Toronto, Ontario, Mar 9, 2018- Toronto-based non-profit CryptoChicks and online educator BlockGeeks are pleased to invite entrepreneurs, startups, enthusiasts, investors, developers, and students of all genders to the CryptoChicks Blockchain Conference and Hackathon, April 6-8, 2018 at the MaRSDD centre in downtown Toronto.

Since being popularized by Bitcoin, encrypted accountancy ledgers or “blockchains” have taken the finance world by storm. Unmet demand for blockchain developers is high and increasing- blockchains simplify transactions and reduce costs- but, currently, in the industry men outnumber women 92-to-8.

“We believe this hackathon will provide needed exposure to female talent...connecting hackers with employers,” says CryptoChicks cofounder Natalia Ameline.

Speakers, participants, and mentors of all genders will gather alongside teams of females hacking in Business or Developer streams. Industry leaders from around the globe, including Paige Bailey of Microsoft, Amanda B. Johnson of Dash, Dr. C Mohan of IBM, 16-year-old ‘Crypto Price Tracker’ app-developer Harshita Arora and many others, will speak on blockchain matters in AI, healthcare, the developing world, small and large enterprise, investing strategies, ICOs and DAICO’s, hedge funds, fintech, venture capital, crypto economics, social welfare and industry disruption. The opening night panel will feature entrepreneurs Dmitry Buterin and Natalia Ameline, parents of Ethereum inventor Vitalik Buterin, speaking on supporting the next generation of tech pioneers.

Content tailored to blockchain entrepreneurs and startups includes starting a blockchain business, designing an effective token model, running a successful ICO, attracting investors and complying with regulations. Many employers and venture capitalists will be circulating at business pitches, the cocktail meet-and-greet, and the VIP dinner. The first-floor conference and second-floor hackathon, hosting over 100 female (cis and trans) hackers, will be connected to live video feeds. Hacked projects will be judged and awarded on the final day.

This event is made possible thanks to the generous support of sponsors BlockGeeks, Polychain Capital, RBC, Pixel Dreams, Microsoft, IBM, Nobul, RightMesh, ZCash, NeuFund and The Opinion Economy, who will present their ‘CryptoChick of the Year’ award at this event.

Act soon: early-bird ticket sales (3-day conference, including food, for $150.00) end March 15, 2018.
