The two-day event will start in the morning of Thursday, October 18, and will end in the afternoon of the next day. Programming teams are invited to get creative, and design a truly useful blockchain application from scratch.

There is $5,000 to be won by three winning teams. The first prize is $3,000 and the chance to pitch an idea to Joseph Lubin, co-founder of Ethereum and head of ConsenSys (that also held an event in Tel Aviv earlier this year).

The event also has a packed schedule of workshops and keynote speeches from industry experts.

What will the competitors be designing exactly?

The applications can be in any subject – games, UI/UX, market prediction, decentralised autonomous organisations, supply chains, smart contracts, financial technology – whatever you can think of.

The competition judges are Omri Cohen of Bancor, and Or Wilder of Consensys.
