Smartlands: a Week in Meetings, Partnerships, Achievements

The Smartlands business development team had spent the first week of February in London, building bridges, creating new partnerships and finding out ways to improve on our business model.

The schedule was tight, to say the least. Wall to wall meetings, countless presentations and meetups had shown us that the vibrancy, with which the security token space develops today promises all participants substantial returns on their investments (be those monetary or otherwise) in the nearest future.

We sat down with some of the most exciting players in the token exchange space, namely, Graham Rodford, CEO & Co-Founder of Archax and Simon Barnby, Archax CMO.

The cross-sell opportunities using a shared database abound there, and the members of the Smartlands community will undoubtedly enjoy the array of possibilities Wirex offers for various types of transactions with crypto and fiat.

So, let’s leave it running in the background and instead talk about something as sparkling as custody of digital assets.
