Event description
Bridging the gap between entrepreneurs and blockchain technology, promoting growth for blockchain-related projects and ventures

About this event

BlockHack is a 3 day hackathon, aiming 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.

Teams can may use any blockchain platform during the hackathon

BlockHack takes place from June 3rd to June 5th. Hackathon results will be announced June 5th, and the winners will also get to pitch their projects at the BitAngels Investment event on June 7th at AIBC.World in Toronto!

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

Gaming & eSports

Video games have come a long way since their inception in the 70s. The industry has grown and evolved throughout the years, with competitive eSports and social / mobile games driving worldwide adoption. Today, the gaming industry has a market size estimated worth over $150 billion USD.

This BlockHack is aimed at building unique tools, interesting experiences and community interactions through integrating gaming with blockchain technology. We have many great speakers, mentors and workshops to help hackers with projects
