    IBCOL competitions 2021

    16 - 19 APR 2021

    My name is Joyce Wang, and I am the project manager of IBCOL 2021.


    In a bid to increase the competitiveness against overseas talent in the IBCOL 2021, and ultimately the employability of students, we are currently organizing the International Blockchain Olympiad, an annual global competition inviting current and recent students to propose solutions for real-world problems with blockchain technology.

    As we believe the HKBU engages students with comprehensive skills in the industry, we would like to invite Career Centre to help us promote to prospective students to join our competition.

    To join, students, of team 1 - 6 persons, will need to submit a 1 to 10-page whitepaper on or before 19th April 2021, as published on the website. Historically, we have seen many students hailing from HKBU seen great success in the IBCOL competitions around the world, so we would like to extend the deadline for students until 25th April 2021 to give them a good chance to participate and learn in a meaningful way.

    Send the whitepaper to hk@ibcol.org with the subject [HKBCOL2021_CompetitorID_Submission] and attach your whitepaper as [HKBCOL2021_CompetitorID_Whitepaper]

    The whitepaper would need to include the student's proposed used cases in the industry of their choice. The attached document is some of our rules and eligibility and evaluation criteria for a proposal (not whitepaper), but still, adding these elements to a whitepaper would be a great reference for your students.

    For more details of the competition, please visit https://2021.ibcol.org/

    Register now: https://forms.gle/3JnCJvv5binpLbuu6

    We would really appreciate your help in contributing to the success of the IBCOL 2021. Looking forward to their proposals.

    Thanks,
    Joyce Wang
    Project Coordinator
    IBCOL 2021
