IOTA Hackathon

The blockchain tech sphere in the fall of 2017 looks totally different than in the same period of 2016. Then, many people heard about blockchain for the very first time, now there are several dedicated blockchain platforms for specific applications. In the field of Industry 4.0, beside supply chain and robotics, IoT applications provide a hotbed for highly scalable blockchains, such as IOTA, NEO, or QTUM.

For and with one of these IoT-specific blockchains, IOTA, we will organize a hackathon, a week-end full of code, co-creation and ideas.

BUILD THE FUTURE WITH US!

Today is blockchain, tomorrow is industry 4.0 and the internet of everything. Autonomous cars, sensors and intelligent factories are the future but how will they communicate and transact among one another on a worldwide scale? IOTA is a blockless ledger system which enables scalable autonomous machine to machine micro-transactions without fees. Want to get your hands dirty and take part in building the future?
