About The Hackathon

To help distributed network enthusiasts and practitioners get started in the space, and in turn, capture the next wave of opportunities, we are hosting India Dapp Fest 2019, a 5-day high-quality initiative with the first 3 days being a combination of hackathon and workshops. At the hackathon, we are looking at some world class teams participate in taking the workshops, setting the problem statements for crowdsourced innovation and then, mentoring the teams to build impactful solutions. They will also be conducting workshops alongside to help with upskilling of our participants on different blockchain platforms and understanding the best choice for their envisioned use case. By having a multi-track hackathon with a diverse range of topics from enterprise-grade blockchains to public networks and decentralised market places, we want to ensure innovative solutions in this hackathon for all fields.
