Women4Blockchain Nashville Hackathon and Learning Hub

New York, January 19, 2019 – We are doing our 2nd Hackathon in Nashville, TN on February 8-10. 2019. Our company is dedicated to building and empowering pioneers in the world of Blockchain technology. Our goal is to involve everyone from all industries and backgrounds in order to foster a community where Blockchain tech can develop rapidly and reach people across the world. This event would not be happening without the generous sponsorship from Lipscomb University and Kevin Clauson, Associate Professor at the University, who has been instrumental in helping with many aspects of the event which promises to be full of immersive Blockchain technology. This event was organized by our founder Anna Vladi and her W4B Team. Alongside this project, she just took the role of the COO of Everex US.  

On Day 1 we will be hosting a Learning Hub with FinTech and Healthcare panels with moderators and a group of panelists, along with a UI/UX Workshop about design thinking in Blockchain. Dan Novikov will be discussing how to make a bounty through Gitcoin and what they do while First TN Bank discusses what they are looking for in a bounty prize winner. Status will be giving an overview of their company as well and teach what their stable token does and how to use it. This will also be the day for team formations and pitches.  On Day 2 we will host our W4B Hackathon from 9 a.m. to 8 p.m. Then Day 3 will follow with hackathon teams preparing pitches, judging, then announcing the winners for each track and bounty. You can access our schedule here.

MakerDao is sponsoring a Fintech track and First TN Bank has put up a bounty using Gitcoin. Status is our communication app for the event where hackers can communicate with mentors and organizers can post schedule updates and food truck deliveries. Chris Hutchinson will also give a brief overview of the Status Embark Framework during the Learning Hub. To reach Nashville community we have partnered with local companies and organizations to help us spread the word about the event; we would like to thank Tokenize TN spearheaded by Kristin Johns, a Blockchain Attorney at Waller Law Firm who also secured us breakfast sponsorship from her law firm and who will take part in the Healthcare panel headed by Kevin Clauson.

Hashed Health is another local organization that has been helping to bring the community together and Molly Halley’s Women in Blockchain group helping us connect to local leaders in Blockchain technology and entice women hackers to come participate. Also thank you to Blockchain 901, a local Memphis Blockchain meetup run by Christine Fahey who will be coming from Memphis to work as a volunteer at the event and we hope to participate as a hacker as well!  Thank you to 21 Cryptos magazine and Carl for doing in kind advertising with us as well as Cointelegraph who offered to list our event and publish this press release. We are still looking for a company to do voting on the Blockchain so please contact us on twitter or through our email operations.office@women4blockchain.com if you want to offer your application for the hackathon. We would like to see more women participate and more diversity to be part of our event so we are issuing a special Discount code DIVERSITY which will give 70% off the ticket price, it is our deepest discount yet and we hope you will take advantage of it.
