The event took place in Kroon Hall’s Burke Auditorium, started on Sept. 29 and finished a day later. This was the first kind of such an event at this university — the Open Blockchain Bootcamp.

The scientific ‘get-together’ was organized by the Yale OpenLab that collaborated with the Yale Center for Business and Environment (CBEY) and Tsai CITY.

The partakers went to master-classes taught by experts, then built their own applications. At lectures, they listened to theoretical material on the open ledger technology, transaction verification. Moral aspects of Blockchain implementation that may come up in the future were also touched upon.

The event was also a great chance to socialize with Yale students and the local members of the crypto community.
