8 teams were selected from 98 applicants after due diligence to compete in this invitational qualifier with the top 4 winners splitting a prize purse of $25k (presented by Green) and a chance to win a bid to the 64 team tournament that will culminate in the World Finals next October/November in Dubai during the World's Fair.

Laramie, Wyoming was selected as the venue for this North American regional qualifier and the winning teams here will join the best teams to emerge from each of the other global regional invitationals for a chance to win a trip to Dubai to compete for the Grand Prize Global Finals in October-November 2020, along with a customized group experience at expo2020dubai.com

This game-show inspired, bracket-style, cryptocurrency/blockchain startup competition is fun and inspiring and not to be missed.
