The Roadshow Pitching session was a huge part of the event and saw teams presenting their new crypto games to a panel of experts. The competition – which included a $15,000 investment prize – was won by Axie Infinity. The developer was welcomed up on stage, to take his bow, by Toni Xu of Super Game Chain.
