Winners will be announced June 1st 2018 at the BSIC Conference -

The Blockchain for Social Impact Coalition's (BSIC) Incubator has  started. Until May 21st, 93 teams and 110+ mentors in 51 countries are working on solutions in the areas of Democracy, Agriculture, Refugees and Hardware.

To drive awareness about diversity and inclusion ‘Women in Blockchain’, an independent initiative and partner of Consensys, are posting  The 'One World Award' to honor the solution that best promotes open access and equal inclusion.

 

 Description

The One World Award

This prize is dedicated to honoring BSIC Incubator solutions that best promote equal inclusion and open access. It is a separate prize organized by the Women in Blockchain group and sponsored by those who believe that we have to start rewarding efforts benefitting Diversity & Inclusion.

Based on its unique features to replace trust with audibility Blockchain solutions can help the inclusion of populations that have historically been under-served, side lined and disadvantaged resulting in less representation in society and less of a voice. 

To qualify for the prize,  teams participating in the incubator submit up to 2 pages and describe related considerations also in their final video submission.

Judges will reward efforts and innovative ideas that create a more equal and inclusive solution and capture needs of those who are traditionally under-served within the team's  project category.
