Objective of Competition

Blockchain – Solving for the Future.

Problem statement

Blockchain technology is an advanced database mechanism that allows transparent information sharing within a business network. A blockchain database stores data in blocks that are linked together in a chain. The data is chronologically consistent because you cannot delete or modify the chain without consensus from the network. As a result, you can use blockchain technology to create an unalterable or immutable ledger for various use-cases.

Traditionally, blockchain has a tied connotation to cryptocurrencies and hence is seen to be limited beyond such use-cases. The hackathon aims to correct this perception by inviting teams to identify blockchain use-cases across a span of real-world issues. The teams may marry other technologies, i.e. Artificial Intelligence (AI), Virtual/Augmented Reality (VR/AR), Internet of Things (IoT), Cloud/Edge Computing, Post-Quantum technologies, Low/No-Code and more to provide innovative solutions.


For this hackathon, teams are to propose innovative and creative blockchain solutions or tools to address existing or identified real-world issues or use-cases. There is no limitation on which blockchain or technology stack to develop or deploy on. The aim of the Singapore Blockchain Innovation Challenge 2023 is to unleash one’s innovation and creativity so go crazy with the ideas!!!

What is the hackathon theme?

The theme for the Singapore Blockchain Innovation Challenge 2023 is Blockchain – Solving for the Future. We require projects to develop solutions using blockchain technologies to address real-world use-cases.

This event is organised by the Singapore Blockchain Innovation Programme which is a collaborative and nationwide technical community hosted at the National University of Singapore. Visit us at to find out more!

Yes, there are no restrictions except that participants under the Enthusiast track should only use platforms, blockchains, APIs, libraries or software development kits that are available and authorized for public use.

Yes, you can start preliminary work on your hack. But to be fair to other participants, most of your hack’s source code must be written during the hackathon period.

To be eligible to register for the Corporate track, an ACRA registration number is required or the team must have the intention to register their solution as a viable service / product. The judging criteria, rules and prizes for both tracks are different. The judging criteria would be stricter for Corporate track but participating companies are allowed to use their own private APIs and can stand to win 1 year free SBIP membership.

We have mentors who may be able to help your team and we will also organise workshops on key topics as well. Head to our Discord server to ask for help.


I don’t have a team. Can my project for the hackathon be done solo?

No, project teams should have a minimum of two members.

We have designated a Discord server for communication purposes amongst our hackathon participants. Feel free to find your team members here.

Only the team leader needs to be a resident in Singapore. If you are an international participant, make sure to join a team with a leader who is a resident in Singapore.

Yes, but we would require you to fill up and submit a parental consent form for registration.

Registration deadline is by 4 September 2023.

No, hackathon projects has non-technical aspects too so everyone is welcome to join. In addition, you can take this hackathon as a learning opportunity to get hands-on experience with blockchain.

Yes, we welcome attendees to join us on 4 August 2023 and 15 September 2023 for the events.

Participating in the hackathon is free. Attending the events are also free.

Hackathon Workflow

What does my team need to include in the proposal?

It needs to give us an overview of what your team wants to build for the hackathon. A writeup would do along with a link to your source code in GitHub. Corporate Track participants need to provide a business plan to articulate the commercial viability of their service / product. Teams need to be physically present for the project presentation day if shortlisted and will need to prepare a presentation of 20 minutes of their proposal.

To qualify for certificate of participation, your team needs to submit your project for the selection round by 4 September 2023.

Both tracks are required to submit a writeup and a git repository link. The git repository should have a README for setup and other notes / instructions. For Enthusiast track, the git repository must be public whereas in Corporate track, git repository links can be private.

The judges will vet through submissions and shortlist teams for the Finale Round.

Project submissions will be via our Discord server.
