Binance Crypto and Blockchain Event in Singapore a Resounding Success
The final presentations of the Binance Blockchain Week in Singapore have concluded today marking the end of the four day event which has attracted thousands of attendees.
Two Day Conference Follows Two Day Hackathon
The event has been a resounding success with many of the biggest names in the industry taking the stage to promote the crypto ecosystem and a blockchain future. The world’s largest exchange by trade volume identified the need for a unifying conference in a market with a ‘large degree of turmoil’ at the moment. The goals of re-energizing and uniting efforts as uncertainty plagues the industry have been at the forefront of proceedings in Singapore.
The first two days held a hackathon based on the Binance ‘buidl’ ethos of working together to improve overall crypto security and foster a safer trading environment for the public. Using the Secure Asset Funds for Users (SAFU) acronym, teams from around the globe entered into friendly competition to enhance innovation in the industry.
Some of the innovative concepts from teams included deep graph analytics, avalanche consensus on a custom ledger, an e-commerce platform for a database of user reputation, and a crypto scoring platform. The winning team, Merkle Blox, proposed a smart contract based insurance to victims of hackers, ponzi schemes, or phishing scams. A prize of $50,000 in BNB was awarded.
