“Arwen Smit was a dynamic and engaging speaker and we felt honoured to have her on stage for our CUBE Tech Fair 2018 in Berlin. Her fireside on the Blockchain applications beyond FinTech resonated with our audience of large corporates executives, startup founders and overall tech business peers. We are looking forward to hearing her again on stage next year to continue to have her perspective on blockchain innovations.”
