MIT Bitcoin Hackathon: 10 Years of Building Blocks
April 21, 2023 @ 6:00 pm – April 22, 2023 @ 12:00 am
We are excited to host the MIT Bitcoin Hackathon 2023 on the 10th anniversary of the Expo on April 21st-23rd. This is a big deal and a unique hackathon where you will have 30 hours to learn, share and, most importantly, build a remarkable project that might be one of the next building blocks for the evolution of the crypto industry. You can participate in the Hackathon IRL at MIT or online.
In the past, those who have participated in the hackathon have come out with amazing new startups, projects, and connections. Whether you have a team or you are alone, come and join our MIT community of hackers. Participants can be mentors, students, or professional hackers from all around the globe. Historically, some of our best and most successful stories are from people that are new to Bitcoin and crypto so everyone is welcome.
The Hackathon will begin April 21st @ 6:00 PM (Eastern Time, USA) and will end April 22nd @ 11:59 PM. The first day will take place at MIT’s amazing new Innovation Headquarters (iHQ). This Hackathon is a technical event so it is expected that projects are coded during the 30 hour hacking period.
The MIT Bitcoin Club members, along with our amazing mentors, alumni, and sponsors, will be there to mentor and support teams to help create great projects. Compete in one of these tracks – Bitcoin & Lightning & Taproot, Decentralized Applications – or one of the sponsored challenges that will be listed soon. You will have a chance to win a portion of our $26,000 prize pool.
