EOSIO Virtual Hackathon “Coding for Change” Begins Today

The COVID-19 outbreak has reshaped many aspects of our lives: from the way we work, live and engage, but it has also united communities around the world with one common mission: collectively seeking innovative, useful solutions to help people and companies emerge even stronger on the other side of this pandemic.

Today marks the start of our EOSIO Virtual Hackathon: “Coding for Change”: Apply blockchain technology to address the problems and/or expected societal changes related to the COVID-19 pandemic.

The challenge is open to participants who have an array of skills and come from countless backgrounds. Whether you’re getting started with your tech journey, learning more about blockchain, or want to test your skills—we invite all to join. The winner of the EOSIO Virtual Hackathon will receive US$100,000.

“Coding for Change” runs until June 1, 2020, and the winner will be announced on or around June 12, 2020. The judging panel will include CEO Brendan Blumer, CTO Dan Larimer and Head of Developer Relations Serg Metelin. External judges include founder of Ivan on Tech Academy data scientist Ivan Liljeqvist, and blockchain investment fund OnChain Capital CEO Ran Neu Ner, who is also the host and executive producer of CNBC’s “Crypto Trader” show.

Registration is open now. Details and rules of the challenge are available here. For additional updates and news on EOSIO hackathons, visit here.
