Our first ever ICO‑Hypethon, a totally new concept in blockchain networking and our flagship event. The Hypethon is a mix of hackethon, accelerator, incubator, speaker conference, networking event and music festival. Several national and international media outlets joined us, hoping to capture a piece of the blockchain hype on display.
The event united ICO angels, experts, dozens of successful ICO projects, and blockchain industry enthusiasts under one roof. The main goal was to provide up‑and‑coming ICO teams with opportunities to fine‑tune their projects to perfection, with mentor and investor support. Hence, over twenty startups had prepared their pre‑ICOs to be launched there.
Meanwhile, top‑notch blockchain experts gathered to provide invaluable technical and legal support. The winning projects shared the prizes, and most of them have now become (or are on their way to becoming) successful businesses.
Away from the contest, we heard fascinating talks from some of the leading blockchain industry experts, such as Jon Matonis, Tone Vays, Alexander Ivanov, Eric Benz and Vladimir Dyomin.
The ICO‑Hypethon was hosted by Eberhard Lindfordt, who have partnered with us on a whole array of events. The company provides marketing and consulting services in blockchain industry and helps young, talented projets get financing through holding an ICO.
If you have been nurturing the idea of launching and ICO, but haven’t had the tools, belief or support to take the final step, Cryptofriends Hypethons are your chance to pitch your ground‑breaking plan and get immediate feedback.
