The ICO hype is here to stay. That was the message that rang loud and clear as some of the world’s most exciting new blockchain startups mingled with crypto influencers and investors at the exclusive CryptoFriends Hypeup in Singapore. More than 300 crypto enthusiasts gathered on the rooftop at the Hotel Jen Orchardgateway to get the latest insights into the world of crypto and of course party into the night with a world-first crypto-concert by breakthrough indie pop group, Pompeya.
CryptoFriends is a team of blockchain & crypto professionals with a wide network of connections wordwide. They have quickly become the go-to experts when it comes to organizing high-end blockchain-related events.
The main sponsors of the intimate HypeUp included Esports.com BlockEX and CoinTelegraph and included guest talks by some of today’s most esteemed blockchain influencers. There was also a highly anticipated panel discussion on cryptofunds, featuring some of blockchain´s biggest hitters: Daniel Shashoua, Sefi Golan, Mike Costache, Anatolii Radchenko and Brock Pierce. Once again, the master of ceremonies and moderator for the event was Cryptopay MD, Eric Benz.
With the stunning Singapore skyline twinkling in the distance, the panellists illuminated the crowd with some priceless wisdom and inspiration. Brock Pierce concluded the discussion by predicting that the decentralized and democratic nature of blockchain technology and ICO funding meant that the Mark Zuckerbergs of the future won’t just come from Silicon Valley, but from all corners of the world.
As with most CryptoFriends events, the real stars were the ICOs. The main event included seven handpicked startups where they were able to pitch their ideas and announce their token sales to an eager audience looking for the latest attractive investment opportunities.

Following the ICO pitches were further ICO presentations from three of the Hypeup sponsors, eSports, Blockex, and Arbidex. If this was not enough, participants also saw a special performance from Jason King and Bryce Case with an incredible Cryptorap.
