What is It? Node is co-hosting a blockchain hackathon with Blockchain at Berkeley from March 18-20 at our office located in West Berkeley. There will be $20,000 in cash prizes ($10k for first place!) and speakers/judges from top VC firms like Adams Street ($50B AUM), Davoa Capital, Accel Partners, Flori Ventures, etc.   Who is Invited? Everyone! Whether your project is just an idea, prototype, or already live, we invite you to hack with us! While the primary theme is social impact via stablecoins, we welcome any project that leverages blockchain/crypto in their solution.   Resources EventBrite Sign-up  | Schedule  |  Website
