Join the one of the biggest Blockchain Hackathon in Germany!

After the great success of the past two editions, the Blockchain Hackathon is coming back to explore undiscovered terrain in which blockchain technologies might be applied.

The focus is this year on the uprising phenomena of “Coopetition” and on the connected development of Decentralized Platform Economies. Today, a few providers that are spreading vertically into every industry increasingly dominate the internet. Once a central platform reaches a critical mass, this dominance leads to quasi-monopolistic market situations. Coopetition offers a promising approach to counteract against these developments: Coopetition means in fact “cooperation” on the infrastructure layer and “competition” on the application or product layer.


Which models might arise through Blockchain-based network as alternative to digital monopoly? Which innovation networks and services can be developed in the field of Mobility, Industry and Finance? In April 2020, Blockchain enthusiasts, developers, visionaries and entrepreneurs will meet for the 3rd time in Stuttgart to elaborate concrete application scenarios.


Stuttgart offers in this respect the perfect environment for the exchange and the development of solutions towards collaborative platform economy. Many corporates based in the region are already working on such models: from the Mobility Blockchain Platform of the Daimler Blockchain Factory, going through the vision of the Robert Bosch GmbH of an Economy of Things till the Digital Asset Platform of the Börse Stuttgart. The Hackathon will explore these fields and will enrich the Blockchain Stuttgart Week capturing the eyes of the blockchain community on the development in the South-West of Germany.
