2018 has shown that the demand for crypto projects is still high, with many continuing to set their sights on long-term investments. This push has prompted DX.Exchange to host an ICO pitch at the London Summit 2018 in the hope of finding the next promising project.
Held at the summit’s Crypto Trading Floor, the demo slam will feature a total of thirteen projects, each of which will be competing for a free listing on the exchange at its launch – no small perk, worth $250,000.
Searching for the next game-changing ICO
The ICO pitch will be held on November 14 at Old Billingsgate Vaults. It is specifically geared towards projects with a solid token model and proven traction.
Each final project will have 10-minutes to win over the audience and judges.
The judges include, among others, DX.Exchange CEO Daniel Skowronski and ICORating Head of Partnerships, Mikhail Mironov. The winner will be announced by DX.Exchange, which has over 5,000 users, on the Crypto Trading Floor.
“We are looking for revolutionary projects that solve big problems, improve the crypto ecosystem, and have the potential to disrupt industries using decentralized technology,” said Skowronski. Without further ado, its time to meet the twelve competitors:
