This week I’m featuring the Stellar prize winners for the Gitcoin NYBW Hackathon! After almost a month of hacking, we have crowned the top 3 projects, each won a portion of the 55,000 XLM prize pool 🎉
Pagas, the first place winner, is paywall and tolling system built using Next JS, Node, MongoDB and Stellar. It allows users to put up Stellar-based paywalls for virtual events quickly and easily. You can watch a demo of their project here.
🥈 Chicken with Pasta
In second place we have Chicken with Pasta. Chicken with Pasta’s goal is to empower merchants to accept USD payments without paying merchant services fees. They also plan to continue building beyond the hackathon, so if you would like to help reach out to bgold on Keybase! Watch a demo of their project here.
🥉 Zarclays nRemit
Last but not least is Zarclays nRemit! Zarclays nRemit is a remittance platform that allows users to send and receive money to Nigeria. Using Stellar allows it to be easy, fast, and cheap. Watch a demo of the project here.
