LYOPAY Company Meetup: What happened at the First Online Meet with the Team
November 7th, 2021 was an important day for the project: we held the first LYOPAY Company Meetup! An opportunity to talk about the company, the development of the project, and the industry in which we work. A 360-degree view of our market’s landscape and of what we are building.
We introduced this meeting as a surprise, and were thrilled to see so many people attend! Both our clients and people who approached LYOPAY for the first time. The most delightful part: people joined us from all over the world!
The LYOPAY application is available in Europe for the moment. But seeing such interest from people from Brazil, Bangladesh, Nigeria, India, and other countries and continents, confirmed the importance of our goal: expanding the service around the world.
To welcome such a diverse community, live translation was available during the meeting — in English, Spanish, Portuguese, Russian, Italian, French, German, Greek, Bengali, and Hindi. It was an added value to allow everyone to follow the meeting in a much easier way.
What were the questions raised? And what questions have been answered live? Let’s see in this article!
The LYOPAY Vision — Luiz Goes, CEO
The first speaker was the Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of LYOPAY, Luiz Goes. Luiz is a business executive and he developed and designed business tokenization projects with an emphasis on project implementation and profit-sharing, based on crowdfunding models. In Brazil, he leads a group with over 8,000 clients that participate in the business under his recommendation.
In the LYOPAY Company Meetup, he gave an overview of LYOPAY and what the future holds for us. He explained the vision and mission of LYOPAY, showing the audience what we have set out to do and the plan through which we will achieve it.
LYOPAY has been working hard towards implementing our vision of putting cryptocurrencies in the pockets of millions of people across the world. To achieve this, we are creating an ecosystem of products which will allow people to use cryptocurrencies in all aspects of their daily lives. We will be creating more awareness about cryptocurrencies in the world, as more people will have the ability to use cryptocurrencies in day-to-day transactions.
LYOTRADE & Marketing Strategy — Arif Ansari, COO
Next up was our Chief Operations Officer (COO), Arif Ansari. He has extensive experience as a co-founder and COO in setting up and scaling Fintech startups; co-founded a crypto exchange in Europe and launched a payment company in India.
Arif gave an introduction to our new professional cryptocurrency exchange, LYOTRADE. We are very excited to launch this service, and Arif explained the features of this innovative exchange. What makes LYOTRADE different from all the other exchanges is that it offers high liquidity, as it is connected to over 300 of the largest exchanges in the world. The exchange will support around 800 tokens, which is one of the biggest number of tokens available on any exchange.
LYOTRADE will be launching next month in December 2021, so keep up with our social media to learn more.
Arif also explained our marketing strategy which will push us forward into success. Our main marketing goals are to build the company’s brand and increase our brand awareness in the market. This will involve a four-pronged approach focusing on Content Marketing, Digital Marketing, Social Media, and Demand Generation. To build more global exposure, LYOPAY has been attending blockchain events such as the Future Blockchain Summit 2021 in Dubai, the largest Blockchain exhibition in the Middle East, that brings together game-changing startups.
LYOTRAVEL Launch — Vincenzo Picciuolo, Product Manager
Next in line was Vincenzo Picciuolo, the Product Manager of LYOTRAVEL showcasing our new travel product. With his 18 years of experience in IT, he knows how to define the product vision and aligns every department team in working toward success.
Our travel booking website will provide our customers the ability to book flight tickets, hotels, and plan your vacations using cryptocurrencies. It has a simple interface which is easy to navigate, competitive prices compared to other online booking websites, you can receive discounts and vouchers while booking your tickets, and most importantly, pay in different cryptocurrencies such as LYOCREDIT, BTC, ETH, BNB, ADA, and many more.
LYOPAY Update — Alessio Vinassa, Business Accelerator Advisor
Further on, our Business Accelerator Advisor, Alessio Vinassa, who takes care of project growth strategy and partnership management, began his presentation on an update of LYOPAY. He started off by showing us LYOPAY’s growth in the number of customers over the last quarter. We have seen an increase of 28%, from 35,000 to 48,000 customers.
New entities have been set up in the British Virgin Islands called “DIGIFI GROUP LTD” which will take care of the farming and staking services. The reason for creating this new entity is because we work in a legally compliant framework.

Faijas provides a strategic direction in LYOPAY by monitoring customer satisfaction and industry trends. He thinks that with great leaders, we will have a great team. Our leaders will guide us and give our staff direction, though new staff will be joining soon. He ended his introduction by saying, “Coming together is just the beginning. Keeping together is progress. Working together is success.”
LYOPAY Legal Framework — Baiba Broka, Legal Advisor
Baiba Broka, the Legal Advisor for LYOPAY, took the stage to explain the legal framework within which LYOPAY works. She manages one of the most fundamental parts of a company, which is the legal aspect, notably important in the cryptocurrency industry. Baiba started by introducing her team made up of other junior legal advisors, making sure that LYOPAY takes all the legal precautions. LYOPAY’s approach to business is to be legally compliant with the laws of the land. To provide so many services through LYOPAY, tremendous work goes into making sure that these services are provided in a legal manner in different jurisdictions.
