Hackathon cryptocurrency & Fiscal Fraud – December 1 & 2


You’re interested in crypto-currencies and you care about topics of general interest? Participate in the next hackathon organized by the Directorate General of Public Finance (DGFiP), the Department of Economics at Ecole Polytechnique, ENSAE and The Blockchain@Polytechnique Chair on the topic of fighting tax fraud on crypto activities.

On December 1st and 2nd at ENSAE (Campus de l’X), we invite you to contribute to solve this general interest topic: what technical solutions to ensure that capital gains made on digital assets no longer escape the radar of the tax authorities? Are you ready to take up the challenge?

The prize is three prizes ranging from €500 to €3000, incubation of the winning project in a DGFiP IT department and internship opportunities.

This is also an opportunity for you to be accompanied and advised by tax and blockchain specialists who will be part of the jury.
