Tour to Chernobyl
After two action-packed days CGC was still far from its finale. An extreme networking event was organized for the bravest participants – a day-long trip to the ghost town of Pripyat and infamous Chernobyl Nuclear Power Plant, the iconic man-made catastrophe site which was recently depicted in detail by HBO mini-series Chernobyl. Among those who dared to enter the Exclusion Zone were daredevils from XAYA, Arkane Network, DeStream, CoinPoint, and others.
