A quick note

The Results Are In! Thank you to everyone who participated in IBIHack, the Illinois Blockchain Initiative’s month long remote blockchain hackathon in partnership with BEN and Fulcrum (by Axiom). As Governor Bruce Rauner said, “Illinois is the state of innovation, and I am proud to see our young men and women getting involved in the Illinois Blockchain Initiative Hack. Empowering our youth is empowering the future of Illinois. These talented individuals will be faced with a lot of issues to solve as they grow, and encouraging them to get involved in shaping the future of our state and country now through innovation can teach them the power they have to influence change through creative problem solving. I am excited to see their ideas for Illinois, and I wish them good luck in this inaugural IBI Hack-a-thon!” And IBIHack participants did not disappoint. With 5 blockchain education events throughout the month of July, 107 registered participants, and 7 project submissions, IBIHack was an overwhelming success.

Thank you to all who participated, we look forward to supporting your talent with more events such as the upcoming Chicago Hyperledger Hackfest on September 21 & 22

Thank you,
The State of Illinois Blockchain Initiative, BEN, and Fulcrum (by Axiom)
