In reception, we received a lot of inquiries from curious investors and community members, gave out copies of our FarmBit paper, made valuable business relationships and had significant interaction with several industry experts and project pioneers which las led to a series of profound partnerships which we would be announcing soon.
Overall, the conference was thrilling and we are super elated about the feedback we are getting about FarmBit. This has strengthened our resolve and motivated us to continue to build and refine FarmBit.
