Italian startup Helperbit wins the fintech category

On November 15th in Sofia, the capital of Bulgaria, the Italian startup Helperbit was awarded the title of Best European Startup in the fintech sector at the Startup Europe Awards.

Helperbit, which launched its service a few days ago, aims to facilitate cryptocurrency donations to non-profit organizations. The benefit of such a system, according to the website of the initiative, is greater transparency and speed of donations.

In addition to these advantages, Helperbit also boasts greater efficiency than its traditional counterparts as well as a more direct approach (p2p).

Mariya Gabriel, Commissioner for Society and Digital Economy, presenting the award to Helperbit, commented:

Europe wants to have more like you. More of your passion, dedication, talent and energy. We believe in your dream and you have already showcased that progress is made with small steps, and that to become successful it takes long nights and serious thinking on how to approach the most challenging topics. You showcased that success can come from anywhere in Europe. And you showcased that in order to succeed you must be bold and brave”.

According to the CEO of Helperbit, this is an important step not only for his company but also for the entire fintech sector.

This is because, as he explained, permissionless blockchains and cryptocurrencies are among the most important innovations of the century and are already influencing people’s lives.

He also points out that the impact of these technologies can be amplified to the benefit of citizens and governments, adding:

“the European Commission has a fundamental role in this process and we are glad that it has selected Helperbit as a virtuous example to award during this event”.
