Blockchain Startups With Real World Applications
You might have already heard, but Bitmark has been selected as one of twelve startups to participate in the 2019 UC Berkeley Blockchain Xcelerator! We’re very excited, and would like to thank Blockchain at Berkeley, The Sutardja Center for Entrepreneurship and Technology, and the Haas School of Business for this opportunity to connect with the extensive resources that the Berkeley and Silicon Valley communities can provide.
Over the course of the next few weeks we’ll be meeting with advisors, mentors, and industry experts, attending weekly pitch sessions and speaker sessions. The accelerator offers the opportunity to receive an investment of up to $200k USD from the X-Fund, a VC focused on investing in UC Berkeley’s Blockchain ecosystem and emerging technologies. We’ll also have the potential to win additional investments from partner funds.
What makes this accelerator so unique is that its leadership seeks to push blockchain technology beyond the hype of cryptocurrency and further its adoption practical tool. This first batch of teams consists of startups that are more than just ICOs and quick ways to make some cash. We have all demonstrated the ability to offer concrete new ways to use blockchain to solve real problems and create new value.
Bitmark is certain that data is the world’s next major asset class. We use blockchain to defend the evolution of property rights; from physical and intellectual property to data and digital property. To read more about us and our fellow teams, check out:
