On June 15th, 60 blockchain enthusiasts ranging from entirely new to experienced veterans made their way to the Shark Mansion. The sun setting and the warm Malta breeze provided beautiful scenery for the Shark Mansion’s inaugural event, Bitcoin Club’s Oh I See ICO Q&A. An air of excitement filled the venue with conversations buzzing on the island’s hottest topic.
SharkCIA Cofounder James Coleman-Powell gave the opening remarks, welcoming all attendees to the Oh I See ICO event and giving a brief overview of SharkCIA and Shark Mansion. SharkCIA is a cryptocurrency intelligence agency specializing in the research, investing, and marketing of blockchain-based companies.
The main event of the evening was the ICO Q&A Panel, comprised of four members of the Malta blockchain community:
Jan Sammut, ICO Launch Malta
Chris Vassallo, Blockchain Malta Asc.
James Catania, Teros ICO Platform
Anna Melton, Decentralized Ventures
During the Q&A session, many members of the audience asked specific questions about launching ICOs for the projects they were working on – there is clear evidence of the grassroots blockchain movement taking place in Malta. The back-and-forth Q&A style of the audience and the panel provided a real sense of community and camaraderie in this fledgling blockchain space.
Following the ICO Q&A, there was an advisory session regarding the legality of ICOs launching in Malta. An air of optimism filled the space with reassuring words from the panel regarding Malta’s stance on blockchain technology. The Maltese government is taking every measure to attract a variety of blockchain projects to the island, making ICOs simple to startup and giving existing blockchain projects attractive incentives to move their business to over.
After the event concluded, Shark Mansion was pleased to host the after-party for all participants of the Q&A session, panelists and audience alike. Free beer and spirits were served to all, encouraging everyone to have a great time and spur excited discussion.
The Oh I See ICO event was a monumental launch pad for SharkCIA and Shark Mansion. Shark Mansion is looking to become a premier venue for exclusive events and after-parties for all blockchain technology enthusiasts in Malta and the region.
