UW Blockchain Hacks 2021 Itinerary

Hello everyone!

UW Blockchain Hacks 2021 is almost here! The hackathon will begin tomorrow, May 15th, at 9 AM PST! We will be hosting an introductory ceremony at 8:50 AM to kick off the event! Be sure to arrive 5 minutes early, so the ceremony can start at the correct time. The ceremony will introduce the hackathon, our fabulous sponsors, our panel of judges, and our prizes, as well as introduce the rules and address any questions you may have. After the ceremony, we will stay in the room to answer questions.

Be sure to join our Discord server, where you can talk to experienced blockchain mentors in case you’re having trouble while working on your project. Here is the formal itinerary for the hackathon:
