Lake Trust CU Sponsors Blockchain Innovation Competition for Universities

Brighton, Mich.,– Lake Trust Credit Union – a community-based financial institution serving members across Michigan – co-sponsored the Spartan Blockchain Innovation Competition 2019 in East Lansing, Michigan, on Saturday, March 30, 2019. Supported by Michigan State University’s administration, the event brought together teams from leading academic institutions to compete in a thought-provoking blockchain pitch competition.

Lake Trust announced the credit union would double the pitch contest prize from $750.00 to $1,500.00. The top award went to Smartifi, which is a prospective solution regarding the student loan crisis, presented by Michigan State students Majeed Fardin and Parker Nolan.

Spartan Blockchain is a nonprofit blockchain advisory firm and student organization dedicated to making Michigan State University a global leader in blockchain development and innovation. In the belief that large-scale blockchain system adoption will restructure the global economy, the students seek to serve Michigan State University and the surrounding area by helping students, faculty and businesses adopt blockchain technology and cryptocurrencies.

In addition to the competition, Spartan Blockchain hosted a think tank that included sponsors, students, faculty and other attendees. The think tank was followed by a community meetup that allowed students and community members to connect and collaborate on innovative blockchain projects.
