NYC BigApps Blockchain is an open innovation challenge sponsored by NYCEDC that asks teams to design meaningful blockchain solutions that improve the efficiency, security, and transparency of public sector services in New York City.



NYC BigApps is the flagship civic innovation challenge in New York City for designers, developers, academics, entrepreneurs, and New Yorkers at large to apply their know-how to improve the Big Apple. 

This year, NYC BigApps Blockchain invited participants to collaborate with government leaders to co-design blockchain applications that solve real-world challenges facing public sector services and processes.

NYC BigApps included a series of educational workshops for both government stakeholders and the general public to learn more about blockchain and its potential applications.

We are proud to announce the winners of the 2019 NYC BigApps Blockchain Innovation Challenge!
