Blockchain for Peace was started because at Peace Accelerators we are part of the overwhelming social impact movement in the blockchain industry and we noticed the lack of communication and coordination amongst all the groups. We are all trying to do what we can to save the world in this historic period of time and we should

Blockchain for Peace values community, collaboration, and accelerating the development of our entire ecosystem. This is why we are changing the model of traditional hackathons at our upcoming Law & Governance hackathon in July 27-29th. Citizens of the local Bushwick and NYC community will present projects that they need and are working on in real life that need blockchain platforms built to support them, this means hackathon projects are built to solve real problems and will potentially be put into production in the near future. We are also introducing a new model where participants compete to be the first to solve code bounties submitted on Gitcoin, producing code for open-source projects like uPort.

Who should come:

  • Policy, human rights, and GP lawyers  
  • Web and blockchain developers
  • Politicians and government officials
  • UX/UI designers and illustrators

Blockchain for Peace Partners:

Peace Accelerators is a NYC based non-profit and 21st century peace movement using data and time to co-create a peaceful future for our planet as effectively as possible. With over 2,000 thought leaders, futurists, designers, and activist community members we host technology, culture, and philosophical events around the city.

Stanford Peace Innovation Lab is a global community consisting of thought leaders from the fields of behavior design, innovation, persuasive and social technologies and finance increasing positive peace via real world interventions as well as urban-scale innovations.

Bushwick Generator is a 100,000+ sq. ft. mixed-use office and hotel project that serves as a place for the diverse local community to discuss and shape the future of the neighborhood.  The concept of the Bushwick Blockchain Alliance was born out of these neighborhood discussions.

Bushwick Blockchain Alliance is the portal to integrating this fundamentally world-changing digital technology, blockchain, into the physical and social fabric of New York City.  Our intention is to foster the creation of a neighborhood that can be experimental and playful, yet intentional and educational.
