Monaco, June 03, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — (via Blockchain Wire) CoinAgenda (www.coinagenda.com), the premier conference series, connecting blockchain and cryptocurrency investors with startups since 2014, today announced the winners of the CoinAgenda Europe Blockchain Startup Competition powered by angel network, BitAngels (bitangels.network). Coming in first place: Fly Air, parent company of Fly App, which combines voice-activated artificial intelligence with the security and convenience of blockchain technology to provide access to more than 10,000 private jets, allowing anyone to fly on-demand with no membership or hidden fees. In second place was Icecap, which offers investment-grade diamonds via NFT technology. Icecap solves difficulties in the traditional diamond investment landscape associated with large buy/sell spread, illiquidity, inaccessible marketplace, and lack of fungibility.
In third place was a draw between RAIRtech, which attaches digital goods to an NFT using encrypted streaming, and Untold, a web3 platform and digital community that connects award-winning filmmakers, investors, and major distributors to curate content.
CoinAgenda Startup Competition winners competed against a mix of angel and VC investments (as well as tokens trading on exchanges) in a Demo Day environment to judges and the CoinAgenda audience of investors and entrepreneurs.
Fly App, Icecap, RAIRtech and Untold will all be awarded an exhibitor booth at a future CoinAgenda conference (including the upcoming one in Las Vegas Oct 21-23) of their choice, and Fly App will receive a VIP conference pass as well as a press release credit sponsored by Blockchain Wire. Past CoinAgenda Competition winners include Aeternity, Bancor, Cashbet, Omega One, SALT Lending, and Qtum which have gone on to raise millions in funding.
