Event description
This is the first GBEC hackathon which is comprised of a series of activities including training, workshop and 24-hour hackathon.

About this Event

An Eventful Weekend

Chaintope is collaborating with MDEC to hold its first ever GBEC (Go Blockchain Engineering Community) hackathon which affords learning opportunities for the talents in Malaysia through their showcase of knowledge, talents, and skills in a series of activities including training, workshop and 24-hour hackathon spanning across a weekend. We are looking forward to gather around 100 participants from students, professionals, startups, to corporate to not only participate in the event, but also become part of our open community GBEC which welcomes talents from every open-source blockchain platform.

Community Goals

The goals of GBEC are to expand blockchain technologies and increase the number of blockchain engineers in ASEAN countries by providing valuable resources and educational contents to its members which can be contributed by the community itself. GBEC was founded by Chaintope and we plan to invite more top blockchain engineers to join and drive the community to its greatest synergy.
