As a partner we enable Blockchaingers to organize this ecosystem and all the events, including the hackathon. This way, we support the growth of the ecosystem. All partners of this event have a strategic interest to embrace the transformative power of blockchain and the startup spirit.

Why we sponsor this event is because we want to make an impact on society. The different tracks that are a focus during this event and the pre-events tick different societal issues where blockchain can be of use.
