Create a proof of concept app running on the blockchain and win big prizes
On 1/2/3/4/5 November SteemFest² is happening in Lisbon. As part of this event the SteemFest hackathon takes place on November 1st. We challenge you to make a proof of concept, working(!) app on (any) blockchain.
Be smart and check out the prize-sponsors below (Steem, Decent, Bitshares) and pick on or combine some of those chains to be relevant and get a change to win those cryptomonetary prizes!
Wednesday November 1st - 24 hour hack session @ Silver Room , Cowork Lisboa, LX Factory
We have reserved a dedicated hackerspace in the inspirational LX Factory (Cowork Lisboa's SilverRoom) for you where you can stay 24 hours (until 2 November 11 AM) to work on your concept. We have arranged lunch, dinner, breakfast and enough f&b to keep you happy & active. There are some couches in Cowork Lisboa so you could try to crash a bit for a nap. Additionally if you really need to sleep, check the neighbouring Dorm Hostel.

SteemFest Hackathon - Focus Chains - Prize Sponsors
Three different, graphene/chainbase based blockchains are participating as prize-sponsor partners and we challenge you to build a app running on their chains. Be smart, spread your bets and try to make apps where you utilise and combine the chains unique features into a new app.
