Dawn Dunn, Fintech Cluster Manager at Dynamo, said: “We’re delighted to support the Blockchain and Cryptocurrency Meet-up and look forward to hearing from some brilliant and enthusiastic tech professionals as they showcase projects they’re working on.

“It’s a great opportunity to share information and ideas, and to learn more about an area of growing importance in the region’s tech economy.”
