Moving onto the highlights they experienced, one of the main events was the ISOcar Startup Competition, sponsored by Waves and Crypto Bazaar. Aiming to find the most promising blockchain project, electrify.asia, the first retail electricity marketplace in Southeast-Asia addressing the need for transparency and security in the consumption of energy, took home the title ultimately. On top of winning the title, this project bagged $20,000 in prize money, along with bragging rights for emerging victorious amongst 11 other teams.

Also, ATN, a Blockchain-based AIaaS and World AI, relaunched their token sale right after they gave back the $50,000,000 that they had gained in China to the Chinese government.
