On April 5-8, the second edition of the largest blockchain hackathon on the planet took place in Groningen, The Netherlands. In this after movie we present the results.

Global Digital Identity
Future of Pensions
Digital Nation’s Infrastructure
Public Safety and Security
Machine to Machine Economy
The hackathon is part of the DutchChain open innovation program: Blockchaingers.
Launch Pad for Ambitious Blockchain Pioneers
“Our hackathon turns the best of what the Netherlands has to offer into the perfect launch pad for blockchain pioneers with the ambition to make an intercontinental impact,” explains Rutger van Zuidam, founder and CEO of DutchChain, the company organizing the Blockchaingers innovation program. “For example, where on earth do you have the opportunity to build on top of the most advanced pension system to unlock its social and economic benefits for the rest of the world? Where do you have the full support of a national government and its regulators to explore the uncharted territory of blockchain technology? Where can you work with international corporates and all their resources to explore the future applications of blockchain? By leveraging the world-class business and governmental infrastructure of the Netherlands and unlocking its potential for international corporates, blockchain companies and startup teams, the Blockchaingers create a scalable international blockchain venture movement.
