GBA London HACKATHON Series – Supply Chain

April 30, 2018 @ 8:00 am 8:30 pm Europe/London

Blockchain events are great but you feel like you want to actually get your hands on and work on actual blockchain solutions for the greater good?

The GBA Hackathon series is just for you! Every two month we will organize specific use case events and will give you a chance to build a blockchain solution for it. You can join alone or register your team, we will complete the teams on the day. 

THE PRINCIPLE: 

Each Hackathon will be composed of our previous monthly meetup themes. Teams of 3-4 people will race over one day to solve a Government specific issue using Blockchain technology. 

Our first Hackathon will be about the Supply chain and will occur on the 30th of April At the end of the Challenge, teams will pitch in 5 minutes their solutions – the top 3 teams will be announced on the day. 

REWARDS: 

Top 3 teams: The top 3 teams will be invited to defy the Counsel of Nodes and present their solution to a prestigious panel composed of Government representatives, Blockchain and Industry Experts who will pick the winning team. 

A 5 minutes video featuring the 3 finalists will be produced from that shooting and released on social media and in our YouTube channel Winning team:

  • Introduction to our numerous governments and institutions contacts across the world
  • A free spot for the team lead in our annual Conference at the end of this year 
  • The winning team will also be invited to pitch their solution on our GBA monthly events.

FAQ:

How long will the event lasts?
Will do the first on over one on the 30th of April. We will scale the hackathons over several days over time.

Will Coding be necessary?
Coding will not be mandatory, we will encourage the teams to go as far as possible in the tokenomics and blockchain design to have a robust solution. Any background is welcome to join. You will need to be comfortable that you can deliver the solution presented if a government is interested. The top 3 teams selected for the crypto dragons den will have a few days to polish their projects. More coding might be worth doing at this stage as the teams will be on the grill with a panel of highly knowledgeable industry and blockchain influencers
