Blockgeeks hosting $25,000 blockchain hackathon with Vitalik

Blockgeeks Lab, an online education platform for blockchain technology, announced its Blockchain Hackathon where developers can win up to $25,000 in cash prizes.

The hackathon will also feature a speech from Vitalik Buterin, inventor of the world’s 2nd largest and fastest growing public blockchain, ethereum.

On April 22 and 23 at MaRS in Toronto, developers will work in teams for over 38 hours to create a blockchain idea from scratch.

Blockgeeks Lab will also be distributing additional prizes throughout the event.

“Toronto is becoming a hotbed for cryptocurrencies and blockchain innovation. We want to bring developer talent together with the goal of Toronto becoming a global leader in the blockchain industry,” said Dmitry Buterin, founding partner of Blockgeeks Lab.

Father-and-son blockchain duo Dmitry and Vitalik are coming together with industry experts for a speaker event on April 21 to discuss blockchain’s potential impact on several industries.

“We think it’s time more Canadians know about blockchain and the story of ethereum, which was created by my son Vitalik, right here in Toronto.”
