Innovation Marketplace

This particular event will show innovation, products and services that aims at improving people life. And now it also opened up to blockchain-related projects.

Among those startups, there will be Helperbit that use the distributed ledger to solve problems related to inefficiency, opacity and inadequate administration of the funds when disasters happen.

So, through the distributed ledger, Helperbit wants to make the flow of donations visible and transparent, so that the redistribution of money would be solved.

Helperbit is a natural disaster management platform that wants to help stricken people with a simple peer-to-peer donation system.

In fact, have you ever wondered what happens to the donated money? And what if it never reaches its final destination?

During the past few years, when a disaster event occurred, often someone talked about the fact that the money was gone and never reached the poor people affected.

Helperbit wants to solve this common behavior.Helperbit CEO Guido Baroncini Turricchia, explained:
