Cocoon Global hosts London Blockchain Hackathon

February 14, 2019

Cocoon Global kicked off the 2019 London Blockchain Week by hosting the London Blockchain Hackathon this past weekend!



For the 5th Annual London Blockchain Week, hackathon participants were looking to leverage blockchain to solve some of the global challenges concerning the health of women and children around the world. The incentive was to create technology that truly improves lives and focuses on issues such as access to healthcare, record keeping and preventable diseases.


With mobile and IoT devices becoming more commonplace, there are a number of ways to tackle the challenge of global health concerns for women and children.


Teams were encouraged to research some of the health challenges for women and children around the globe in order to better understand how a tech solution can have an immediate impact. they were also rewarded if they had one or more women on their team. While the projects could be ambitious, extra points were given for how "ready-to-market" the concepts were. The skills required weren't just coding, which brought together a diverse community of strategists, consultants and also people with health/pharma .



The Winners then presented at the 5th Annual London Blockchain Week. The winning teams further received a £1000 cash prize and the 2nd place team £500, and the winner will present at the 5th Annual London Blockchain Week.  Winners will also present in front of the audience at London Blockchain Week 2019. 


As one of the early pioneers in Blockchain events, London Blockchain Week continues to grow its strong and loyal community. Under the theme of #Learn #Connect and #Play, this year's London Blockchain Week features a main conference, evening receptions, over 50 discussions and workshops, plenty of networking opportunities and of course its annual hackathon.


Discussions covered a broad range of highly relevant topics such as“Are Security Tokens the Only Future?" and the opportunity of “Free Patents and Freedom to Operate”. London's Blockchain experts also closely examined the latest “Blockchain Global Investment Report”.
