Infrachain, the Luxembourg-based Blockchain association launched under the Digital Luxembourg initiative, announces the launch of the 1st edition of the Infrachain Challenge. The Infrachain Challenge is a hackathon focused on Blockchain. It is organized by Infrachain in collaboration with EY and with the support of the Ministry for Digitalisation. The Challenge takes place at The LHoFT (Luxembourg) on 23 & 24 September.

The inaugural session of the Infrachain challenge focusses on the Public Sector Blockchain developed by the Ministry for Digitalisation. Teams will have 30 hours to develop an innovative project that will demonstrate a novel, digital and user-friendly way of how companies and citizens can interact with the government to accomplish an administrative task or to automate a cumbersome process. A total of EUR 10.500,- in cash prizes will be awarded to the best ranked teams and resulting concepts may possibly be turned into working applications.

Fabrice Croiseaux, President of Infrachain a.s.b.l., comments : “I strongly encourage companies to register a team. Besides attractive cash prizes, the Infrachain Challenge is a great opportunity to gather first-hand experience in working with the Public Sector Blockchain.”

Registration for the Infrachain Challenge is open until 4th September 2020. Further information available at: http://challenge.infrachain.com
