  • THE CHALLENGE

    The inaugural session of the Infrachain challenge was focused on the Public Sector Blockchain developed by the Ministry for Digitalisation. The Public Sector Blockchain (PSB) was launched in 2019 to allow the Luxembourg government to develop a series of new blockchain applications for the public sector. It constitutes an interoperable data exchange & computing platform, enabling public, and private sector actors to exchange real time data and execute processes.

     

    Teams had 30 hours to develop an innovative project based on the Public Sector Blockchain and code a working demo.
