Food and drink are sponsored by our friends at Blockstack and Coindesk. Coindesk is hosting a hackathon this weekend. More info is attached, but it’s free to apply, and there are a bunch of really nice sponsor prizes, including $5k in prize money, free tickets to CoinDesk’s Consensus conference, and other in-kind goodies from the sponsors – not to mention face time with some impressive judges and mentors.
