Fighters! 🥊

Thank you! Thank you for joining us in this fight. 🙏 Since March, when the Global Pandemic began, we did not imagine that today we would be here to announce the winners of such an important project. Still, we went to the ring and tried from the first moment to help those who wanted to find solutions to fight the virus. 🦠

Today, with the voting finished, we announce that of the various projects and areas that we received on the TAIKAI platform, the winner is COVIDIAN 🏆. Congratulations on your commitment and dedication! BlockApps and Codeaddict will help you by bringing their knowledge and experience to create a successful app.

But...the most voted project by crowd voting was Nevaro4COVID 🥇 so congratulations also to them for the development of the project in the health area. We will soon announce the surprise we had promised for this public vote. Now, we can only thank all the partners and juries. It was very gratifying to get into a fight for a global cause. 🌎

👉🏻 Check all the projects.
