Scintillating, has created Delphus, a blockchain-based clinical trial management system. During the hackathon, they implemented a new feature to Delphus, namely a user interface that allows patients to see data handoffs by their healthcare provider or clinical researcher. Their ambition is to alleviate the decreasing participation in clinical trials caused by lack of data transparency.

The runner-up went to Team EasyContract which generates smart contracts using natural language processing, followed by Team Acid tied with Team WePay, the former designing a system with autonomous distribution of media content using BYTOM, and the latter bringing cash micro vendors into digital currency ecosystems.

In addition, several projects have also been highly recognized by the guests and judges, such as HypeFactors, a crypto currency discovery and research platform, and NOMOS, a weighted multi-tier decentralized voting platform, etc.
