The first annual Blockchain Madness, a live-streamed cross-campus student trivia tournament hosted by the Blockchain Education Network, starts March 15.
Six teams of blockchain and Bitcoin all-stars from elite universities across North America will compete in this year’s tournament, fighting for the Blockchain Cup and prestige. Teams from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, New York University and the University of California-Berkeley representing the United States will battle it out against three Canadian teams from the University of Toronto, Wilfrid Laurier University and Queen’s University.
Since there are three Canadian teams versus three American teams, a bit of friendly competition has been created.
“I’m very excited for our club to represent Canada and to test my knowledge against other Bitcoin enthusiasts from across North America,” Alex Altman, one of the founders of the Laurier Bitcoin Club, told Bitcoin Magazine.
Nchinda, the executive director of the MIT Bitcoin Club, adds that “BEN is showing promise to realize the goal of a network of clubs interested in the research and development of blockchain technology in a way CCN [College Cryptocurrency Network] never did. I await the next challenge.”
Ryan Loberg, captain of the Queen’s team, says, “Thank you BEN for putting this together and getting students involved
