The event started with a presentation and Q&A session led by 5 projects (AI Network, Motorchain OÜ, wehome, Team Freema, Logistics Network ) that have passed the screening stage.

Presentation Teams

Project #1 : AI Network — AI

AI Network is a blockchain network that looks to force a paradigm shift from dedicating a massive amount of computing resources on mining (i.e. running identical hash operations in parallel) to building a federation of distributed computing resources that solves real-world AI problems. This concept is known as Proof of Useful Work, and would result in enormous savings on electricity.

Project #2 : Motorchain OÜ — Vehicle data

Motorchain ​​provides participants with compensation for data sharing to improve the collection structure of vehicle data
It is a vehicle data-based decentralized application to activate and create a reliable mobility market.

Project #3 — wehome — Homesharing

wehome is decentralized home sharing owned by guests and hosts. Harnessing the Blockchain, wehome realizes the Platform Cooperativism that is the fundamental philosophy of the Sharing Economy. They are adding new values to the centralized home sharing lead by Airbnb: commission free, easy hosting, and community ownership.

Project #4 : Team Freema (Donorts) — Social donation

Donorts, blockchain-based social donation platform, incentivizes donation, sharing, and volunteering to encourage more active good behavior. This would be a way to track the societal value of various philanthropic activities, and the amount of tokens one owns signifies how much you’ve contributed to society. by using compensation as a free gift for others or rewarding others as a basis for evaluating social credibility We realize the social value through.

Project #5 : Logistics Network (Logistics X) — Logistics

LogisticsX provides tracking and transparency to the shipping industry using blockchain technology. It looks to optimize this industry through the sharing of extra shipping space among different parties. Blockchain technology can provide the necessary layer of trust among participants.

Each presentation was followed by a Q&A session from the panel. The winner of the second blockchain demo day went to AI network. AI network was rewarded with ICX worth 3mil KRW (app. 3,000 USD)

There was a networking session shortly after the award ceremony, bringing everybody together to celebrate another successful blockchain demo day.

The competition is growing and new projects are applying for the demo day event. “New Kids on the Block(chain)” will be held every month. We’re looking forward to next month’s event, as we hope this demo day continues to grow the ICON ecosystem.

Thank you,
