In partnership with Blockchain@Berkeley
The First Ethereal
Haas School of Business, UC Berkeley
Saturday October 21st, 8:30 am

Consensys is hosting its first ever Ethereal Hackathon in partnership with UC Berkeley blockchain club! This is a one-of-a-kind experience that will not only expose attendees to the potential of Ethereum but also allow for in-depth exploration as self assembled teams partner with industry professionals providing mentorship throughout the competition.
The event will be two days long to allow teams to create substantial projects. Teams will focus on designing and building a blockchain-based governance system that takes advantage of Ethereum's unique platform of identity, voting and asset transfer systems.
Hackathon attendees are in the running to win various prizes, including a once in a lifetime opportunity to present their projects at Ethereal SF on October 27. Honored guests at Ethereal SF include; Joseph Lubin, co-founder of Ethereum and founder of ConsenSys, Peter Diamandis, Bryan Johnson of OS Fund and Kernel, and numerous leaders in the Blockchain space.
Blockchains offer a tamper-resistant architecture for storing signed messages, making them useful for identity, voting, and asset transfer systems. Together, these services can be bundled to form governance systems, helping communities make decisions and take action using shared resources, all while keeping relevant information transparent to participants. Design a blockchain-based governance system that takes advantage of these affordances.
