From everyone on the team, we are excited to announce that the DigitalBits Project has been selected as a finalist in the 6th round of the Axonomy Competition! Axonomy (Distributed Business Accelerator) is the major investment body of the Wanxiang Blockchain ecosystem for global blockchain startups. Axonomy incubates high potential projects through an innovative hybrid system, combining decentralized community voting with a centralized final investment decision. DigitalBits is proud to be part of a community that truly believes in the potential of blockchain technology.
Over the course of September 2018, the DigitalBits core team set out on a tour of Asia, with a mandate to expand reach and project awareness. Acknowledging the advancements made in blockchain technology within the Asian community, this tour allowed DigitalBits to connect with some of the worlds brightest blockchain minds.
Thanks to an introduction from the Blockchainer, DigitalBits was invited to meet with Tom Tao, Head of Wanxiang Chainbase Accelerator, and the team at Wanxiang Labs. After sharing our vision of a global token economy and discussing how DigitalBits would contribute to this goal, we were deemed to have created a note-worthy project and invited back to participate in the 6th round of the Axonomy competition. Involvement in this program grants DigitalBits access to support and a community vote, furthering establishing DigitalBits within the Asian community.
