After Sibos, woke up on This Wednesday 18th early but buzzing, it is the day everything starts. I have been watching a few documentary about financial institution and the conception of bitcoin and it fascinate me that I will be part of something so big, which is made by the people for the people. So it started, in the morning I conducted a few interviews for Fintech Finance before joining the other racers at iGTB's booth at Sibos.
We took lots of pictures and then bam ! It was started, everyone took different directions, our first challenge was to get video of people wishing us luck, we got our first challenge just after than, mine was to go to Columbus in Ohio, go to the Jack Nicklaus Museum and take a selfie with a souvenir and a Ohio hat. What a challenge.
First I was offered help by Jennifer, who offered to drive me to Rochester and then get a flight, then Sergey offered to buy me a flight. In the end, I ended up catching a bus, with help of Abbas, a member of the Bitcoin Bay community that operates in Toronto.
I am very luck to have a currency in which the community is so involved and supportive.
I am off the the big adventure. Join me on my journey to become the first woman in the world to cross America only using directly Bitcoin.
