Blockchain hackaton in Esade Universtiy is a great opportunity to introduce blockchain concept on companies that are interested in creating new value propositions (if the company invest in employees education that means that he wants to keep as a big player on the market looking for opportunities). We target to management students because we are interested in those employees who define the company strategy and have a position on the company to promote new business solutions. We consider that if we target to management employees we will have a more impact on the P&L of the company as a consequence that they will launch new products or services. The goal is to have a quick gotomarket. Teaching them about Stellar since very beginning will give us an advatage about technical features that Stellar has an other blockchains doesn't have (cheaper and faster than other blockchains as Bitcoin or etherum with are the most popular in Spain). The project will rise new opportunities between the participants: even those participants who don't win the prize will can be interested in deploy the project on its market. HashingDNA will be able to do it.

Products & Services

HashingDNA hackaton will create a yearly hackaton based on Stellar technology to promote, think and setup projects based on HashingDNA solutions. This year we have a certification solution for digital files (www.hashingdna.com) or images (www.hashingproof). The goal is to find new applications for the technical solutions already developed by HashingDNA to speed to gotomarket of the technology. In other words, find different case of use.
 
The technology already developed by hashingDNA could be integrated in different backoffices/frontoffices that help companies to create differents solutions for their markets (ie. Social Corporate Responsability to increase awardness, Trazability platform, Property promotion platform, etc...)  

The idea is:
1. Promote blockchain technology and specifically Stellar features.  
2. Moving from technology (already developed by hashingDNA) to solutions (that will be developed by hackaton participants).

We just get the approval from Esade to set up a Hackaton with students from different programs. As far as we get a sponsor to cover the cost of the hackaton  we will fix a date, makea space reservation and start the promotion of the event to make sure that the event is a success.

The budget will be used to set up the hackaton during february for internationational ESADE MBA Students. To make sure that Hackaton is a succes we have a roadmap for each different stage:

 
1. PROMOTION. Promote properly the activity inside the university to cathup attention of students from different programs (MBA, PDD, International MBA, etc... ). The goal is to make sure that the best students or participants sign to participate on the Hackaton. For doing that we will print posters, make a promotional video for the intranet, participate in Esade Alumni newsletter, and create a board of expert professors that sponsor the activity.

For that we will look a facility that has a big room to host all the participants and do all the comon activities (welcome, teach about technology use, final presentations, etc... ), and small rooms with all the material that participants need to make brainstormings (blackboard, paper, pen, etc..). During the day we plan to do 2 coffe breaks (morning and afernoon) and a launch.  At the end of the day each group will submit and present to the rest of the participants an idea where blockchain technology can have a deep impact.


3. PRIZES. At the end of the day the best idea will receive a prize (money + services) to set up a company and launch this idea on to the market.

Progress so far

Proof of existence solution for any digital file, on a public blockchain ledger.

On the video you can see how we use Stellar blockchain to create a certificate of a digital file. Using a similar technology we want to develop a digital signal, email certification and scan certification based on Stellar.
