The Blockchain Hackathon 2018

The Ashesi D:Lab, Blockchain Society Ghana, Kumasi Hive and Devless are organizing the first Blockchain Hackathon in Ghana in partnership with the Ministry of Trade and the Association of Ghana Industries. For this challenge, the most creative and inspiring teams from all over Ghana are invited to design and pitch a blockchain-inspired solution for a supply chain platform inspired by the work of the Ministry of Trade.

The platform aims to enable buyers (large scale contractors and LSE’s) to engage suppliers (sub-contractors and SME’s) in an exchange arrangement that ensures that buyer needs are met while supplier capacity is enabled.

We asked: Why not make this a Blockchain project and here we are!!!
