The Swiss Blockchain Hackathon 2022 (#SBHACK22) took place from September 16-18. This year, the Swiss Blockchain Hackathon partnered up with Europe's largest Hackathon - HackZurich - for the first time and made its contribution to it with two Blockchain challenges.
The SBHACK at HackZurich was carried out by a consortium consisting of the Swiss Blockchain Federation, Trust Square, CVVC, CV Labs, SUPSI, and HSLU and held as part of the Innovation Booster Blockchain Nation Switzerland. The Innovation Booster program is powered by Innosuisse.
500 hackers on site and another 1,000 participants from around the world worked on the challenges all weekend.
Eight teams had submitted innovative solutions for two particular Blockchain challenges: 'Consumer-oriented Utility Token' based on the Casper blockchain and 'NFT data and information exploration' based on the Velas blockchain.
Two teams made it to the 25 finalists out of 140 submissions. Finally, the solution of the team "Flidless" to one of the blockchain challenges won the 2nd prize of the overall HackZurich ranking.
