International Blockchain Congress (IBC) media on Tuesday announced the launch of IBC Continuum Web 3.0 Hackfest Challenge for professionals and students across India at T-Hub, Hyderabad.

Jayesh Ranjan, Principal Secretary, ITE&S, Government of Telangana, inaugurated the event in the presence of Shrikant Sinha, CEO, TASK, Srinivas Rao Mahankali, CEO T-Hub and Abhishek Pitti, Founder & CEO, IBC Media.

A joint organising team, comprising various state governments, government agencies, industry participants and IBC Media, also announced the second edition of the IBC 2.0 being supported by Polkadot, who is the headline sponsor for the IBC’s agenda.

The theme for this year’s conference is IBC 2022-23 CONTINUUM. While Hyderabad had the distinction to host India’s first-ever, and Asia’s largest conference on blockchain, by IBC in 2018, the second edition, IBC 2022-23 CONTINUUM, with internationally acclaimed speakers, informative and engaging sessions, networking opportunities with industry leaders and government think-tanks, will continue to build on the new vistas that IBC 2018 opened for developer and student communities across India.

One of the pioneering initiatives of IBC 2022-23 is the IBC Education & Certification Programme (IBC Tech Voyage) exclusively designed to migrate the engineering student community form Web 2.0 competencies to sought-after Web 3.0 industry-ready developers.

The programme has a holistic, full cycle agenda which includes orientation and education by top blockchain and Web 3.0 experts followed by training, brainstorming sessions, speed building with the guidance of top line mentors culminating in Demo Day and declaration of winners. To this end, IBC is organising Alt Hack, which are on-ground Hack Fests in 3 cities in India. There is a substantial prize money, upward to Rs 1 crore, on offer.

The first of these series – the IBC HackFest Hyderabad is slated to kick off on November 22 at the Tech Mahindra followed by an intense 8-day hackathon which has training, brainstorming and mentor-led speed building sessions culminating in the Demo Day. IBC hackathon will also offer participants custom-made courses designed by international Web 3.0 companies resulting in direct recruitment.
