EMURGO Academy is official sponsor of the Cardano Hackathon in Argentina. Proposal funded by Project Catalyst in Fund 8

In essence, we seek to exercise with honor the noble task of providing education to people who seek to govern their own destiny, to make their communities worthy places to inhabit, and to restore to the world the decency lost in a deliberate exchange of profit for principle. We are simply educators whose goal is to put in the hands of our students the tools that will enable them to design their own solutions to their own problems. And without fear of admitting it, over time, we have become better and better at it, around a purpose that is stronger than ourselves, a purpose that drives us to encourage, promote and support educational initiatives in line with our values and beliefs, no matter where they occur. Our mission is global.

One of these initiatives is the Cardano Hackathon in Argentina (proposal funded by Project Catalyst in Fund 8) that will take place this weekend (September 3 - 4, 2022) at the National Technological University (UTN) in the city of Buenos Aires, to which we have been invited by ADA Solar (organizer), and in which we have gladly accepted to actively participate as sponsors, along with other respected sister organizations of the Cardano ecosystem. This decision was not taken lightly: ADA Solar's strategic plan is to give back to the world the good they have received from Cardano both in the energy sector (their goal: to be Cardano's first solar power plant) and educational (they held the Cardano Summit 2021 in Buenos Aires and have a consistent track record of promoting and executing various educational days on our blockchain).

It will be two days of educational celebration that will bring together academics (including the director of the UTN; Dr. Lars Brünjes, Director of Education of IOG; Bharat Mallapur, CTO of EMURGO Academy, Robertino Martinez of IOG, the Marlowe team, among others), industry professionals, media in the region, public in general, all around the engine of innovation and creativity of any human enterprise: the students.

The location of the event is no less special: Argentina is the representative of a Latin American region that is beginning to awaken as a prominent consumer of blockchain infrastructure, as abundant in social and economic problems as in the potential to see its legacy systems rethought by the change proposed by our technology. A tour of Latin America, from south to north, makes it clear that it is not a question of how, it is a question of when. And that when is clearly taking more and more strength.

From EMURGO Academy we send to the organization and the participants of the event our best wishes, predicting from now on the success of the event. To the winners of the competition our congratulations in advance. Events of this kind contribute decisively to accelerate the understanding and awareness of innovative technologies such as Blockchain. Education has always been a bridge between the fear of the present and the hope for a better future. In the end, the winners are all of us.

Details of the event:

  • The two-day Hackathon will be from September 3 to 4, 2022.
  • The opening ceremony will be held in the Aula Magna of the National Technological University (UTN), Buenos Aires Regional Faculty (Av. Medrano 951, Buenos Aires, Argentina).

  • The total prize pool for the Hackathon is $10k:
