ICON Awards features the world’s first celebration of the best and brightest in blockchain projects around the world
The world’s First ICO Awards Ceremony to be Held in London in December. The ICON awards single out the best ICO projects from around the world, aiming to reward talent and success for the masterminds behind the projects. The ceremony will happen in London the upcoming December 7.
Why ICON Awards?
In this fast-moving world of crypto projects, its hard to evaluate and recognise success. The amount of capital raised initially is always a good sign of the worthiness of the project, and a number of rating sites help us to assess what best projects are out there. Unfortunately, the so-called experts on these sites may not always be independent and unbiased in their assessments.
That’s the reason why founders Clara Florey of DisPRupter PR and Adam Hill of ICOSofa came up with the idea to recognise and celebrate – through public voting instead of the so-called experts – the best ICOs running globally. They are joined by an in international team of professionals working in this area including Jillian Godsil (Dublin), Peter Kristensen (Florida) Pedro Borges (São Paulo) and Oliver Cheatham (New York).
Florey explains: “In this fast-moving world of ICOs there was nothing to mark the success of projects in a professional sense. Yes, there is the capital raised – always a good sign. Yes, there were any number of rating sites, but it seems as if the experts could be persuaded to rate favourites.”
The ICON Awards offers the most transparent and immutable way for individual investors, partners, suppliers and fans to vote for the best crypto projects and people without any ‘expert’ interference. In short, its participatory democracy at work.
The ceremony will feature 20 different categories in total, each one rewarded with its respective award: Finance; Healthcare; Energy/Utilities; Gaming AR/VR/Entertainment; Media/Content/Advertising Social Networks; Commerce/Retail; Education/Music/Arts; Social Impact; Charity; Professional Services Security/Identity/Verification; Best ICO Advisor (individual); Best Marketing Campaign; Best Fund; Best Consultancy (company); Best CEO; Best Young CEO (under 30) and Best B2B ICO.
Finally, there is one more reward to be awarded at the ceremony, for the most voted ICO overall. The lucky winner will take home the most prestigious prize which the ICON, 2018
