The recent cryptocurrency and Blockchain conference CoinAgenda Europe has announced winners for the conference contest this year.

The contest among startup and ICO companies was intended to bring some of the finest talent from the Blockchain and cryptocurrency worlds to the limelight.

The first prize was split three ways, with SALT Lending, Hive platform and Omega One all taking home first place honors.

The main thrust of all three companies is the creation of a system that protects users from market change and insecurity, while at the same time allowing for more flexibility with investment and financing.

Second and third place also revolved around financing and cryptocurrency usage models. Organizers said:

“A lot of companies received great exposure to the top-tier investors and funds attending, and the judges found three companies to be of such high quality that they all received perfect scores.”

The annual show was held in Barcelona this year and attracted around 200 participants. Other Blockchain and cryptocurrency conferences are also in the works in Europe, showing the large scale support for new financing methodologies.
