NEO Camp: NEO Blockchain Hackathon

About

NEO Camp is a 2-day hackathon where 100 selected participants will work together to build the next generation of blockchain technology.
The focus of this hackathon is NEO, a platform designed to build scalable networks of decentralized applications.

The NEO ecosystem is much more than just a cryptocurrency. It relies on the NEP5 smart token framework, which provides a standardized workflow for application development.

The blockchain has evolved considerably since the publication of the Bitcoin whitepaper in 2008. Having started as a system for recording cryptocurrency transactions, it has become a comprehensive framework for managing data.

The applications are practically unlimited. From data science to IoT products, the blockchain is being used almost everywhere.

At Neo Camp 2018, participants will be challenged with using the NEO platform to build real-world products that solve problems for users.

New concepts will be explored. Prototypes will be developed. And everyone will benefit from working on the products of the future in a fun, collaborative environment.
