Getting Ready for the Blockchaingers Hackathon

Winners are well prepared. The Blockchaingers Getting Ready Meet-up, March 7th @ Deloitte HQ Rotterdam, is the final and best opportunity to prepare for the Blockchaingers Hackathon with the track sponsors, winning teams from last year and Blockchaingers Jedi and accelerators.

For a lot of teams, the hackathon already starts here! During the evening you have the ultimate chance to:

• Enage with the track sponsors as they will pitch their track to you;
• Learn what the track sponsors are looking for when rewarding your efforts at the hackathon;
• Learn how to win a blockchain hackathon from the winning teams from the previous edition;
• Learn how to use unique supportive elements to your advantage such as the Belastingdienst
(Dutch National Tax Authority) as an oracle, Legal Jedi of Loyens & Loeff and BetterCodeHub
helping you produce quality code superfast.
• Explore how the Blockchaingers Hackathon serves as a launchpad and will accelerate your
team and business.
