SoMee Highlights at Hoshocon 2018

Thanks again for stopping by our SoMee Medium page, we appreciate all of you who take the time to read our content!

SoMee is now a top writer in ‘Social Media’ here on Medium. This is exciting news, considering we are a new up and coming social media platform.

You may have read our previous article about our new partnership with Las Vegas based leading blockchain security company, Hosho. If not, let’s get you up to speed on all the greatness that happened recently.

Last week was Hosho’s first premier blockchain security conference held at the Hard Rock Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas. For three full days, SoMee had the opportunity to meet new companies on the rise, experience educational sessions, and attend top of the line after parties.

In this article, we will share with you the highlights from each day!

DAY 1 Highlights

The event was kickstarted with a packed house for the Crypto Lifestyle & Life of a Crypto Entrepreneur panel. Influencers in the crypto space (Twitter handles) @KennethBosak @CryptoWendyO @Juni0rLancaster @sabotagebeats @crypt0goddess @MysticalOaks @cryptocardiff @CryptoEuclid gave us insight into their worlds. I highly encourage you follow them on Twitter if you’re interested in learning more about them.

The Hoshocon Opening Party at Vanity Nightclub was a great way to begin the evening festivities after our day one panels finished. Live music entertainment delivered by the talented DJ @Justin_Caruso.

The party did continue after Vanity Nightclub to the after after party at the famous MTV Real World Suite on the penthouse floor, but we will keep that a mystery for you all. Let’s just say that it was even better than we expected!

Now that we’ve given you a little teaser of Day 1 events, let’s see what Day 2 and 3 brought us!

We browsed the exhibit hall, had the pleasure of meeting sponsors, vendors and influencers working on really cool blockchain projects. We were even interviewed by Hypercube, video coming soon!
