Now we can round off this year's edition of Blockchain North and Arctic Chain Hackathon. It became three interesting and creative days with many new meetings and exciting conversations.
The week started with Arctic Chain Hackathon 7 to 9 May, in connection with the conference Blockchain North (Norrland's largest blockchain conference!) May 9.
Blockchain North, who took place in Studio Nord at the Park, gave us the opportunity to listen to rewarding lectures about the blockchain, including the main lecturer Sofie Blakstad from Hiveonline. The day gave rise to meetings and conversations between people, which contributed to new, interesting perspectives and approaches.
During Arctic Chain Hackathon iGrant.io presented this year's case, with the theme Democracy 4.0. The interesting case was about children's rights to online privacy, consent linked to school's image publishing and it was linked to the platform iGrant.io. The contestants participated in the respective categories of programming and business concept. We say big congratulations to the team Frozen Smiths, who took home the prize in the programming competition and congratulations to Just.ID who won the business idea competition.
- The system we developed will save a lot of time and facilitate the work for the teachers to systematize the work, while also protecting the children's integrity further, says Johan Grönberg, who was one of the members of Frozen Smiths.
In the jury for best programming solution was Andreas Wåhlström, business developer IT at the education administration, Bodens municipality.
- The case that iGrant.io came up with is perfectly right in time and fills a big hole in our businesses. I am convinced that the solution would save time but also create security for the employees when handling images and other documentation.
Warm thanks to all participants, lecturers, jury members and others who contributed in other ways to three fun and exciting days! An extra big thank you to our co-organizers iGrant.io and Luleå University of Technology!
