The University at Buffalo is proud to host the 2020 Blockchain Buildathon, a hackathon that welcomes over 100 talented participants for a full day of hacking. Teams from all over the region joined together for hours of hands-on blockchain frenzy in order to solve local and global challenges on the spot.

Today’s most exciting use cases for blockchain technology extend far beyond payments and digital currency. New protocols that offer much more robust programming capabilities than bitcoin have ushered in the era of the “smart contract.” Expectations are sky-high for what that could mean in industries ranging from capital markets trading, digital rights management, new peer-to-peer insurance models and the internet of things.
