Demo Day #2 Ended Successfully! Winners Announced!

8 min readDec 20, 2022


Since our inception, Moledao has been dedicated to encouraging blockchain developers to create great projects in the Web 3.0 space. We have successfully held two global hackathons and a Demo Day, and some of the best projects from these events have steadily grown and progressed further. At the same time, some of these projects needed more capital support for further development and scale. So we organized the second Demo Day.

Demo Day is a showcase event organized by Moledao for Web3.0 startups, with the aim of helping projects get exposure and noticed by multiple investment institutions, as well as helping projects build their brands and connect them with potential partners and resources.

The registration period for Demo Day #2 is from November 7, 2022 to December 5, 2022 where we received a total of 46 valid registrations. There were many projects that have already received funding and have mature products and there are also very early-stage projects looking to get resources and expert advice through Demo Day.

There were eight projects entering Demo Day as a MoleUnicorn Finalist, namely (in alphabetical order): Bitskwela, FindTruman, Forbitspace, Homespace Metaverse, Nawarat, Neon Sundae, Let’s MeMe, Storya.

Eight projects entered the Demo Day as a MoleStarter Finalist, namely (in alphabetical order): ERM LABS, Furion, Gummys, Metapioneers, Mirror World Smart SDK, Rosen Bridge, SweeFi, TRINVI.
