At the end of the camp, each student will be able to present a project describing their blockchain based business idea which will change our society and make it a freer place to live. Besides that, we plan on having a lot of fun! Get prepared for the underground excursions, shooting range, rooftop party and many more!

The blockchain community has seen a huge influx of new members over the last months of massive economic growth. Unfortunately, many of the newcomers are not well-informed investors, but rather inexperienced speculators following a trend, with no idea what the whole fuzz is really about. As blockchain investments are a risky proposition during this early phase of adoption, I will try to shed some light on the fundamentals of blockchain technology in the hopes that it will help some people to make more informed decisions.
