Coinbase is excited to launch our first open innovation challenge!
The goals of this challenge are to: 1) identify innovative new uses for blockchain technology and 2) to raise awareness of blockchain’s unique capabilities.

We are interested in new ways to use blockchain technology that address critical global issues such as environmental sustainability, healthcare, education or financial inclusion. Or you may prefer to target something of personal interest. Whether your problem is big or small, global or local, we would love to hear your ideas for how to use blockchain’s unique capabilities to build a better world. Submissions must include an outline of the issue that needs to be addressed, an explanation on why blockchain technology is appropriate, and an action plan for implementation.

 

Detailed knowledge of blockchain technology is not necessary to enter this challenge.

 

Winning submissions may be considered for further development and possible implementation by Coinbase. Certain prize winners could also be offered the opportunity to work with Coinbase on their solution or attend blockchain training sessions. To this end, up to 11 competitors with the most compelling ideas will be invited to a virtual pitch session where solutions are presented directly to the Coinbase team.

 

Finalists and Additional Entries Selected by the Judges will Receive a Coinbase Innovation Challenge Non-Fungible Token!
