// WHAT IS WHACKED BLOCKS ABOUT?
Come and hack with leading blockchain people. Whacked Blocks is an opportunity to meet other inspiring people from blockchain space.
Blockchains and cryptoeconomy can help us reimagine what one can do simply building better tooling for storing and moving value.
So come and experiment with us with programmatic money, connect blockchains with the real world and experiment with Ethereum.
// THE TOPICS OF '18 WHACKED BLOCKS
This year we will focus on oracles, exchanges and tokens.
Oracles are about the connection to the real world (the world outside of blockchain). We need to provide blockchain information for the consumers/companies, etc. This aspect is critical for successful integration of blockchain. Provides blockchain information to/for the outside.
Exchanges are about how we exchange value on blockchain. It’s not only about crypto value for crypto value, but how we can exchange crypto assets for real-world assets.
Tokens are many things. Tokens (ERC 20- the typical standard that defines a few functions for the token: you can check the balance and anyone can transfer their tokens to anyone else) are how we store value on blockchain. They are assets.
// WHO ARE WE LOOKING FOR
50 hackers: devs, researchers, folks with background in economic/physics/mechanism design or other related fields.
We want to bring together big ideas and ambitious people trying to bring them to life. If you aren’t scared of tomorrow join us on Whacked Blocks hackathon!
Join us alone and find your team, or come and bring the whole team with you.
