Tykn at the World Blockchain Forum in Dubai!
On April 14–19, several members of the Tykn team ventured down to Dubai with the aim of laying the foundation for a future potential established presence in the UAE by meeting with government representatives, as well as generating leads for our future funding rounds. For this, of course, there is no better place than Keynote’s World Blockchain Forum!
Attending the event were Co-Founder & COO, Khalid Maliki; Business Development Lead, Jimmy J.P. Snoek, and Compliance Officer (Lebanon), Randa Rifai; accompanied by Blockchain Architect Weiwu Zhang, on invitation by the organiser of the forum, Dr. Moe Levin, Strategic Advisor to Tykn.
On the first day, Khalid presented Tykn’s distributed identity attestation authority system, ANA, to large-scale investors, entrepreneurs & government officials alike, and the attention and interest it garnered was truly overwhelming! The event allowed us to make many wonderful and exciting connections, with many of whom we will be discussing our contribution to the identity & humanitarian aid space within the UAE and other parts of the globe on the short term!
In the meantime, the team is working hard on the writing of both a white and two yellow (technical) papers (to be released in July) explaining the magic of ANA, and to have her test-ready for our upcoming pilot in St. Martin together with the 510 Data Team, for The Netherlands Red Cross.
