Blockchain’s Best And Brightest Gather At IC3 Ethereum Crypto Boot Camp

IC3’s second annual Ethereum Crypto Bootcamp ends today at Cornell University’s campus in Ithaca, New York, concluding a weeklong intensive aimed at fortifying Ethereum’s strength and community. The “Coding and Learning Experience in Blockchains and Smart Contracts” offered emerging blockchain development stars the chance to network with high-profile industry leaders while collaborating to advance some of Ethereum’s most cutting-edge projects. Notable attendees included Ethereum Inventor Vitalik Buterin, Ethereum Core Developers Alex Van De Sande, Vlad Zamfir, and Nick Johnson, as well as Cornell blockchain professors Ari Juels and Andrew Miller.

Participants were sorted into six teams tasked with solving some of the problems currently facing the Ethereum ecosystem:

In their free time, participants were able to unwind on excursions to Ithaca’s local gorges, parks, lakes, and other points of interest. Hopefully, this year’s event will produce some amazing solutions to the current set of Ethereum problems, perhaps besting last year’s Bootcamp which was hailed by Buterin as “one of the most productive hackathons [he has] ever attended!”
