Global Blockchain Challenge

More than a hackathon!

If you like solving problems in a cross-disciplinary way, then you may want to come to Málaga on November 11 and take part in the Global Blockchain Challenge.
This is an open innovation initiative to bring together developers, regulators and business people to address challenges around the UN’s 17 Sustainable Development Goals and deliver impactful, cross-disciplinary blockchain-based solutions.

Teams of three people will be formed with three different profiles (tech, business and legal) and with backgrounds coming from private sector, academia and entrepreneurship.

Thanks to this cross-disciplinary approach, we hope and expect to have exciting, innovative but also well thought-through and practical solutions that take into account a broad range of conditions and viewpoints, and that are implementable in the short- to mid-term.

The competition will run 10 hours in the Trade Fair and Congress Center of Malaga.

Members of the EU Parliament along with experts and personalities from the industry and international institutions are invited as mentors and members of the award jury.

The winners will be recognised with the StartUp Europe-World Blockchain Awards on the evening of 11 November at a VIP Dinner.
