Hi @wudirruby do you know if anyone else will be around to present / represent the Aragon community at the event? I saw recently that @DanielS was in Shanghai, maybe there will be an opportunity to collaborate together if he or anyone he connected with will be in town for DAOFest at the time?

Thanks @light for the connect! @wudirruby I am no longer in Shanghai but I’d be happy to connect you to some local Daoists by private message. Good luck with the event!

Thanks @light for connect! I don’t know anyone from Aragon in China, glad if you would kindly introduce some.

Hi @DanielS , nice to connect! Would you be available on Dec 8 to join the event? We got quite interesting topics and contents this time and would be nice to have Aragon to join the event !

Sounds like a nice event!

Would be cool if the event could be shared live via Periscope or Twitch. And project sponsors could notify their communities in advance and ask questions during the live session!

Let me know if I can help!

P.S. You should also consider requesting for funding from Chinese VCs.

Thanks for your reply, happy to have you join our collaboration. BTW, what is Periscope or Twitch?

They are live video streaming platforms.

I’ve watched a few meetups via Periscope and Twitch and really enjoyed the sessions. It’s almost like actually being there in person, though not quite. ; )
