Finished: 13-14 November 2021: BLING international hackathon on blockchain

Venue: Online:
On the 13th and 14th of November, the BLING project organizes their international blockchain-hackathon called ‘BLINGathon’. The registration is now open!

What is a hackathon?

A hackathon is an ‘Inventors-competition’ where students, professionals and entrepreneurs compete in solving challenges. The competitors work together in small teams to invent solutions for a wide variety of blockchain related challenges. A hackathon is time constrained and each team will have 30 hours to find a solution for their challenge. During these 30 hours the challengers are able to join various fun and useful activities. For example, a masterclass about presenting your project or a blockchain pub quiz. All of these activities can be followed live on the BLINGathon website.

What are the challenges?

The BLING partners have defined challenges based on real problems in their organizations. These challenges are divided in five tracks and teams participating in the BLINGathon work on one of these tracks:

  • Energy
  • Transport
  • Verifiable credentials
  • E-Voting
  • Tokens

When you find a great solution to a challenge there is a chance that one of the partners in BLING wants to adopt it and bring it to the next level. HOW COOL IS THAT !

I’m interested!

Do you want to challenge your problem solving skills? Are you looking for a fun event with a group of friends or colleagues? Or are you interested in meeting new groups of amazing people? Clear-up your schedule for the 13th and 14th of November and register yourself or your team for BLINGathon!
