Conferences update: Bethereum racing to the top at ICO Race

Greetings from Switzerland, where our team was representing us as they visited the enchanting city of Lugano that lays at the banks of the beautiful lake of the same name.

On the 7th of June at the Palazzo dei Congressi in Lugano, our founders Giacomo and Martin took the opportunity to participate in this year’s ICO Race. The conference was headlined by its eponymous contest with 150 blockchain projects applying for a shot at the biggest prize ever offered in an event of this type: a total of $1 Million USD prize money and the privilege of being listed on Bitfinex, a premiere crypto-exchange website that regularly ranks within the global top 3. All participants would get coverage in the Cryptonomist, a leading Swiss crypto magazine.

The actual event featured nearly 40 selected blockchain projects competing against each other before an audience of hundreds of industry executives, financial experts and potential contributors.

Bethereum advanced all the way to the finals after Giacomo and Martin really got the crowd going in the semis where the excitement was in the air and then we managed to qualify for the 10 minute pitch in the finals! We got great responses from not only the crowd, but also from the judges. We will have a video coming soon so that you can see just what happened!

Stay tuned for the video from our pitch and keep in touch with us to hear more as we keep on representing Bethereum throughout events such as this! And don’t forget, our main sale (starting on the 28th of June 2018) is approaching fast.
