CryptoChicks and DAOStack will host Planet Wide SOS hackathon, which is to take place from May 29th to June 16th. Ethereum co-founder Vitalik Buterin and CEO Singularity.Net Ben Goertzel will speak at the event. ForkLog.com is the media partner.
The main goal of the hackathon is to develop business ideas and tech solutions to heal the world and build projects and companies for a better society after this transformative period of crisis.
“We are looking forward to a long-term collaboration with ForkLog. It is a significant step towards the unification of the Russian- and English-speaking blockchain-communities”, says Founder and CEO at CryptoChicks Elena Sinelnikova.
“We are thrilled to be working with CryptoChicks and Planet Wide SOS hackathon. Such initiatives bring together blockchain-communities around the world. We at ForkLog have this goal at our core. We believe there are no language and geographical boundaries, when people are passionate about one idea”, says BDO at ForkLog Tanya Otter.
CryptoChicks has started as a meetup group in Toronto organized by two women to help other women to navigate through Blockchain technology.
In a short period of time small meetup group grew into an international self-financed non-profit organization CryptoChicks with the hackathon events and chapters in Canada, USA, Bahamas, Pakistan, Switzerland, Dubai. CryptoChicks educated thousands of women and youth all over the world in just short 2 years. Hundreds of those women found new jobs in blockchain and AI space. Many women started their own businesses. To help them, CryptoChicks created mentorship programs, such as CryptoChicks Hatchery.
CryptoChicks are proud to be nominated for Blockchain Company of the Year Award at the Canadian FinTech and AI Awards 2018 and 2019 and Diversity Initiative of the Year at the inaugural Women in IT Awards Canada in 2019.
