Prosperas a winner at Santander X Global Challenge

A global challenge to identify the most innovative startups and scaleups with the greatest potential for growth in the use of blockchain technology

Blockchain technology is revolutionising the world just as the internet did in its day, and an increasing number of sectors see the enormous potential in this type of technology in terms of redefining and enhancing their business models.

With the aim of supporting innovation to improve productivity and employment, as well as to solve problems relevant to society, Banco Santander and Oxentia Foundation are launching the Santander X Global Challenge | Blockchain and Beyond to seek out startups and scaleups with innovative and scalable solutions using blockchain technology.

At the event in Decentraland, and with a space designed by Polygonal Mind, the 6 winners of this global challenge, apart from the cash prize and access to Santander X 100, received an exclusive NFT designed by Oxentia Foundation. In addition, users who access to watch the final via streaming on Decentraland got the wearables of the event: a cap and a bracelet that will allow them to customize their Metaverse avatars.
