At this point, I really want to mention our SPINN LABS team who really worked hard to organize this event at this scale, specifically Maaz Ullah Arshad, Sehrish Fatima, Ayesha Mushtaq and most importantly Hashim Barraq who truly take care of everything. I personally want to thanks Hashim for excepting my inputs and suggestions for the meetup, especially for social media handlers I really appreciate his support, as now finally we are able to show our great work to the whole world…

For me, this meetup truly captures my attention towards Blockchain, and now after this, finally I decide to take a part in Blockchain Hackathon to get some solid skills of this revolutionary platform… : – )
