Hack.summit (Blockchain) is a virtual conference and hackathon where developers can learn about the latest developments of blockchain technology from world-class technical leaders and collaborate with other developers from the comfort of their living room.
According to the event organiser, at the present time there are more than 10,000 registered from over 157 countries and this only the beginning – for it is planned to break past years’ records.
Humaniq is well-known for its support of start-up developers and the Blockchain community: the Humaniq team held a ‘Global Challenge’ for start-up projects to facilitate the development of new financial inclusion solutions aimed at helping the world’s unbanked population.
About 450 participants entered projects made especially for the Humaniq platform and three winners were selected for an expedition to Kenya. This provided an opportunity to meet the people who stand to benefit from new services, in order to to test and adapt emerging business plans based on hearing what citizens there want and need.
Today Humaniq also contributes the amount of $5,000 for charity and the Hackathon Grand Prize and invites everyone to join the largest programming conference ever created and the largest historical hackathon in the world – with 30,000+ registered hackers in 2016. Proceeds will support non-profit organisations: Women who Code, Black Girls Code, freeCodeCamp, CoderDojo, Bridge Foundry, and Electronic Frontier Foundation.
