Infrachain, the Luxembourg-based Blockchain community for operational Blockchain projects, has announced that team registrations are now open for the second edition of its Blockchain hackathon, the Infrachain Challenge, which will take place at the Luxembourg House of Financial Technology (LHoFT) on 5 and 6 October 2021.
The 2021 edition of the Infrachain Challenge, organised with the support of Luxembourg's Ministry for Digitalisation, will focus on the use of digital credentials and wallets in the interaction with public authorities and private companies.
The winning teams will be awarded a total of €10,500 in cash prizes. In addition, resulting concepts may possibly be turned into working applications.
In 2020, Neofacto won the Challenge, ahead of Filedgr. Both projects were later selected in the Luxembourg Blockchain Lab’s first call for projects where they are currently being further developed.
Commenting on this new edition, Fabrice Croiseaux, President of Infrachain asbl, said: “With the use of Blockchain based digital credentials and digital wallets, citizens can regain control of their personal data. They are at the heart of trusted interactions in the digital world. At Infrachain Challenge 2021, we expect the teams to develop some inspiring concepts that could later be transformed into operational solutions”.
Registration for the Infrachain Challenge is open until 15 September 2021. Further information is available at http://challenge.infrachain.com.
