Why a “Blockathon”?

All partner organizations at Blockchain@UBC share the vision that blockchain technology’s unique characteristics of verifiable provenance, pseudonymous security, and math-based trust can expedite the timeline of research processes and support greater citizen control over personal medical data.

However, blockchain protocols are not just about code: this technology is so new there’s an equal need for practical implementation. The “Blockathon” thus involves both technical engineering and strategic planning.

Instead of just hunching over individual laptops, the Blockathon will involve resources for diffuse brainstorming, and room will be provided for both quiet reflection and cross-team discussion during the day’s ample breaks. This isn’t a rush to some constructed finish line- it’s an intensive and meaningful networking opportunity.
