Alan Lai, a Blockchain Engineer at UC Berkeley and a XinFin Representative introduced XinFin and explained the importance of an enterprise-ready hybrid blockchain for global trade and finance to the audience. Hundreds of developers and blockchain enthusiasts showed their interest in XinFin technology and were keen to explore its use cases, dApps, and open source APIs.

Some of the developers got hands-on experience in XinFin technology and set up masternodes and created smart contracts using MyContract.

While some had queries, few came up with meaningful ideas and suggestions to enhance and/or build upon XinFin technology. Alan even received multiple proposals for collaboration and knowledge sharing at the event.
