“The future of blockchain holds unlimited opportunities and we’re excited to give university students a global stage to showcase their forward-thinking applications of this emerging technology and how it will change the world,” Adam Williams, co-founder of WCC, stated in the news release. “The challenge for these scholarship applicants is to present innovative and actionable concepts for blockchain that, if selected, they will present on the largest stage in blockchain, to the most notable leaders and pioneers in the space.”

WCC’s university scholarship is designed to provide future blockchain entrepreneurs with a global stage for their research, and the awards that are in store for winners reflect this mission. As noted in this morning’s update, winners will receive free entry to World Crypto Con for up to four team members, an exhibit booth space, a designated panel to share their projects and publicity on WCC’s website leading up to the conference. Winners will also have an opportunity to make connections with potential partners through the event’s series of networking sessions, educational programming and influencer meetups.

Those interested in applying can do so now by visiting the online application; submissions will be accepted until August 31. The top 10 finalist teams will be announced on September 17, with a community voting round being used to select the winners. The six winning entries are expected to be revealed on October 1.

WCC is hailed as “The Future of Bitcoin, Blockchain and Cryptocurrency Conferences” with its focus on bringing mass adoption of cryptocurrency and blockchain technology through small, medium and enterprise business innovation. In addition to top keynote speakers, non-stop education and networking opportunities, WCC will feature over 5,000 attendees, 150+ exhibitors and roughly 200,000 square feet of meeting and exhibit space.
