This is the fourth T-Labs Hackathon, with the first one taking place in Seattle, the second one in Berlin, the third one in Barcelona, and now in St. Petersburg. This event will be supported by companies like Fetch.AI, The Association of Blockchain Developers of Saint Petersburg, and many more!
What is the #WhiteNightHACK you may ask? Well, with the increasing popularity of blockchain technology in the industry today, there comes a desire to always be ahead of the curve; with this event, we will bring you up to speed on some of the hottest tech to hit the blockchain space, which you can then use directly in your Hackathon projects to win great prizes!

The hackathon will focus on blockchain and mobility, and how DLT will transform how we view transportation. The hackathon will feature the tech of Fetch.Ai which you can learn more about here.
A Learnathon will also be included with a workshop that will introduce hashstaX & Fetch.Ai. To get a peak into the work that the Blockchain team at T-Labs is doing and to learn more about haststaX check out this video.

We suggest teams of no more than 5-6 individuals. You can organize teams prior to the event, and we will be helping teams coordinate team formation on the day of the hackathon.
We know some rules are meant to be broken, but you should probably (definitely) stick by these:
1. Fresh Code - We all start coding at the same time. It’s cool to work on designs beforehand, digitalmockups, open source frameworks, and anything else available to everyone, but keep things withinfair limits.
2. Ownership and IP - You own your IP and whatever you create. Simple as that.
3. Team Size - No more than six people.
4. Submissions - You’ll receive an email with instructions on how to do just that. More informationwill be given at the event.
5. Demos - You’ll demo the functionality of your project and talk through your idea. You’ll receive anemail with instructions on how to do just that, more information will be given at the event.
