We will offer two overlapping tracks: a coding track and a presentation track.

Option 1 (Coding): The coding track includes all presentations, social activities, and participation in a weeklong coding project on a 5 - 10 person team. In the coding track, you can expect to engage with leaders in the blockchain community - faculty, architects, developers, students.

Option 2 (Presentation): The presentation track will be open to those who want to participate in camp events without joining a coding team.

Both tracks require pre-registration. Please use the registration form. Those who register will receive additional details by email before the event.

For examples of what to expect please see the summary of the 2022 Blockchain Camp.


We strongly recommend to reserve your room at the Graduate Hotel (located on the Cornell Tech campus) on Roosevelt Island due to its proximity to the event location. Please reach out to Oana Gherman (oana.gherman@cornell.edu) if you have any questions.
