Blockchain Hackathon Theme:

Blockchain is the most exciting technology since the introduction of the internet. Blockchain technology will revolutionise many industries and will create significant competitive advantage for companies. Interoperability of Blockchains is a hot topic and is often referred to as ‘The Holy Grail of Blockchain’. While the explosion of ICO’s has brought a range of new projects to the market, many people are asking who will be the eventual winner. As a platform for building decentralized applications across different Blockchains, there is continued growth of verticalized Blockchains. Blockchain interoperability needs to be addressed as an inherent Blockchain capability before we see major integration challenges emerge. The Blockchain Hackathon will focus on this subject.

The tasks will cover:

Interoperability of Blockchains.

Prevention of doublespend.

Smart Contract development.

General Blockchain and DLT solution development
