[Hackathon] Crypto on the Beach 2018


Crypto on the Beach 2018

Blockchain technology has risen up to the surface, not as a panacea but as the medium to connect diverse “values” in a novel way, ultimately creating new “values”. For its pragmatic usage towards a better view of society and creation of social values, it is inevitable that we reflect on the “values” and what we need to pursue with Blockchain through constant dialogue and social experiment of Blockchain technology.

At Social Design Hackathon Crypto on the Beach, a three-day hackathon after a month of seminars and workshops, we plan to look into multifarious socio-cultural issues in which Blockchain technology could be implemented and suggest viable prototypes. Software developers, engineers, designers, artist, architects, makers, social entrepreneurs and many professionals working across different fields will gather to explore the practical applicability of Blockchain, further questioning whether Blockchain could bring out Redefinition, Redistribution and Reclaiming of “Value”.

Crypto on the Beach, is a project to seek out a new type of culture that would lead the society via an experimental combination between IT and Surfing, which has now been settled as an alternative culture. With various professionals interested in Blockchain technology, Crypto on the Beach aims to be at the intersection of IT and culture, exploring new “values” Blockchain would bring and supporting an active dialogue between the technology and culture, further generating social innovation.
