The need for better data to evaluate cryptoassets has been a key theme at Australia’s TechKnow Invest conference in Melbourne.

Founder and head of research for UK-based Mosaic, Dr Garrick Hileman, told the conference the company’s new Blockchain platform will help close the information gap currently in the crypto market.

“Mosaic’s trying to solve what we think is one of the biggest problems in crypto today which is the lack of reliable data and research on all these different projects,” Dr. Hileman told the conference.

Mosaic is currently conducting a Token Sale, offering 250 million tokens in a private pre-sale, with ETH and BTC both accepted.

“We want to make Mosaic a trustworthy source of data, research and information for what we see as a rapidly growing ecosystem,” said Dr. Hileman.

Micro savings platform Bamboo also presented at the TechKnow conference in Sydney and Melbourne.

Bamboo helps round-up user’s spare change from the past month’s purchases and invests it into diversified cryptocurrency holdings.

Founder Nesh Sooriyan discussed how Bamboo can be used to invest in Bitcoin and other coins through a simple mobile app.

The investor conference featured fintech companies from around the world, including some of Australia’s leading startups.

The Mosaic team will visit Perth Friday, for Perth Fintech, an event organised by DigitalX Ltd.
