If you were unable to attend the show, don’t worry — the Investing News Network (INN) was there on the floor attending panel discussions and interviewing companies at the event.

Here’s a brief overview of what happened on day one of the two-day conference.

The day started with James Black of the Canadian Stock Exchange, who introduced the show to the audience and showcased how technology has changed since the early 1980s.

The first panel of the day, called Blockchain will Transform Money, Finance, Business and the World, was with Alex Tapscott, co-founder of BLKCH Research Institute.

Following the talk from Tapscott, the second discussion of the day revolved around securities on the blockchain before the event shifted to a third talk titled the Perfect Use of Blockchain with Dan Reitzik, CEO of DMG Blockchain (CSE:DMGI).

While much of day one’s focus was on blockchain, it was not the only area of interest. A presentation from Ryan Irvine, founder of KeyStone Financial, centered on five themes and stocks that investors should keep an eye on.

INN also had the opportunity to speak with Aaron Dunn, CFA of Keystone Financial. Stay tuned for our interview with Dunn in the coming days.
