As part of our Blockchain Week we hosted an investee showcase, to celebrate some of the fantastic companies we have in our portfolio. It was great to see so many current (and future!) investors join us. The evening involved pitch sessions from Magnr, RSK Labs, Factom, Rivetz and SatoshiPay, and we took some time to interview them as well.
In the panel discussion Coinsilium marketing manager Jan Skoyles and Coinsilium investors ask our portfolio companies what makes them stand out and what their applications are doing to solve real-life problems. Watch the full panel discussion here. https://youtu.be/vImNdQNwQfk
