How big do teams have to be?

Teams can be as small as one person. However, we advise two things: 1) you should probably team up with at least one other person. Don't worry about finding anyone now, we can pair you up at a workshop later on. 2) Unless you're entering a non-technical challenge (for instance writing a paper on the wider influence of blockchain in society or the ICONOMI asset management challenge), we highly recommend having a developer on your team?

What do I build?

Your answer to a challenge can be anything you like. It could be building something technically (like a dapp), it could be writing a white paper, it could be a presentation, it could be writing an essay. Whatever you think the best way is to answer the challenge, we want to see it.

How much commitment do I need to put in?

The winning candidates will invariably be the ones that attend the weekly workshops we put on and the office hours with your mentor. You don't have to attend all these to win, but we strongly suggest you do so.

Where is it taking place?

Oxford, Cambridge and London. There will be a panel event to launch the competition in each city. Therefore, there will be workshops in each city on a weekly basis (so 3 a week), excluding Christmas holidays?

How do I win?
