It’s been about two months since the world’s biggest Blockchain Hackathon was held in the Big Building. But all the ideas, hard work and efforts weren’t limited to that single weekend. Behind the scenes, the track winners of the hackathon are still working hard on their prototypes and concepts to improve society with the help of blockchain innovation. On Tuesday, May 2, the first post-hackathon meetup took place in the Big Building, with the teams presenting their work so far.
“Worst audience ever!” That’s how Groningen’s newly appointed Chief Digital Officer and Big Building Head Honcho Nick Stevens jokingly characterizes the applause he receives as he walks up on stage to kick off the Dutch Blockchain Hackathon. It’s exactly 1 pm, and the biggest blockchain hackathon in the world runs on a tight schedule, because there’s plenty of work to be done in the span of just one short weekend.
From February 10 to 12, the largest physical blockchain hackathon in the world will take place in the Big Building in Groningen. For a whole weekend, more than 45 teams will work on new and innovative ways to improve society with blockchain based solutions.
