FAQ

HACKATHON

What is a hackathon?

Apply your technical skills to build an awesome project! Individuals who attend the workshops can apply their newly-acquired skills to create something they can call their own! Smart contracts, Websites and mobile apps are common hacks, but you can build anything! Think outside the box :)

How will BlockHack work given the virtual setup?

All the essential parts of our event remain the same! You'll still get to meet other hackers, attend amazing workshops, conference, and win prizes :) We do recommend that you have Discord and Zoom installed ahead of time as the majority of our events will be held on there!

Do I need to attend both the hackathon and the conference?

Nope, you can attend either one or both! However, only participants who participate in a track workshop during the conference or submit a project for the hackathon will be eligible for anything (swag).

I'm new to Hackathons, can I still join in?

Absolutely! We encourage folks from all walks of life to participate in BHG. All that is required is a passion for building a more decentralized and inclusive world, and a willingness to get your hands dirty by trying new approaches. We especially encourage people that come from non-technical backgrounds to bring their skills to the table; we need business-minded folk to create exciting new business models, designers to create beautiful user interfaces and experiences, and to marketers to help bring these ideas to the masses.

How will teams work? What if I don't have a team?

During our hackathon, you'll have the opportunity to create a project in a team of up to 4 people. Don't worry if you don't have a team now, we'll have team formation and ideation sessions at the beginning of the Hackathon, so there'll be plenty of time to meet new people!

Does BlockHack Global cost money?

Admission is free and includes mentors, workshops, swag, resources, and an unforgettable experience!
