SPEND A WEEKEND BUILDING YOUR BLOCKCHAIN STARTUP WITH A TEAM OF PRODUCT ENGINEERS, DESIGNERS AND DEVELOPERS

The goal of the Blockchain Challenge is to use different blockchains at every Challenge to create new innovative products that solve concrete problems. However, is one weekend enough to build a startup ?

Maybe not.

Which is why after this weekend, you will have a month to continue working on your idea and execute it. You will have the opportunity to interact with experts and benefit from the support and follow-up of the Fusion team, Terre des hommes team and Stellar experts.

The winning idea will also benefit from ulterior support.

WHO WE ARE

TERRE DES HOMMES

Terre des hommes is the leading Swiss child relief agency. Through our health, protection and emergency aid projects, we provide assistance to over three million children and their families in over 35 countries each year. Given the many ways in which children’s rights are abused or ignored, Tdh actively support social change. This means working constructively with different parties – communities, civil societies and economic, political and religious decision-makers. The strategy taken towards development and humanitarian aid aims at being always participative and considerate of local circumstances, integrating innovative approaches to allow beneficiaries to profit from technological advances as well.

Terre des Hommes’ goal is to make significant and lasting difference to the lives of children in need. All around the world, children are the first victims of wars, natural disasters and poverty. Tdh aims at protecting these young people and building brighter futures, by protecting child migrants and children at risk of child labour, promoting restorative justice, defending children’s fundamental human rights, improving child health, providing specialized medical care and humanitarian aid.

FUSION

Fusion is the premiere Swiss-Made Innovation Delivery Platform enabling world’s Frontier Tech entrepreneurs, government and corporations to innovate. Fusion does so by providing a structured framework, an extensive global community of experts and mentors & access to world class tools to practice entrepreneurial management.

Since 2015 Fusion has accelerated over 50 companies from Fintech, Insurtech, Proptech, Payment, Smart City & Digital Health and draws an extended team who has worked at equal length with internet-pioneering companies, large bluechips / industry leading enterprises and fast growing startups.

WHY STELLAR?

Stellar is an open-source, decentralized payment network with near-instant settlements, fixed-price transactions (currently costing around 0.000002€) and a built-in support for custom tokens, making it a prime infrastructure for remittances.

The system features a distributed exchange, allowing tokens to be traded on-chain against each other and the native currency, the lumen (XLM). While it does not feature a Turing-complete language, it supports simple smart contracts, making escrow accounts, crowdsales and even the Lightning Network possible.
