About Post Covid Hack

The COVID-19 crisis side-effects risk erasing decades of the progress of poverty alleviation and social impact initiatives while widening the income, gender, and digital divide. Unemployment, job precarity, and credit default rates are rising. We need to act now to accelerate the economic and social recovery process, reduce the post-COVID risks, and start building a society now which is better equipped for the “new normal”.

The Post COVID Hack hosted by Indorse and Coinsilium with our headline sponsor IOVlabs will create a bridge between hidden talents and teams and blockchain companies. The global hackathon, therefore, provides a platform to establish long term relationships and partnerships within the industry, further product and user adoption and develop incredible technologies.


The hack is split into two tracks, the Socio-economic Inclusion track, which includes use cases but not limited to such as Social ID & Reputation, Impact Investment & Crowdlending, Community Currency Issuance and Community Wallets. The second track is an Open Track, with use cases around Health, Gamification and Privacy & Security.

Partners / Stakeholders

Many partners including IOVlabs, Blockchain for Humanity, Government of Gibraltar, Malaysia Digital Economy Corporation, the National Innovation Agency of Thailand, Kucoin, Mischon de Raya, as well as a number of blockchain societies from leading universities such as University of Cambridge, University of Oxford, Imperial College of London, University College of London, King’s College London plus many more are supporting the Post COVID Hack initiative.
