Blockchain hackathon for Swiss youth. Organized within the International Innovation Film Festival.

At the youth hackathon we want to empower and enable the next generation to cope with the digital world.

The goal is to develop a project in one day that solves a problem using blockchain or DLT technology. The project can either be a piece of code / Prototype / Mock-up OR a Pitch deck (PowerPoint, digital media of some form video or similar). There will be a list of suggestions for problems at the Hackathon, but you can decide yourself what
kind of problem you want to tackle
