Organizations that use or are thinking of using blockchain technology often consider utilizing smart contracts to automate the processing of business transactions across the network.

Of course, to work properly in this context, these bits of logic may depend on trusted data from outside sources, including IoT. Do you have a good enterprise use case that could benefit from blockchain and the use of smart contracts?

Have some ideas on how to bring IoT into the solution while addressing problems such as trust and scale? Want to try the technology and have some fun in the process? Then this hackathon is for you!

Deploy a blockchain, build/deploy some smart contracts, create the right interfaces and integrations, and perhaps even come up with that next new business model!
