LAS VEGAS, Jan. 9, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- World Tokenomic Forum, the leading international organization enabling public-private cooperation, multi-chain interoperability, and innovation will begin accepting applications to compete in its Sandcastle Startups Challenge from around the globe today on its website. If you are a blockchain-related technology startup you can apply to compete at www.worldtokenomicforum.com

Chris J Snook (Founder/Executive Chairman), Travis Wright (Co-Founder/Vice Chairman) and the entire executive team including several World Tokenomic Forum member companies, and affiliated capital firms, are in Las Vegas at CES 2018 scouting startups at Eureka Park and around the expo floor.

World Tokenomic Forum anticipates over 1,000 startup applications as part of a 75-day blitz around the world that includes stops in Singapore, Thailand, Indonesia, India, the European Union and culminating with an invitation-only Cryptohouse event in Austin, Texas March 9th-15th 2018.

The deadline to apply is March 15, 2018.

"The World Tokenomic Forum consists of a highly-curated membership base that represent some of the leading voices in cryptocurrency, technology, capital markets, and regulatory influence, and the Sandcastle Startups Challenge is our most important initiative in 2018. We will continue  providing the place and space for collaborative debate and problem solving amongst our members, as well as a new platform for vetting, mentoring, capitalizing, and scaling the technologies that will shape our collective economic future," said Chris J Snook.

The Sandcastle Startups Challenge will be a head-to-head bracket style venture challenge that begins in Mid-April 2018 with a virtual round of 64 teams that battle through a proprietary online voting (crowd) system and a World Tokenomic Forum Sandcastle judging committee. The 32 winners of the first round will win an all-expense paid (excluding airfare) trip to Grand Cayman May 8-10th 2018 to compete during the World Tokenomic Forum Annual Summit of members for a Grand Prize that includes over $1 million dollars worth of exchange listings, services, development, and cash value.

The World Tokenomic Forum is protective of the privacy of its member base but some members and prize sponsors who have agreed to be named include Cayman Enterprise City, The India National Crypto Exchange, The Australia National Crypto Exchange, Relitrade.io, BankChain, Digi.city, Bonin Ventures, Incubate Holdings, Launch Haus, The Jindal Centre For Social Innovation & Entrepreneurship, and Meticulosity. 

"The time for a platform to help find the signal through the noise, and hold substantial dialogues in an intimate setting, with representatives across the value chain from each constituency of humanity, is now," said Snook "And that is what the World Tokenomic Forum and our Sandcastle initiative provide."

World Tokenomic Forum removes the hype-cycles of high-volume blockchain events, mainstream media buzz, and politicized agendas of blockchain and cryptocurrency, and drills deep into the true efficacy and consequences of adopting or failing to embrace a digital society and harness the technologies that power it.

The Sandcastle Startups Challenge is one of the latest vehicles by which World Tokenomic Forum will materialize its purpose of building bridges and tearing down walls between decentralized and centralized economic institutions to create a new economic order that works for all humanity, honors innovation, and secures sovereignty.
