Tunisian Universities Inspire Youth Innovation with Hedera Hackathon

ESPRIT and SUP’COM, Tunisian universities, are set to host an exciting three-day hackathon from January 26 to 28. In collaboration with Dar Blockchain and the Hashgraph Association, this event aims to boost the knowledge and use of Distributed Ledger Technology (DLT) among young participants. It signifies a significant step towards embracing Web3.

This initiative focuses on exploring decentralized finance (DeFi) and its potential to transform and make financial services more accessible for Tunisian and African communities. The organizers aim to provide participants with the necessary skills and knowledge to usher in a new era of technological innovation and financial inclusion.

Dar Blockchain Launches Hedera Hackathon

Mohamed Mnif and Jaafar Saied, co-founders of Dar Blockchain, are thrilled to announce the launch of the inaugural Hedera Hackathon at prestigious universities. They view this as a crucial move in establishing chapters at local educational institutions, offering thorough training, and building a solid understanding of DLT and blockchain.

Mnif and Saied believe that this hackathon will play a crucial role in encouraging Tunisia's youth to embrace Web3. They believe that the event will provide the necessary skills and knowledge for young people and university students in Tunisia, empowering them to contribute to the widespread adoption of Web3, not only in the MENA region but globally.

Hedera-Powered Hackathon Inspires Youth Innovation in Tunisia

This hackathon is unique by putting a spotlight on empowering the younger generation with real-world insights into decentralized finance. It's not just about coding for the sake of it, participants are diving into the transformative potential of DeFi. They're gaining hands-on experience in crafting solutions that can bring financial services to communities that need them the most.

Teams of 3 to 5 members will collaborate in the hackathon to explore and develop applications utilizing decentralized technologies. The deadline for submitting applications is January 20, 2024, creating excitement as teams get ready to showcase their innovative ideas.

Teams must have at least one certified Hedera developer as a key requirement. This ensures a high level of expertise and emphasizes the commitment to using the capabilities of the Hedera Network. This distributed ledger technology has demonstrated significant potential in fostering innovation.

Kamal Youssefi, the President of The Hashgraph Association, is excited about the collaboration. He believes that by using the Hedera Network and distributed ledger technology, we can empower future generations to create better economies, technologies, and societies. Youssefi sees this collaboration as a chance to work with forward-thinking institutions, which he describes as "future-driven universities."

This effort shows the dedication of Tunisian universities and leaders in the blockchain industry to cultivate a generation that not only comprehends but also plays a role in shaping the technological landscape. The hackathon goes beyond typical academic limits by emphasizing hands-on applications and solving real-world problems. It provides a glimpse into the future of technology education.

Empowering Youth Through Blockchain Hackathons

As hackathons begin, they open the door to a transformative journey. It's not just about learning technical skills, it's about finding a sense of purpose. The transformation isn't just happening in the lines of code, it's happening in the minds of the youth. They are gaining knowledge that will shape a future where blockchain and decentralized technologies go beyond being buzzwords and become powerful tools for positive change.
