[Online] BUIDL Boston - A Blockchain Hackathon

As the official Boston Blockchain Week hackathon - the BUIDLBoston team proudly provides entrepreneurs, students and professionals from around the world to connect, learn, and develop new ways to address problems that will not only impact Boston, but transform the way in which the global community lives using blockchain and distributed ledger technology (DLT).

WE'RE PLANNING CHALLENGES DESIGNED TO HELP ENTREPRENEURS, STUDENTS AND PROFESSIONALS TO CONNECT, MEET AND LEARN ABOUT BUILDING REAL SOLUTIONS USING BLOCKCHAIN. WE WILL HOST SEVERAL WORKSHOPS AND PRESENTATIONS DURING BUIDL BOSTON AND SHARE IT WITH THE GLOBAL COMMUNITY.

A Blockchain Learning Experience

Our goal is to connect and provide participants with a wide range of options, tools and resources to learn and BUIDL useful applications.

Not a developer? Not a problem - different skill-sets are key to realizing this vision.

SUSTAINABLE GOALS

We believe in BUIDLing a better future, and are inspired by the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDG's) -

A blueprint to achieve a better and more sustainable future for all.
