23 projects had a chance to present to investors their ideas for 6 minutes, but many teams used only the one-third of their time. Experienced pitchers were fine with 3 and even 2 minutes, which shows the attitude to their preparations. The most outstanding in this were ICOs from France, US, and India. Unluckily, only a few Russian participants could handle the same.
The oddity was that many projects didn’t reveal their contacts, which resulted in confusion of the audience. The Jury and investors asked some of them to announce at least their e-mail. Nonetheless, the lack of communication was bringing the overall interest down. So it did for the Jury as well, which lowered the project’s worth. For experts, a miss of this opportunity was the sign of an amateur.
In case of Russia ICO Show, the Jury noted three best candidates (Third place — eCoinomic; Second place — Trecento, First — Romad), on World ICO Show the winner was supposed to be alone. The best project was to receive $100,000 from IDACB FUND to participate in one of World Blockchain Show Asian tours. However, the Jury did not consider only one and decided to select three best projects which will share the prize to choose themselves from any IDACB program.
That given, the awards are as follows:
3rd place — AI Innovation Japan, the largest ICO incubator in Japan, holding to aims which are close with the ones at IDACB: bringing the projects to the legal field. The award is $20,000
2nd place — KOYNCE, crypto exchange of next generation. Projects award is $30,000
1st place — Aitheon, a project in the fields of AI and robotics, awarded with $50,000
Especially noted by the Jury: AI Opinion, Bundle Network and again ROMAD. At some point, because these projects were already presented at Russia ICO Show in April and the progress can be reviewed. However for the ecsiting ideas as well.
