30 people interested in cryptocurrency went to the IGZ Bamberg on the 9th of October to attend the Dash Roadshow. Mario Mages, the IGZ Prokurist and Centre Manager & Network Activities Manager at Lagarde1, and his team hosted our presentation on the topic of Blockchain and Dash. We talked about money and monetary policy, about Bitcoin and Blockchain, about Dash – Digital Cash and about law and taxes.
Jan Heinrich Meyer, from the Dash Embassy D-A-CH, presented a comprehensive insight into the world of cryptocurrencies and answered questions. Klaus Himmer, founder and managing director of the tax management tool Cryptotax, joined in via video chat to explain the dangers and challenges of taxing cryptocurrencies.
Mario Mages, center manager at the IGZ & head of network activities at Lagarde1, talked to us about his impression from the event:
“The Dash Roadshow has exceeded my expectations. I have been working with cryptocurrencies myself for several years now and therefore I really enjoyed the well-founded lectures, which allowed me to learn many new aspects. Although the hype behind cryptocurrencies is over, the underlying technology – the blockchain – is gradually becoming established, with payment systems being just one of many application.
The well structured and interactive presentations were well coordinated. The participants received not only information about the cryptocurrency Dash, but also a general overview of the new world of blockchain technology. The lectures gave impulses for numerous exciting discussions. An entrepreneur who was a former tenant of our business incubator and is currently working in the blockchain business himself established the contact to the Dash Embassy D-A-CH. Altogether it was a very informative and entertaining event, which we would like to repeat.“
