Finance Magnates is taking part in and supporting the Tel Aviv dAppathon 2018, taking place this week in Shalom Tower.
The two-day event will start on the morning of Thursday, October 18, and will end in the afternoon of the next day. Programming teams are invited to get creative and design a truly useful blockchain application from scratch.
There is $5,000 to be won by three winning teams. The first prize is $3,000 and the chance to pitch an idea to Joseph Lubin, co-founder of Ethereum and head of ConsenSys (that also held an event in Tel Aviv earlier this year).
The event also has a packed schedule of workshops and keynote speeches from industry experts.
What Will the Competitors be Designing Exactly?
The applications can be in any subject – games, UI/UX, market prediction, decentralized autonomous organizations, supply chains, smart contracts, financial technology – whatever you can think of.
The competition judges are Omri Cohen of Bancor, Or Wilder of Consensys, and David Yakira from Orbs.
The event is hosted by DappWorks, a blockchain research company which focuses on decentralized applications for the internet-of-things.
It has organized the event in conjunction with Eden Block, a Ramat Gan-based research, investment, and incubation project dedicated to enriching the DLT industry.
