We’re excited to announce Tierion’s sponsorship of the Consensus 2016 Hackathon. Additional sponsors include Microsoft, IBM, Deloitte and ConsenSys. Over a hundred Bitcoin and blockchain developers will compete for $5,000 and bragging rights. The event will be hosted at Microsoft’s technology center in Times Square. Tierion CEO Wayne Vaughan will return to this year’s event as a judge. His team won the 2015 hackathon by building an insurance claims processing system that used Tierion to create an audit trail for the claims process in the Bitcoin blockchain.

“Winning the Consensus 2015 Hackathon was a breakthrough moment for Tierion. I’m thrilled to be returning this year as a judge, and Tierion is proud to sponsor the event. Last year’s competition was intense. I can’t wait to see what participants create this year!” - Wayne Vaughan
