ABOUT THIS CATEGORY
This category will recognise the most innovative blockchain use case or technological advancement.
This could be the launch of a payment platform, use of a cryptocurrency, or a blockchain initiative that will change the way existing infrastructure operates, since January 2018.
Their success will be judged on the initiative’s usability, technological innovation, consumer uptake, multi-channel approach, its launch and its impact on service innovation, transaction quantities, revenue and quality of service.
Judges will be looking for evidence of blockchain innovation and how the deployment of the technology has led to a successful product launch.
