Yong is the CEO of Big Mochi, which uses blockchain to enable migrant workers to take care of their families from anywhere. The company is also a digital platform for hiring, community development, customer service and a hub for creating legal partnerships.

Following the two presentations, industry leaders will meet for a podium on “Blockchain for Social Good”. Panelists will thoughtfully comment on how blockchain technology can pave the way for societal progress. Brian Christensen from Blockcities and Brian Nelson from Creators of Last Resort will share their experiences, projects and future projections for ways that blockchain can bring to life.

The final presentation will be given by Scott Trowbridge & Matt Shams, the founders of Blockswap, the PoS liquidity layer that automates and simplifies defi-returns. With Blockswap, users can essentially create a corporate bond out of DeFi assets that provides users with a steady APY with interest accrued on a permanent basis.

The event concludes with an optional virtual network session that all attendees can connect to. BitAngels city events are usually aimed at entrepreneurs in the city region.
