In this exciting 24 Hour Hackathon run by Accenture, let your imagination go wild as we explore anything related to blockchain. Open to all skill levels!

We are excited to host this Hackathon focusing on Blockchain. Blockchain is one of the most exciting innovations in recent times and will fundamentally change how we do things for the better. We are seeing it come to life in cryptocurrency, trading, renewable energy and digital identity to name but a few.

Over 24hours the challenge we have set for you is to build a working prototype with this technology. What you choose to do, is up to you!

 We will have a team of our experts available for you to bounce ideas off, and offer some moral support.

The hackathon will conclude with teams presenting their ideas, followed by a “cocktail”-style celebration. 

If you don’t know too much about Blockchain but it appeals to you then check out a blog Meghana one of our consultants wrote which explains it really well, or if you want something a bit more complex check this out.

If this is something that interests you, then why not get a team together and register today. Keep on scrolling down to How to Enter to register your team.
