On the first day of the conference, Max sat on a panel alongside Goel, Mike Costache of Krowdmentor, Anirudh Rastogi of TRA Law and Saju Abraham of RightMesh called “ICOs — What’s the heat all about?”.
On the second day, Lisk was featured as one of the key presentations, where we gave a status update and an overview of future plans. After the presentation, we were overwhelmed with questions, suggestions and photo requests. We were approached by several people interested in working for Lisk in India. We met many people in the Blockchain community in India, such as Akshay Aggarwal, Manav and Kumar Anirudha of Blockchained India, who will help us out get Lisk off the ground there. We also met people from more traditional financial services companies, including Prasanna Lohar of DCB Bank and Stefano Colombu of Yes Bank Limited.
TKI Dinalog program manager Martijn Siebrand also gave an interesting presentation at the conference. He is implementing Blockchain solutions for bigger firms. He was interested in discussing the potential to utilize Lisk as an application platform.
