Bitcoin EmBassy & Byte - Innovation Lab present: Bitcoin Hackathon

Bitcoin EmBassy & Byte are proud to present: Bitcoin Hackathon General & 2.0 projects

The Second Israeli Bitcoin Hackathon event is a must for every Bitcoin developer.
After the success of the first Bitcoin Hackathon, we are launching a new hackathon, and this time we doubled eveything. Double the space, double the attendees, double the prizes, double the food and double the beers.

The BITCOIN Hackathon is a 48-hour coding marathon.
The purpose of the hackathon is to give developers, designers, entrepreneurs and BITCOIN-fans the chance to pitch ideas involving only BITCOIN - form teams - build a prototype of their idea, all within only 48 hours!

Join us at the edge of technology and lets bring it up to the next level. Fun, international sponsors & exposure.
