An event for creating and sharing world-changing blockchain apps and crypto projects

It is increasingly difficult to have a conversation on disruptive technology without referencing blockchain and the cryptocurrency industry. The WCEF Crypto Hackathon encourages development of this field by providing talented crypto and blockchain app developers with the opportunity and platform to share their ideas with top entrepreneurs, industry experts, and members of the greater tech community. 

 

Backed by a $~200,000 prize from Propy (50k Propy tokens), this Hackathon offers a unique opportunity for hackers to pursue their wildest ideas to the fullest, developing the next generation of ideas that will transform the crypto industry.

 

 

 

Who Should Attend: Any developer, designer, architect, or even project manager who wishes to roll up their sleeves and dive into an immersive project making use of blockchain and/or cryptocurrency technologies. Come by yourself, come with a friend, or a whole team. We'll work to match you up with teammates to build something to show off to the judges on Sunday. Place in the top 3 teams and you'll get to present at the WCEF Conference before the opening keynote on Tuesday in front of 1000+ attendees.

 

If you want to help mentor, feel free to swing by the venue for several hours and sign up for a mentor ticket.

 

What is the WCEF?

 

The World Crypto Economic Forum in the San Francisco Bay Area is an event centered around supporting the current blockchain community and creating a global network of entrepreneurs and developers in today’s fast-evolving blockchain economy.

Sponsors

 

 

Propy - 50K Propy tokens - Title Sponsor

 

Propy aims to solve the problems facing international real estate transactions by creating a novel unified property store and asset transfer platform for the global real estate industry. Initially the Propy Registry will mirror official land registry records in which transfers of real estate are recorded. Ultimately, however, Propy’s vision is that jurisdictions will adopt the Propy Registry as their official ledger of record such that the transfer of a property on the Propy Registry constitutes the legal transfer of the property and the legal registration of that transfer.
