Hackathon & Conference „Blockchain meets Purposeful Gaming“

From August 24th – 26th 2018 the Center for Applied Game Studies at Donau University Krems is hosting its first

“Blockchain Hackathon meets Game Jam Hybrid” event.

!!! PLEASE REGISTER HERE !!!

The goal of this event is to unite the disciplines of blockchain-development and game studies in a meaningful way.
At this first event of this kind we like to introduce the “Blockchain as a service platform” Ardor with its unique “Childchain Architecture” and the brand new “lightweight contracts”. The participants of the hackathon will be split into two groups with the purpose to create a collector’s game with an educative purpose. An example would be to build a collectible card-game about the “17th century Tulip-Mania” in Amsterdam. The winning team will get a bounty powered by Jelurida.

The start of the event is organized as a conference to get in touch not only with blockchain technology, but to also learn more about games with a purpose and about the possibilities you have as young entrepreneur in this particular field.
Block on, and register for this event!

The participation to the conference & hackathon is free.

The registration will be closed on August, 21th or when the maximum number of participants is reached.
Maximum number of participants: conference: 40 | hackathon: 26
