Traditionally, a hackathon is intensive, software-driven, and requires prototyping and presentations to try to solve both known and unknown problems. TechCrunch’s Hackathon will bring all that and more, starting with diversity. The blockchain-focused hackathon, with blockchain’s versatile applications and penetration into a seemingly endless number of industries, will bring people with different knowledge base and backgrounds, from game developers to supply chain software developers, from medical software developers to voting application developers.

This year, the Hong Kong Hackathon will precede the main TechCrunch 2018 Shenzhen Hackathon.

Each team has 24 hours to design and develop a proof of concept, and judging and awards come from the most innovative companies in the world.
