The 3 Core Competencies:

Crypto

Gain applied experience working in this new exciting field.  Crypto is purely a software movement and doesn’t depend on a hardware buildout, in contrast to, say, the internet, which required laying cables and building cell towers. As the space develops increasingly rapidly, you will unlock first-hand access into this coveted field and delve into how crypto is being utilised to innovate in social media, gaming, entertainment, finance and more!

Blockchain
Computing

Blockchain computers are new types of computers where the unique capability is trust between users, developers, and the platform itself. You will delve into this world of trust and game-theoretic properties of the system and how innovation through blockchain will change the landscape of the web forever.

Entrepreneurship

As explained by Harvard Business School, entrepreneurship encompasses 4 things: (1) Learn experimentation, (2) Staged investment, (3) Partnerships and (4) Storytelling. A core focus of this internship is practical entrepreneurship through applying those learnings into your first-hand experience at a Y Combinator startup.
