Lugano, Switzerland: May 30th – Cryptocurrency app Eidoo is inviting selected ICOs to pitch at The ICO Race held in Lugano, to win a staggering total of $1 million towards token sales.

The event one of the first of its kind in the crypto world that will award money to an ICO in exchange for tokens, following a rigorous process judged by a panel of seven experts within the sector.

Each ICO will have a 10-minute pitch in front of a qualified panel of judges who will make their evaluation based on five steps; solution of the problem, business & token sale model, token sale terms, the team behind the ICO and their pitch. In addition to the prizes, Eidoo is offering the ICOs attending the semi-finals and finals the option of a 20% discount on their acclaimed ICO Engine Platform.

The experienced panel of judges will include:

  • Lars Schlichting, partner of Kellerhals-Carrard
  • Thomas Bertani, CEO of Eidoo and founder of Oraclize
  • Paolo Ardoino, CTO at Bitfinex
  • Federico Tosato, founder of Adm Ventures and Yeldo
  • Anna Palmina, managing director of Palmina Ivest
  • Marc P. Bernegger, member Advisory Board of Cryptofinance Group
  • Mike Costache, CEO of d10e & Advisory Board of TaaS

ICOs are coming from a wide range of sectors including finance, IoT, artificial intelligence and identity, amongst many others. Successful ICOs will be ranked based on the evaluation given by the judges.


Bitfinex, the world’s largest and most advanced cryptocurrency trading platform, will be taking center stage at the event as the main speaker. Bitfinex appearance at the event strongly marks the ICO Race as a must-see on the crypto calendar, as the acclaimed digital asset trading platform is rarely involved with events of this nature.

Among the ICO Race sponsors, attendees can expect to have the chance of meeting several companies currently making strong leads in the crypto world including KPMG, Santiment, CryptoCompare, ParkinGo, Sgame and many more.


ICO Race will also be the event of choice for the first public demonstration of Wallem, a Pokemon Go style game for the crypto world where users can walk around a city collecting crypto tokens.

An innovative mix of augmented reality, users will be battling to steal tokens from each other in an interactive, single or multiplayer game that is set to become the trending game for 2018.
