The london cryptocurrency show in london : How did it go ?

in #steemit3 years ago (edited)

This weekend has been a pretty crazy one, thanks to promo-steem I was able to come to london and give a talk with @fredrikaa about steempress.

SteemPress is a wordpress plugin co founded by @fredrikaa and I to allow you to automatically publish your articles on the STEEM blockchain whenever you publish them on your blog :

We usually post on the @steempress-io account so make sure to follow it to get all the updates :)

Anyways we were there for the whole weekend and I am currently chilling in the hotel room waiting for my plane back.

So how did it go ?


I left paris on friday, as I wanted to make sure that I would be there fresh in the morning for the show. The departure was a chaotic one, right now there are some train strikes in France, and I had to go back home from work to get my luggage, which caused me to go late, I ran basically all the way from my home to the airport. I literally arrived a the airport when the guy said "Embarkment is now closed" but I managed to slip through :D

The whole time I was in pain because my shoe was litterally digging into my feet. I'm sparing you the pictures but it's not pretty.

After a few iterations of "where the fuck am I going ?" and "Ah there's a train" in london, I got to the hotel where the show is happening. I wanted to stay there since the show is litterally downstairs.

I arrived first and then met with @fredrikaa who arrive after a few hours. I had already eaten but I went with him to eat somewhere. I was suprised that a mcflurry was only 0.89£ (it's more like 2.5 euros in france) so I expected it to be super small, and ordered 2.


It was not

But I love ice cream so ¯_(ツ)_/¯

Anyways, after that we went back and actually saw a few steemians, namely @anarcotech, @starkerz @redrica @ashtv and others in the lounge grabbing a beers. We had a few beers with them and then all went to sleep.



Saturday was the big day ! We had a debriefing at 8:30 so we woke up at 7 to get some breakfast outside


After a quick debrief we put our suits on, and started to prepare for the steempress talk. As talkers we got access to the "speaker lounge" Which was a really neat place where you could get a few treats and drink tea/cofee while preparing. IMG_20180414_094842.jpg

Although we did most of our preparation in our hotel room.

Then came the time to do the talk. We got filmed by quite a few people but it's not available yet, Thankfully utopian did a live so you can see our talk here :

but you'll soon get a video with better sound though but the live gives you a great overview of the event.

We also later did a q&a with the viewers


It was really cool to get to meet so many steemians, the event had quite a lot of people interested in crypto and the promo steem stand was full the whole time, it looks like we really were the most attractive blockchain here.

We also saw a lot of interesting talks from a lot of actors in the crypto scene.


(this is not photoshopped, the guy actually showed a sandal to talk about crypto trading)

I got to hang with a lot of steemians, do a few interviews. And talk extensively about steem and what the future holds for it.

Overall it was a very very interesting event. Here are a few photos from it.


Afterwards we got together with a few steemians and got pretty drunk in the hotel lounge. and we all signed a board with messages


Can you find my message ?

As you can see a lot of people were present :
@buttpacker @ezzy @fredrikaa @cryptocurator @adetorrent @gillianpearce @yensesa @mrs.steemit @nanzo-scoop @justyy @dannyshine and @lloyddavis @dunsky @elear etc etc etc. There were so many people that I can't list them all :D

Anyways, we got pretty drunk, I got together with people from the show namely and It was incredibely interesting to see that everyone has its own take on how blockchain can/should revolutionize the world and what's their plan for it.


I woke up with a hangover. We had decided the day before that we would be getting a proper english breakfast with @anarcotech, @starkerz and @fredrikaa

And we did !


And then we got back to the hotel where I'm writing this post now. :)


In conclusion it was a GREAT event, I've had so much fun and it's been so productive, and it's all thanks to promo-steem, so if you haven't checked them out, please do. I believe these guys are really pushing steem upwards and we should all be supporting such an initiative.

Steem on !


It was an awesome event indeed and a great experience to do our first business trip together :)

We also did 2 filmed interviews after our presentation which we will be posting soon for all of you want to see more!

Awesome to meet u @howo! U are a true value and trail blazer on this block chain! Nice to c a French man munching on an English breakfast :)) u and @fredrikaa did a great job at the show and are a credit to the steem block chain!

Thanks a lot for inviting us ! It was great meeting you. You have a great mindset and I believe steem will definitely benefit from your ideas. Promo-steem is brilliant :)

Just looking at how many steemians did the trip to london gives you a great idea of how much your efforts have paid off

Yes! I hope so! really was a great day and was an absolute pleasure meeting you guys! looking forward to discussing with you going forwards!

Shame I didn't get to chat to you! I think SteemPress is a truly great project and I will make sure to spread the word about it. Well done, guys!

P.S. Those McFlurry's and English breakfast look ace!

I feel the same ! So many steemians to talk to and only a single day. But I'm sure we'll get the chance to talk at one point. Either at in a london/paris meetup or in steemfest3.

Thanks for the kind words :D

P.S : They were.

Keep up the great work! Upvoted!!

Thanks for this blog of yours @howo. Im really pump up meeting all my churchmates and students sharing and advancing steemit to these people tomorrow. Truly an encouragement to have open this one. Shalom

Sharing is caring ! I believe that everyone has an interesting story to tell, getting all these people to steem to participate in the ecosystem would be great !

Indeed @howo. Tomorrow I'll be meeting 15 young people and young professionals who sailed their interest in joining the platform and the good thing about it is they very in anticipation of it. Even my friend Qatar would want to have a video call during this meet up. Shalom @howo for igniting me.

Omg you are so cute! pinches them cute cheeks

tools built on steem blockchain always excites me

Omg, can’t handle how adorable you are! :3

McDonalds doesn't serve ice cream. You were eating a chemical hash, laced with processed sugar. Don't do it to yourself. No reason to throw that kinda crap into your system. You will become what you eat.

So i'll become fake ice cream?

you will become a giant puddle of chemical hash, say goodbye to your health

Absolutely great update on the event! I have to say, your post has made me rather hungry!

Me too actually, an unintended side effect :p

@Howo - it was great to meet you. You have built something which will bring more value to the blockchain. A new gateway to bring in content writers and bloggers. It showed great commitment to travel to the show and we are so glad you did....well done to the pair of wishes with the project @cryptocurator

Thanks ! It was great meeting you as well :)

I am hoping to be able to attend an event in the near future as networking is an essential factor to grow this space to its potential.

I'm sure you will be able to every few months there are meetups organized here and there.

Glad to hear the trip was great -- I enjoyed those food photos!
I'll come back to this post to watch the recorded live talk later.

Tell me what you thought of them :)

oh man, mcflurries, choco whipped cream .. my my !!
and it was real cool seeing you live on Nico's "utopian" feed :)

Oh that's really cool ! Glad you saw it

Thanks for providing value within the Steemit community. Events like this can only help grow the community and take it to another level.

I'll admit I spent a lot of time looking at the pictures of the food, especially the breakfasts!

I'm glad you had a good time.

Hi @howo ! Great you had the chance to be there. Thanks for sharing a summary about it, and for showing a pre-video of presentations.

Regards, @gold84

Steemit Faucet keeps pouring dollars, with just a click of people easily collecting dollar coffers, unfortunately not many people know this social media, unlike face book, which has been very popular, but unfortunately on the face book does not provide financial benefits, only profit sekerar tighten social relationships.
"STEEMIT COMES TWO PROFITS EVEN MORE BENEFITS", I am not mistaken, because I have been promoting in social media face book, and other medsos, but only a few are interested, because he said it is rather difficult to list, and the key ferivikasi is also long never come, be happy for those who have signed up and joined in social media Steemit, take advantage of the best possible, work with freedom of thought, but also do not forget the code of ethics in the delivery of ideas, ideas or thoughts, do not post that offend other people, and do not be a plagiarist, put the full address when we post, share from the magazine, I never make a mistake, because post from one of the magazines less complete alamt email.
Someone can make mistakes, but make it as a lesson. Good luck to succeed is always in Steemit.

If I was there in London than I would have attended that function and it could have been great for me and my skills but I am from Pakistan and I can just think of going there!

Ahhh now I understand the concept, I didn't fully understand it at the show because we missed half of the presentation. Will be posting some photos soon, took hundreds of them, so hard to choose the best ones haha.

Its a good future for crypto

importante aporte para el crecimiento y desarrollo de esta plataforma, @fredrikaa @howo, el hecho de automatizar las publicaciones en Blockchain se siente interesante, seguire a @steepress-io para mantenerme actualizado, exitos, saludos
