ABOUT

Mark your calendars for the FIRST ANNUAL PDX Blockchain Summit & Hackathon.

Blockchain companies are descending on Portland to share their technologies and ideas!

Friday evening, November 9, enjoy amazing speakers as part of the DECENTRALIZING THE WORLD TOUR, by Blockstack. Speakers will be followed by dinner, blockchain company introductions, and tech talks to kick-off the event.

Pitch Your Ideas
Form A Team
BUIDL!

Join us with your ideas for twenty-four hours of deep-diving into the blockchain industry's most cutting-edge developer tools and build alongside fellow decentralized app enthusiasts. Turn existing applications into a decentralized, trust-less app, or build a new application from the ground up. No rules or set requirements in terms of what you can build, other than it needs to be a dapp. Education from experienced speakers, mentors and judges. Delicious food and drinks to keep hacking flowing. No prior blockchain experience necessary.

Judging will take place on Saturday evening. Prizes will be awarded to the top three teams.

Registration is limited to the first 150 developers!
