Event description


Hello, fellow hackers!

The Blockchain Society together with Telekom Innovation Laboratories (T- Labs) & T-Systems Spain presents a 32-hour Mobility & Blockchain Hackathon and Learnathon to learn and develop blockchain solutions.

This is the third T-Labs Hack Session, with the first one taking place in Seattle and the second one in Berlin, this one is happening in Barcelona, Spain!

What is the #T-LabsHACK you may ask? Well, with the increasing popularity of blockchain technology
in the industry today, there comes a desire to always be ahead of the curve; with this event, we will
bring you up to speed on some of the hottest tech to hit the blockchain space, which you can then
use directly in your Hackathon projects to win great prizes!

The hackathon will focus on blockchain and mobility, and how DLT will transform how we view transportation

The hackathon Cash prizes may be paid in Cryptocurrency (Bitcoin or Ethereum), or another cash equivalent. (e.g. Amazon Gift Certificates).

A Learnathon will also be included with a workshop that will introduce hashstaX. To get some

The hackathon will be held at Valkiria, Carrer de Pujades, 126, 08005 Barcelona, Spain.

event. This amount can be refunded on request once you are at the event.

We suggest teams of no more than 4-5 individuals. You can organize teams prior to the event, and
we will be helping teams coordinate team formation on the day of.


We know some rules are meant to be broken, but you should probably (definitely) stick by these

1. Fresh Code - We all start coding at the same time. It’s cool to work on designs beforehand, digital
mockups, open source frameworks, and anything else available to everyone, but keep things within
fair limits.

2. Code Review - Winning teams may be subject to a code-review at some point following the event
or immediately before winning. This is to ensure that all code used is in fact fresh.

3. Ownership and IP - You own your IP and whatever you create. Simple as that.

4. Team Size - No more than five people.

5. Submissions - You’ll receive an email with instructions on how to do just that. More information
will be given at the event.

6. Demos - You’ll demo the functionality of your project and talk through your idea. You’ll receive an
email with instructions on how to do just that, more information will be given at the event.

The Hackathon projects will be judged based on the following criteria:
 Technical Deployment - 25%
 Consumer Centric - 25%
 Usefulness - 25%
 Innovation - 25%
