BlockHack is a 5 day hackathon, and 1 day conference, that aims to combine the efforts of entrepreneurs and developers, and promote growth of blockchain-related projects and ventures. We are looking for hackers and teams to work on creative and innovative ways of applying blockchain technology (of any kind) in areas of financial freedom and end-user control.

The BlockHack Hackathon takes place from May 3rd to May 7th, and the Conference is on May 8, where hacker teams will present their project.

Hackathon results will be announced May 9th, and the winners will also get to pitch their projects at the BitAngels Investment event on May 13!

BlockHack wants to help you, a Developer, Entrepreneur, or Investor, navigate through the Blockchain landscape.

Developers

  • Learn about the latest tools in blockchain development
  • Add to your dev portfolio
  • Gain experience working on real blockchain projects

Beginners

  • Learn how to create working blockchain apps

Entrepreneurs

  • Build a working app for your existing project
  • Find developers who want to work with you
  • Showcase your projects to potential investors

Investors

  • Scope new and exciting projects
  • Watch hacker teams present their projects
  • Attend the BitAngels investor event

The Blockchain developer community is spread far and wide – not just geographically but also intellectually. There is a huge developer base, but perhaps not the same level of Blockchain collaboration.

Blockchain technologies will have an impact, not just behind the scenes in computer science, but it will change how we do business and remodel the concept of a business relationship.

BlockHack is already one of the biggest hackathons in Toronto, and the community is continuing to grow rapidly.

Agenda

  • May 3rd - Hacking Begins
  • May 7th - Hacking Ends
  • May 8th - Conference Presentations
  • May 9th - Final Judging Results
  • May 13th - BitAngels Investment Pitch

Only work completed during the hackathon will be considered for judging. Submissions will be made via Devpost.
