A grand stage, set for the tech enthusiasts and hackers titled the ETHBerlin, concludes in its full glory on 9th of September (while the opening ceremony was set on the 7th of this very month). The event was a part of the Berlin Blockchain Week that has been set for the duration from 5th of September to 11th of September. The event had major companies to share their latest accomplishments and present their side of the story besides an extravaganza of relevant hacking and project competition.
Held at Lohmühlenstraße, Berlin, Germany, the event has been hailed as an utter success with a number of project submissions by the contestants of the event games, the winners set to be announced on the 9th September i.e. yesterday. The event was fully packed with no more room for instant on-spot participants. The two venues for the event was set at the Factory Berlin, one being the central district of Berlin, Mitte, the other being the new Factory location in the middle of the city’s startup bowl, the Gorlitzer Park.
The event took off at the Factory’s Mitte location where a lunch was held to be followed by a cocktail reception. This concluded the first day of the event that was a mere introduction of what exactly the event is to feature afterwards and where the event, conducive to so much learning is set to commence. The second day was the Hackathon event which garnered the best hackers from around the world participating to secure the top prize. The second day venue was opted to be the Gorlitzer Park where except from the decently conducted hacking competition, workshops were arranged for the willing to participate. Eventually the last day concluded the hackathon competition before the judges attended to the presentations of the qualifying participants. The winners were set to be announced on the very day as the event took steps towards the pleasant end to be conducted again for the next time luring in the tech masses.
The most looked forward to, was the hackathon which had the most brilliant minds from around the globe participating for the ultimate titles. The eligibilty criteria were to include no more than 5 hackers a team with each of them above 18.
