RSK, Genki Solutions and KCL Business Club are pleased to announce the first RSK Hackathon – Positive Impact on Society.


PRIZE POOL: 1 BTC (3,500$ as of writing – to be distributed amongst the winners)


Our sponsors will also offer smaller prizes which will be announced during the weekend.


The event will be held at Bush House, King’s College London, and is open to all inspired hackers who wish to participate in creating impactful blockchain applications. You must have some prior knowledge of blockchain technology to participate.  We are looking for those who are eager to learn and recommend reading up on the technology in advance of the hackathon. We expect participants to have prior knowledge of development or a strong blockchain background (if non-technical).


You can instead participate in one of our two other events happening on the same weekend:


London Design Hack


Starter Conference


At the hackathon, hackers will have the opportunity to take part in smaller events happening on Saturday, including talks from founders in the blockchain space and a smart contract workshop. 


Hackers are encouraged to use RSK’s platform for cross-blockchain operability and will have the opportunity to get hands-on guidance from RSK’s team during the weekend. However, this is not compulsory.


Pitches will take place on Sunday afternoon. The schedule will be published in the coming weeks. Snacks and drinks will be provided and there will be no overnight stay. The prizes will be announced soon.
