After the tremendous success of our first hackathon in Bratislava, we are excited to announce the next edition of the Blockchain Pioneers Hackathon global series, titled ‘Blockchain4Good: Shaping Smart Sustainable Cities for the Future’. And what better location to start shaping the future, than in the mesmerizing city ofBerlin, Germany, known for its beautiful architecture, history, and as the biggest blockchain hub in the world. This time, we decided to collaborate with Impact Hub, the largest world network focused on building entrepreneurial communities. The hackathon will take place over two days, fromJuly 20 to July 22.

During our first hackathon earlier this year, a “fantastic four” of young developers got together and came up with a brilliant blockchain project,Werbifi. Their vision of building a blockchain platform for selling advertisement space on public Wi-Fi landing pages (a.k.a. captive portals) beat out the competition and took home the grand prize.

Think you’ve got what it takes to be the next big winner? We are giving out another 20,000 DCT for those who can come up with a project that will knock our socks off! Besides that juicy prize, your winning team will get a chance to collaborate with DECENT and receive exclusive mentoring. Not only that, you will get the chance to compete with the hackathon winners from other cities and prove your ultimate blockchain mastery. The winners will also receive a chance to experience China’s city of Shanghai, with free accommodation, flight tickets, and admission tickets to attend the most iconic annual blockchain gathering in Asia, Shanghai International Blockchain Week.

“Future cities need radical ideas, today.” – is the slogan for our next hackathon.
