The Bitcoin Association Virtual Hackathon is setting the stage for developers to build new applications on the Bitcoin SV blockchain. If you’re one of the finalists selected, you get to present your application at the CoinGeek Conference in Seoul on October 2, 2019. You’ll win Bitcoin SV and potentially receive investment funds.

This hackathon will be virtual – taking place online on August 17, 2019. That means you can participate from anywhere in the world! Applications are open until August 11, midday (GMT time zone).

The CoinGeek Conference comes to Asia for the second time, October 1-2, 2019 at the Le Meridien in Seoul, South Korea. Professionals from leading blockchain and cryptocurrency start-ups, global enterprises, crypto mining, investors, and other brands are coming to learn about exciting developments for Bitcoin SV, as well as the benefits of massive on-chain scaling for miners, application developers, and enterprises. We welcome everyone interested in learning about Bitcoin SV and the Satoshi Vision, even if you also support other cryptocurrency or blockchain projects.

To kick off this two-day event, developers and miners will be the first to discover the power of BSV scaling and how Bitcoin SV positively impacts their industry. On October 2, experts in the industry will showcase how the BSV blockchain can drastically improve the way they do business. You’ll also witness presentations from the three finalists of Bitcoin Association’s Virtual Hackathon. Get treated to another intimate conversation with nChain Chief Scientist and creator of Bitcoin Dr. Craig S. Wright, and finally have fun at another legendary CoinGeek after-party!

Join us at CoinGeek Seoul and discover why Bitcoin SV is fast becoming the world’s new money and global enterprise blockchain.
