We are pleased to announce that the Hellenic Blockchain Community is taking a giant leap forward and announcing the 1st Bitcoin & Blockchain Hackathon in Athens, Greece on October 17, 2015.
After a lot of thinking and while observing the ongoing crises that surround our geopolitical region, we have decided to organise an event in order to tackle the problem of Value Transfer during socioeconomic crises.
This year, we are witnessing an economic crisis escalate into a humanitarian crisis. Hundreds of thousands are fleeing the war in the Middle East in search of a better life, only to find different obstacles in Europe. Many of the countries they travel through are facing a severe economic crisis, making it difficult to transfer money or receive donations. In Greece, capital controls restrict the free movement of capital through the traditional banking system, leaving the unbanked to rely on expensive alternatives or risk carrying large amounts of cash with them through their dangerous journey.
We decided to move forward in organising an event in order to bring together people who can assist in providing solutions to fundamental problems. Our mission is to use the blockchain technology in order to assist those in need with solutions around the transfer of value during economic and geopolitical crises.
Οur community members are committed to making this very first event a success and a driving force for local and global change. Our mission is to create a series of events that will result in actionable solutions.
We look forward to seeing you at Orange Grove (Leoforos Vasileos Konstantinou 5, 10674 Athens, Greece) on Saturday October the 17th.
