Tell Me More


What if there is a technological advancement so powerful that it transforms the very basic pillars of our society? A technology which fundamentally influences the way that our economy, governance systems and businesses function and could change our conceptual understanding of trade, ownership and trust? Well, welcome to the world of cryptocurrency.

You have heard of "the" or "a" blockchain before. You might or might not have played around it already, it doesn't really matter here. By the end of the hackathon you will have built something new, disruptive, maybe a game-changer. This hackathon is open to every idea, commercial or not, and every blockchain, Bitcoin and others. The Chainsmiths team will be there to train and mentor you, you don't need any experience in cryptocurrencies to participate. Of course, blockchain developers are also very welcome! Let's hack and have fun with some of the best talents in the field. And maybe win some prizes.

This is what will happen

and why you should be there


You will build. Most of your weekend will be spent with your team, hacking a product together. No experience needed though!


Workshops, talks, mentoring. No matter your expertise, you will learn something there.


This is not work. Plenty of time to relax, enjoy a coffee or a pint with amazing people.
