About IBCOL 2021

The International Blockchain Olympiad (IBCOL) 2021 is a platform for university students to solve real-world problems with decentralized applications, built with blockchain or distributed ledger technology.

In a global hunt for blockchain talent, International Blockchain Olympiad combines the practicality of case competitions with the open-ended problem-solving culture of hack-a-thons, where participants first write a whitepaper to describe a complete solution and are required to create a poster board and pitch a presentation. This competition structure rewards the students who can critically think about a problem and coherently explain the solution to others.

Who Should Attend?

The policy makers, teachers, industry executives, and students will benefit from participating in International Blockchain Olympiad 2021 and attending exhibits, seminars, keynotes, and networking events besides observing the actual competitions. This will foster a genuine interest in blockchain technology and make everyone ready for this important pillar of the Fourth Industrial Revolution (4IR).
