On @Linkedin by our Founder Arifa Khan.   We hosted Skrill , SafeCharge and Mangopay for March 30th. Here's a gist article of our march 30th event - rave reviews! See more at   Read a press article about our previous event on June 24th fearuring The Currency Cloud, TransferGo, Derivitec & tibdits with over 100 attendees. Watch the video. Here's a profile of participants:   Han Verstraete , CEO  Otonomos is engineering the world's first blockchain-chartered company, in which you hold your shares in the same way as owning bitcoins in a digital wallet. When you form a BCC through Otonomos, you can transfer equity peer-to-peer to attract co-founders, remunerate collaborators, invite new private investors or get funding from the crowd at large. No matter how dispersed your share ownership, their blockchain-native technology automatically updates your cap table and helps you govern your company using self-enforceable, smart contracts. OTONOMOS was founded by "Wall Street disillusionists" led by ex-Goldman Sachs banker turned entrepreneur Han Verstraete and is engineering "V2.0 of the private limited company" that has its shares written on the blockchain. Where does the blockchain come in? "We define ourselves as a "native" blockchain play in the what we are doing could not be done without the blockchain. You can make shares digital for ease of trading - and for listed companies this is already the case - however without putting the blockchain at work you would not be able to make the shares "smart", i.e. code them as software. Doing so allows for a large degree of automation of a company's governance, hence our name Otonomos: pushing out a new version of a shareholder agreement, changing the majority required for Board resolutions, doing a capital increase, etc: all these governance actions become like a release of a new software version for your company, like upgrading from iOS7 to iOS8." Han Verstraete   Hugh Halford-Thompson, Head of UK Operations, Blockchain Tech Hugh coFounded which allows people in the UK to buy Bitcoins quickly and easily. He has been running sales and marketing. Starting with only £1000 the brother duo Hugh and Guy have scaled the business and turned over £1.4mil in the first full year.
