Went for Kalganids, because I didn't want the currency name to refer to any existing country or currency. Of course, I would have preferred the Euro, because then I wouldn't need to worry about currency exchange and could just use whatever I already have in my wallet :D But still, Kalganid sounds fair enough. I guess it's referring to Asimov's books and not to the Chinese or Australian areas :)

This will be a joint announcement with a purse sponsor, "a very exciting and well-known Fortune 500 company". No specifics have been announced, but the prize is supposed to be "in the tens of millions of dollars".

What kind of a space race are they trying to kindle now?"
