Insights

We are happy to announce that we this year, we are supporting the Future of Blockchain program by StakeZero Ventures as a Challenge Partner.

Future of Blockchain is a competition that gives teams 3 months to either launch their own blockchain-related startup or answer a technical challenge. Its target are students, researchers, and local developers in leading university cities.

This is the second edition of the program, following a very successful first one. Last year, 600 students from Oxford, Cambridge, Imperial, LSE, UCL and KCL took part in the competition. This year, the program branches out of the UK to include Berlin as well.

During the competition, participating teams can rely on online technical support by both StakeZero Ventures and the Challenge Partners. Four meetups will take place in each participating city as well (London, Berlin, Cambridge and London).

The AdEx Challenge

The challenge we are issuing to this year’s Future of Blockchain competitors is indeed related to ad tech, fighting ad fraud and generally rebuilding the lost trust in the advertising industry through blockchain technology.

We are tasking participants to come up with a solution or migration for battling click fraud. That solution must work with the AdEx protocol, of course.

The winning team will take home a prize of £1,000 with an additional £2,000 available for exceptional projects.
