MAXathon Goes Online to Reimagine Healthcare Solutions

After postponing our in-person hackathon in Berlin later this year, we are excited to announce our first-ever MAXathon, an online hackathon from September 5 to October 3, 2020, where blockchain experts, developers, and other tech enthusiasts will reimagine blockchain for healthcare applications in response to the global challenges propagated by pandemics.

Challenge Categories

Our challenges are based on MedsLOCK, a control and communication ecosystem that provides real-time COVID-19 insights that Maxonrow is building. We have come up with five challenges, and we hope we can implement the winners of each on the platform:

  1. Contact Tracing for Social Distancing: How can we create a “contact tracing” or ”social distancing” solution that can be quickly adopted by over 60% of a country’s population?
  2. Health Status: Apart from test results, governments have no way of verifying if a patient has had COVID-19 and is virus-free. Help us build a solution that can help governments quickly retrieve verifiable data.
  3. Welfare: How do we improve the process flow between businesses and the government during a pandemic? Can we eliminate intermediaries to lower transaction costs, while providing transparency to beneficiaries of welfare programs?
  4. Social Networking: To ensure everyone’s safety, we need to maintain physical distance; how can we use blockchain technology to navigate this change?
  5. UI/UX & Data Analytics: There are many data representations of the current pandemic. How do we present a holistic multi-dimensional dashboard with unique features powered by blockchain technology?

How Can You Participate?

Participants must submit their project on the challenge platform before September 30, 2020. After all submissions have been reviewed, 20 teams will be selected to attend the Demo Day on October 3, 2020, at which time they will pitch their solution to the final jury.

The winning team of each track will be rewarded with €3,000 for a total prize of €15,000! Go to to register! Once you’re in, you can also participate in the pre-hackathon online events we have planned. Let’s do this!
