DandYlion: interview with the founder Mario Alberto Casiraghi

On the 6th of September we will host the first Italian DandYlion meet up. DandYlion is a community bringing together thinkers, innovators, and agents of change from Tech and Financial worlds. In this interview the founder Mario Alberto Casiraghi explains how DandYlioners garnered significant traction on the London crypto scene and partially reveals what he will tell us during the event at the 6th of September.

How was DandYlion created?

Thanks to my experience in financial services, I have been able to observe in detail the functioning of the economic and market system at the base of the world economy. During my five years in investment banking, I realised that the current system was not keeping up with the technological and social development seen in other sectors and I looked for a solution. From that moment on I started to study blockchain technology, of which I soon understood the potential. When I shared my thoughts with friends and colleagues I realized that they arose interest and stimulated discussion. From simple conversations we moved on to private round tables and then to meet up in London.


What is your mission?

Our vision is clear. Educate – Collaborate – Disrupt.

  • Educate: it is one of the main problems both in the financial world and in the blockchain world. DandYlion aims to become an educational channel by closing the gap between the two worlds.
  • Collaborate: We are a community dedicated to innovation focused on the aggregation of talents and on the creation of an environment suitable for sharing and comparison
  • Disrupt: our main goal is to create a group of people who share DandYlion’s vision and turn it into a community committed to changing the situation in some economic areas.

What will you talk about during the meeting organized with the Fintech District on the 6th of September?

We will cover most of the relevant topics in the recent past and present: Overview Blockchain and Cryptocurrencies, The Challenge of Scalability, The ICO Market: Emerging Practices and Regulation. We will also bring some experiences from the field with professionals who have already completed token sales during their careers.

To whom is the meeting addressed?

The event is aimed at crypto and blockchain enthusiasts, but also at those interested in the innovation sector more in general. It will be an excellent opportunity to learn about one of the great trends of the present and the future.

What do you think of an initiative like Fintech District?

I am very happy to collaborate with Fintech District and satisfied in seeing this kind of initiatives in Italy. In our country innovation is not always the centre of attention as it should
