Challenge outline

The Malta Blockchain Summit taking place on 1-2 of November this year will launch a Blockchain Hackathon powered by CryptoFriends, which is expected to bring a horde of blockchain developers and students to the ‘Blockchain Island’, to compete for a prize in Bitcoin equivalent to 50,000 EUR. The anticipated number of attendees at the summit will be no less than 5000 people.

The Blockchain Hackathon set to take place at the Malta Blockchain Summit between the 31st of October and the 2nd of November, is a unique opportunity for blockchain developers or students who are looking to get ahead. Apart from the 50,000 EUR prize awarded to the winning team of the coding competition, Hackathon teams will be provided with invaluable networking opportunities among the C-level delegates attending the conference.

Participants can enroll as a team or as individuals; all participating members will be put in teams, so that those applying as individuals will be grouped together or assigned to existing teams. Make sure to apply by the 15th of September 2018, to avoid disappointment. Applicants will be contacted regarding admission results within one month from the application.

To win the 50,000 EUR prize, the teams must develop a dApp, or other smart contract implementation on the chosen platform that satisfies the panel of judges. Both decentralized and distributed solutions will be considered.
