Algorand Hack Finale Prizewinners and Summary

After over 10 weeks, the Algorand Hackathon has come to a close with a fantastic finale event featuring the 10 best projects pitching for top prizes!

This hackathon was part of our long-term programme in partnership with Algorand and will be followed up by a special Algorand-dedicated accelerator.

In our last few hackathons, projects including Euler and Reflexer (amongst others) have gone on to raise large investment rounds following the final! We hope several of this cohort go on to achieve great success as well.
