ADCA and Blockchain Australia are delighted to announce the finalists for the inaugural Australian Blockchain Industry Awards.

ADCA CEO, Nicholas Giurietto, said “the judges were very impressed with the quality of the entries and often found it a challenge to separate the excellent from the awesome”.
