Three crypto startups have been selected to join Startupbootcamp (SBC), Singapore's FinTech accelerator program.

Decentralised peer-to-peer marketplace DeBuNe; blockchain equity issuer Otonomos; and bitcoin wallet provider Cryptosigma will join seven other startups in the three-month programme.

SBC will give each of the participating startups approximately $18,000 in funding, free office space, mentorship and access to a network of angel investors and global venture capitalists such as DBS Bank, Mastercard and Route 66 Ventures in return for 8% in equity.
