The Blockchain Accelerator
Bethereum participated in HYPE Sports Innovation 2019 Sports-Blockchain accelerator.
This year, HYPE Sports Innovation launched, for the first time, a blockchain accelerator for sports technology. Blockchain technology is already changing the sports industry, and this world’s first accelerator is perfectly positioned to help startups to capitalize on the rapidly growing demand for blockchain applications.
This was a 14-week program for 10 of the leading startups from around the world focusing on blockchain for sports technology. It was designed to identify the most promising companies working on blockchain applications for sports, and assist them on their journey to success. The participants can benefit from unmatched access to HYPE’s global network of teams, investors and partners, and this can really be a game-changer for startups on their path to becoming major players in the industry.
