VIRTUAL HACKATHON

The CoinGeek Conference comes to North America for the first time, May 29-30, 2019 at the Carlu in Toronto, Canada. 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, May 29 is “Developers Day” workshop for Bitcoin application developers (spaces are limited, to get a ticket please apply here). May 30 is the main conference, registration open to the public, showcasing the high-caliber speeches and panel discussions which are the hallmark of CoinGeek events. Special features include finalist presentations for the Bitcoin Association’s first BSV Hackathon, and a special intimate conversation with nChain Chief Scientist Dr. Craig S. Wright about the beginnings of Bitcoin. And as always, we end with a famed CoinGeek after-party! Join us on the journey to fulfill the Satoshi Vision set out a decade ago, for Bitcoin to become the world’s new money and global enterprise blockchain.

Come code on Bitcoin SV in the 1st ever BSV Virtual Hackathon!

It’s the Bitcoin Association’s first ever Bitcoin SV hackathon, run by nChain and sponsored by CoinGeek.

Bitcoin SV is rebirth of the original Bitcoin, so join us to finally unleash the true power of Bitcoin’s original design, protocol and Satoshi Vision.

We want to encourage developers around the world to build on BSV. So, enter the BSV hackathon. It’s a lead up to the CoinGeek Toronto conference in May. This hackathon will be virtual – taking place online on May 4 and 5, 2019 (with participation periods to be announced based upon GMT time zone). That means you can participate from anywhere in the world!

After the virtual hackathon, three finalists will be chosen. A representative from each will be flown to Toronto, Canada to present their solution on May 30, 2019 at the CoinGeek conference. A panel of judges, including the live audience, will select the winner.

There is an impressive prize pool of 400 BSV coins:

And all finalists get the opportunity to be considered for investment funds. So, come code with us on BSV to create the world’s new money and global enterprise blockchain.

That’s Bitcoin: Satoshi Vision.

What is a “Hackathon?”

Traditionally a hackathon is an event where participants from a variety of backgrounds team up to “hack” together creative solutions and program unique applications. This is a creative event where teams can show off the projects they built and compete for prizes. When being hosted at a physical location they usually last one or two days, whereas virtual Hackathons can range in the time allotted.
