NestEgg began as a hackathon project at the Odyssey Hackathon (then called Dutch Blockchain Hackathon). The world of pensions and retirement is more exciting than you think. APG (largest dutch pension service provider) is sponsoring the Rethink Retirement track at the hackathon, available to help individuals develop blockchain and ai solutions to create alternative forms of life security or provide pension services to places unserved.

The hackathon is this April 12-14 in Groningen, Netherlands. Up to €200k in cash prizes.
