Co-hosted Ethereum Hackathon
Connectome co-sponsored Ethereum Hackathon with ConsenSys which is one of the world’s largest blockchain companies. The Hackathon aimed to solve issues of inbound tourism in Japan by using uPort of distributed ID management applications.
It was exciting for us to have 67 participants (16 teams) in the event. Also, the sponsorship and support from a top level Japanese company — a powerful blockchain startup and a main group of Ethereum was satisfying for us.
The level of participants was much higher than expected, and some teams continued to work on projects even after Hackathon, aiming for commercialization. So, it was a very rewarding event.
In the future, we aim to organize other events in collaboration with companies in Japan as well as overseas, to build up the blockchain community!
