A hackathon is an event where teams collaborate on a project or "hack" within a tight time limit. At CBHACK, teams of up to 4 collaborate over 24 hours to create a real product solving the existing world problem while learning more about blockchain technology and networking with like-minded participants. Industry professionals from our sponsors will share their experiences with you, and support and guide your projects from a technical perspective. The winners will be chosen by a panel of judges comprised of top industry professionals. So, attend our hackathon, assemble a team, build a groundbreaking product, learn and make new exciting connections, and finally win prizes!
The deadline is on 1st of March. However, you may still try applying after the deadline.
CBHACK is 100% free for all participants. Just apply and get your ticket!
Have no fear! Hackathons are for you to learn and in fact, it is one of the best ways to do so. On the first day of CBHACK, we will also facilitate team building so no one gets left out! We'll also have a workshop to prepare you for hacking. Even, if you can’t code you can still help with research and help to figure out the idea. And when you run into any problems or questions, mentors will be happy to help you out. By the end of hack you will have new skills, friends, and a project under your belt!
The theme of the hackathon is “application of distributed ledger technology to solve real-world problems,” with an emphasis on creating value by solving real-world problems. Also, there may be sponsored prizes with specific qualifying criteria.
Yes! As long as you make it clear what you have completed during the hackathon.
Don’t worry, we will help you! If you are traveling from outside of Cambridge, your traveling cost (up to £20) will be reimbursed.

CBHACK is a 24h event, which means that hackers should be prepared to sleep overnight at the venue. All food will be provided at event so don't worry about that! But bring everything you need to stay the night. Here is a list of what you should definitely have:
  • ID: You’ll need this to check in to the event.
  • Laptop: Desktops aren’t great travel companions.
  • Chargers (laptop, phone, etc.)
  • Headphones: With so many hackers in one building, it can get a bit loud, so bring headphones if you want to get some quiet time.
  • Sleeping bag, air mattress, and/or pillow: You will sleep overnight at Bradfield Centre, so you will need something to sleep on.
  • Reusable water bottle: If you have one, bring it and help to reduce on waste.
