Best Pre-Crowdsale Token: GoPayWin (GoCoin)
Best Trading Token: GameCredits
Best Startup: CakeCodes
Best Ramp Up: Airbitz
Rising Star: CakeCodes

These winners will have their presentations shared among members of the BitAngels investment group, giving the startups a chance to secure new funding.
The other finalists received honorary plaques, and had the chance to network with investors attending the conference.
CoinAgenda founder Michael Terpin expressed his satisfaction with CoinAgenda’s turnout and the results from the startup competition.
“Once again, the BitAngels network allowed us to field an extraordinary group of presenters, from Australia to Europe, and our judges were impressed by the quality of not only the winners, but the entire group of presenters,” Terpin told Bitcoinist.
“As CoinAgenda expands globally, we look forward to connecting even more exciting blockchain startups with a growing wave of investors seeking out these opportunities.”
CoinAgenda has scheduled a one-day summit in Las Vegas on January 4, 2017, a day before the opening of the highly-popular CES. As part of the summit, Terpin will speak at the CES Blockchain Breakfast as part of the conference’s Digital Money Forum.
