Blockchain technology has grown into an integral part of the Internet evolution. At its most basic level, blockchain is a distributed-ledger of records that is publicly verifiable. But this technology has the power to eliminate the need for -transaction intermediaries such as banks. By providing a completely secure way to conduct e-commerce, blockchain technology is an innovative platform fueling the growth of global economies. We will have panel discussions on blockchain implications ranging from finance to IoT to civic engagement.
Lincoln Network’s hackathon is centered on ways to integrate blockchain in both public and private sectors. We invite teams and individuals to participate in this thrilling weekend to channel their expertise into producing innovative blockchain applications. This hackathon will allow promising young techies to work together while applying blockchain towards some of the world’s biggest problems.
