Wanxiang Global Blockchain Summit Successfully Held in Shanghai

The 5th Global Blockchain Summit, organized by Wanxiang Blockchain Labs, took place on Sept 17 & 18 at W Shanghai - The Bund. Since 2015, Wanxiang Blockchain Summit has been widely recognized as one of the most influential blockchain events of the year.

The presence of vanguards and industry leaders from across the globe in Shanghai made the summit something. Hot topics such as adoption challenges, privacy, scalability, blockchain innovation and more took center stage as experts and pioneers gave voice to the new developments and innovations occurring around the globe.

This year, it was expanded to Shanghai International Blockchain Week 2019, which included two more segments: Wanxiang Blockchain Hackathon and Demo Day.

Over 120 participants joined the hackathon on the first day and 28 teams were formed, varying in member size, with themes to choose. With a specific focus of "blockchain and the automotive industry", competitors spent 26 hours creating projects from zero to one. Finally, six teams won the grand prizes offered by Wanxiang Blockchain Labs and one team won the special $10,000 prize offered by Qtum. The one winning team also went on stage the next day for Demo Day, demonstrating their project before one thousand people.

As the first chapter of Shanghai International Blockchain Week, Wanxiang Blockchain Hackathon served as an open platform where developers were able to make the best of their creativity and imagination.
