[PRESS RELEASE – Singapore, Singapore, 10th February 2022]
TRON DAO and BitTorrent Chain (BTTC) are launching the TRON Grand Hackathon 2022, registration begins on February 14th. The Hackathon is part of TRON DAO’s long-term efforts to promote the mass adoption of blockchain technology and innovative cross-chain solutions. The Hackathon’s primary goal is to empower developers to create and execute DeFi, GameFi, NFT, and Web3 projects and build a robust content and entertainment community on TRON and other blockchain platforms.
TRON DAO and BTTC are also thrilled to introduce the TRON DAO Forum where members can interact, find information, create threads, have questions answered, and participate in discussions about the crypto community in general.
Since TRON became a DAO, the mission has been to create a digital space where everybody has a say. The decentralized web is all about putting the power in the hands of the community.
“The future is not far from where decentralized storage, decentralized applications, digital assets, and cryptocurrency wallets are widespread. With the increasing use of decentralized, peer-to-peer and secure networks, blockchain is becoming the backbone of Web 3.0 – the decentralized web,” said H.E. Justin Sun, Founder of TRON.
The TRON Grand Hackathon creates opportunities for unheard talents to make their marks and accelerate the development of Web 3.0 while promoting the growth of the blockchain ecosystem at the same time.
The TRON Grand Hackathon is an exciting opportunity for entrepreneurs, developers, and designers who have always wanted to build a smart contract or blockchain-related application. Furthermore, developing on BTTC would allow one to easily convert the developed application to work on different blockchain platforms such as TRON, Ethereum, Binance Smart Chain, and many more in the near future.
All blockchain/smart contract developers, product managers, and designers are eligible to sign up for the contest. Contestants who finish developing an open-source DeFi, GameFi, NFT, or Web3 project programmed in Solidity, which will work on TRON, Ethereum, or Binance Smart Chain before the deadline, will be considered eligible participants. The contest is also open to any existing projects under development on TRON or other blockchains, as long as it meets the requirements.
There will be a permanent review panel throughout the Hackathon and a dynamic special guest panel for each season. Each track’s final review panel will consist of crypto experts, KOLs, and a public community review board, whose scores account for 30%, 30%, and 40%, respectively. Community reviewers will transparently vote on the TRON DAO Forum.
Submission of the first season of the Hackathon begins on February 14, 2022, and will end on March 7, 2022. When registering, contestants are required to specify the category of the entry project name and complete the registration form. It is advised that contestants give a detailed description of the logic and characteristics of their project in the form. Contestants are encouraged to register and submit their projects to the Forum early as interactions with community members within their forum threads will also be taken into consideration while judging the projects.
With an aggregate bounty of $500k, each season of the Hackathon will be split into four tracks, encompassing DeFi, GameFi, NFT, and Web3. This will be an ongoing funding event, commencing every three months, to promote the growth of the TRON and BTTC ecosystem.
