Blockchain Cuties’ Annual Industry Leaders Awards 2018

We are still in the early years of crypto and it can be a cold and cutthroat industry to be in. There are no regulations and total anonymity. Basically it’s the Wild West in all its beauty. This is why it’s important for the good guys to stick together to lead by example and push the envelope.

This is why today, on Blockchain Cuties 1st anniversary, we established Annual Industry Leaders Awards. Every year after Christmas we will be celebrating the most prominent figures in the industry.

You might wonder what will the Crypto Oscars look like. And the answer is that they will be as unique and special as the laureates themselves. We have created a series of custom cuties to celebrate the pioneers of crypto of 2018.

The jury’s decision is in!

Please welcome Blockchain Cuties’ Annual Industry Leaders Awards laureates:
