The Kiev conference had an accessible and competitive presentation. In which a number of ICO projects were pushed to compete to gain the attention of potential investors and also to collect funds for the further development. The Blockchain Investing Consortium (BIC) the group of institutions that are managing more than $2 billion, came up with the prize pool of 100BTC or $390,000.

In a crowded room where you could feel the technology floating in the air, the founders of the latest ICOs pitched their technologies to the audience. Each and every one of them had the vision to add something new and valuable to the blockchain technology and also to the world. Here are 8 projects that caught our attention:
