The EOS Global Hackathon series serves Block.one’s goal of supporting a decentralized global community from the ground up. The hackathons are a first-of-its-kind event in the world of blockchain and enables hackers, developers, designers and entrepreneurs in creating a new wave of blockchain applications (DAPPS) with real-world utility using EOSIO code that secure life, liberty and property.
The EOS hackathons comprise four, two-day hackathons held throughout various locations worldwide. At each event, $144,000 is awarded and the top three prize-winners from each of the four Hackathons will compete in a Grand Finale Competition event in Cape Town, South Africa in December 2018.
