About the event

The German Blockchain Award 2020 was designed by BLOCKROCKET to showcase the best blockchain-related early-stage startups in the financial, crypto, and industrial space in Germany.

On December 15, 20 early-stage blockchain startups competed in two different categories (10 startups for the “Idea Stage” + 10 startups for the “Seed Stage”) in front of 200+ leading executives, founders, and investors from the blockchain ecosystem in Germany.

In this article, we would like to honor the 3 winners of the category “Seed Stage” (startups >200,000 EUR funding in 2020). The event was divided into two different stages:

  • A short elevator pitch of 60 seconds per startups (voted by the audience)
  • A regular pitch (5min pitch + 5min Q&A) of the top 3 startups (voted by the jury)

The company enables everyone to invest into hand-picked, asset-backed investments like real estate, artworks, and oldtimers via its blockchain-based investment platform. Investors invest digitally, from 500 Euros, and complete the investment process within 3 minutes. The advantages for the investors: No own asset management, the receipt of an annual interest rate, and the participation in the performance of the asset. Through tradeable virtual shares, investors profit just like an owner.

FINEXITY makes the unbankable, bankable! It facilitates and accelerates the access to tangible asset investments for everyone — that’s how you invest like an owner today.

3rd place - Trality

Moritz Putzhammer and Trality - a platform for anyone to create and invest through automated trading bots.

While professional traders successfully use automated trading, over 80% of private traders lose money due to emotional bias and lack of automation. That’s why we build the first marketplace for trading bots that is available for traders of all levels of experience. With just a few taps from their mobile app, we enable followers to easily invest in bots created on the platform. To attract the best bot creators, we offer the most advanced tools for bot creation in private trading as well as the option to participate in revenue generated from their follower-base.

It is Trality’s vision to become a 1-stop shop for automated investments. Bots will manage users’ investments - across asset classes, across platforms - all in one place.
