Arkilio attended a great meetup hosted by Sunny Ray from Unocoin. Kudos to Sunny and Fintech Canada for putting together such an impressive roster of speakers and a well-organized meeting. We estimated close to 800 people have attended the meeting and an overflow room had to be used to accommodate everyone safely.
"Charlie Shrem's robotic incarnation" was admittedly the most entertaining part of the meeting. Imagine iPad mounted on a telescopic pole with a microphone, speakers and a camera all of it on two wheels and remotely controlled. See the pictures, you will love them.
Speakers that have left the most impression on Arkilio were Matthew Roszak, Charlie Shrem, Andrew Filipowski and Bill Barhydt.
