We are absolutely thrilled to be awarded “Best Blockchain Startup of the Year”! Thank you everyone at CESAwards for this, and thank you all on the Bethereum community for your voting and constant support. Bethereum is now one of the 7 startups in the world who qualified to compete for Best Blockchain startup of the year at the Global Startup Awards (GSA) Grand Finale. The event will take place in Changsha, China on 11–14th December, 2019. We are honored to be among the 7 finalists, out of thousands of startups worldwide who applied to compete for this prestigious award.

The GSA is the largest independent startup ecosystem in the world, already present in over 60 countries and growing every year. They aim to find, recognize, and connect the Futureshapers of the digital age from around the world. The Global Startup Awards started in Denmark in 2012, and each year selects and awards startups in the tech and web industries that have shown outstanding achievements in business. Working with local partners in each of the regions they operate in, they go on an annual expedition to find those companies and individuals that have gone on to become a game changer or inspiration to users and fans.

To get to this achievement, being one of the 7 finalists out of nearly 5,500 startups who applied, Bethereum had to win both the Central European Startup Awards (CESAwrads) nationals and regionals, at the CESAwards Grand Finale. CESAwards is part of the GSA. It is committed to endorse and mark the startup spirit of the Central and Eastern European region, and to put the region on the global startup map.

The Grand Finale award event took place in Bucharest, Romania, where we competed against a selection of the top most promising Blockchain startups in the entire central and eastern European region. Bethereum competed against the national winners of Austria, Bulgaria, Czech Republic, Croatia, Hungary, Poland, Romania, Serbia, and Slovenia for the “Best Blockchain Startup of the Year at the Central and Eastern European region”, and won!

Winning the CESAwards Grand Finale, and being 1 of the 7 finalists for the GSA, competing for Best Blockchain Startup of 2019, is a tremendous achievement for Bethereum! We would like to thank again CESAwards team for this honor, and our many loyal community members for your constant support. You are welcome to watch Bethereum announced as the winners here.
