CoWork Oasis Team Wins 1st place at RESET 2017 Hackathon

As part of Global Entrepreneurship Week 2017, a binational technology conference known as RESET was held in the local Juarez/El Paso area across two days, Wed Nov 17 – Thu Nov 18, 2017.

A team comprised of 3 CoWork Oasis members, Byrl Hunt Burdick IV, Eddie Herrera, Ivan Huerta participated in RESET’s first Security-a-thon, focusing on a solution that utilized a combination of Ethereum Blockchain and beacon technology to help eliminate voter fraud. This is the first time security was a topic for the hackathon, and it was due to the SecurityNextGen Initiative.

The winners received a Nintendo Switch and accessories, which they have graciously donated back to CoWork Oasis to be used in the lounge area by all members. Additionally, the team has been invited to pitch again to a set of judges in Guadalajara, Mexico in 2018, in hopes of possibly obtaining startup capital to expand this beyond a fun hackathon project.

RESET was sponsored by BlackLabs, Transtelco, and TechnologyHUB Juarez.
