Event description


Calling all Hackers…better yet! MachoHackers!

By now, you have most likely heard one of many descriptions of what Blockchain is, how it is used and the power it holds towards the digital future. The technology provides and enables distributed autonomous marketplaces, reduces friction in business transactions, manages and secures decentralized private records from encryption to tracking the provenance of products and materials. But this is just the tip of the iceberg! It is clear that this will play a huge part of how the digital world will evolve, weaving blockchain technology into the fabric of our daily lives.

MachoChallenge Us!

- Next generation of universal crypto assets (benefits and differences from other cryptos)

- Further pushing for real-world commercial acceptance

- Flexible, upgradeable infrastructure in traditional to non-traditional usage & acceptance

- Shorter, scalable and expandable chain (how to reduce the chain?)

- Future of the Financial Sector

- Next generation of Miners

- New Consensus Algorithms from proof of work to proof of stake

We love it when you can challenge us with your digital expertise and prowess; go ahead, show us what you can do! If you are a dreamer who puts ideas into action then we want you to participate in our inaugural Hackathon, MachoHacks! Get ready, set and GO!
