Supported by Google for Entrepreneurs, the XPOS was on display for the first time at a Startup Grind meetup event: “Blockchain and Cryptocurrencies: myths, truths, and the future”.

Held on May 3 in Sao Paulo, the event panel featured industry experts Gustavo Cunha and Emilia Campos and an audience of 40 attendees including a mix of blockchain enthusiasts and finance industry entrepreneurs, professionals and investors.

Gustavo Cunha spoke to the ‘big truth’ of blockchain technology: that it is here to disrupt the way things operate and we are going to see many applications in the upcoming years.

Our blockchain researcher, Joao, introduced Pundi X’s solution to the crowd and demonstrated the ease with which cryptocurrency transactions can be conducted on the XPOS device.

The demonstration generated a lot of excitement in the crowd and several questions about when the technology would be available for deployment, which were leading into conversations with participants.
