This was the first event to accept SIX as a form of payment, resulting in over 85,000 Thai Baht raised for Last of Ours project.
Guests from over 40 countries adopted the cryptocurrency by downloading SIX wallet and spending SIX tokens on food and drinks offered at the party.
“We’re extremely excited to host this event, and with the support of SIX, to show our attendees how far blockchain technology has come. We were eager to show them how easy to use the wallet was, and how fast transactions can happen. Rather than just listen to talks, it is wonderful to have them experience it in a real-life setting” — Arch Wongchindawest, Former Curator of Global Shaper Bangkok.
