SMART DUBAI BLOCKCHAIN CHALLENGE
Back for the 3rd year!
The contest was conceived to find the most promising blockchain solutions from the private sector that can assist in the implementation of the Dubai Blockchain Strategy. Announced in October 2016 by SDO and the Dubai Future Foundation, the strategy has the objective of making Dubai government paperwork transactions redundant by ensuring that blockchain is adopted across all its applicable services.
In 2018 saw 200 applicants from 85 cities across 44 countries all down to 17 finalists. Back for a third year in 2019, the Blockchain Challenge will be bigger and better than ever!
