By @SimonCocking interview with Samuel Leach, multi business owner, entrepreneur, and influencer with a passion for the FX, Stock markets and cryptocurrency world. Founder of YieldCoin. Speaking at BIISUMMIT Blockchain Innovation & Investment Summit Dubai
1 min pitch for what you are doing now?
Yield Coin is currently in its first month of ICO, we have hit soft cap in our first 24 hours and growth is moving great, as of right now what are we doing we are adding partnerships to Yield Coin to implement cryptocurrencies into their businesses. Since our soft cap has been hit we have started progressing the projects and working on the finer details within the project plans. Can also show you our wallet GUI if you like that is in dev currently.
How was the last year, what worked well, what didn’t move as quickly as you would have liked?
We run multiple businesses both Samuel and Co Trading which is a Prop Fund in London, so we have been expanding that, and also with Yield Coin project managing all of our new businesses that we are launching under Yield Coin and how to drive the liquidity back into the coin, to increase the long term value. We have also had in-depth conversations with making sure we are fully FCA compliant with all of our operations within Yield Coin and are currently onboarding all the correct KYC/AML & Due diligence tech that is needed to be fully compliant, making sure we are ready for the future regulations to come in the UK.
What are your plans for the future?
Our plans for the future as a coin is to connect businesses to a new client, the cryptocurrency clients which is a new market for the world and to be able to bridge that gap in both knowledge and understanding, but also in actually accepting the crypto transactions into everyday life both business and pleasure and to mitigate the volatility risk to both customers and businesses.

What will you be talking about at this event?
At the event I will be talking about how Yield Coin is not a coin that will move based primarily on speculative growth, it will move based on businesses using the token as a point of sale and in return drives liquidity from businesses through Yield Coin. We will also be talking about how Yield Coin can create other businesses blockchain technology and tokens to grow the future of the cryptocurrency eco-sphere.

What inspired you to attend it?
We have a large audience of followers in the UK, my company is one of the largest followed market trading house in the UK on Instagram with over 115,000 followers on @samuelandcotrading, and we wanted to reach a new market, and heading to Dubai to meet like-minded people who are forward thinking and innovative is very attractive for us to show what is capable for the future of blockchain technology. Our head of Tech Matt Wright, is the lead digital architect at Tencent the 4th largest company in the world, and having him with us at the event will allow anyone with further questions around the future of blockchain and cryptos to be able to get answers, which I think is what people both want and need.
