Decentral Hacks is a community-driven hackathon that spans over an entire week and encourages developing blockchain-centric solutions that can affect social good, especially in fields like FinTech, healthcare, and education. The event will take place from August 21 to 28, and will be conducted entirely online.
For novice or a veteran developer, a student or a master, DecentralHacks is an opportunity for them to demonstrate their skills and witness the competitive yet welcoming blockchain developer community at its best.
The hackathon offers $13,000 in prizes up for grabs, including Track Prizes for the Healthcare, Education, FinTech, and Open Innovation categories. The main prizes are awarded for hacks built for Harmony One, Elastos and Matic. There are additional special prizes as well.
The team will be hosting sessions on various blockchain and developer technologies to help you get started in the world of blockchain and cryptocurrencies as well. So whether someone is a seasoned veteran in the field or an absolute beginner, they can benefit from it.
The hackathon will be held in two phases: the ideation phase and the development phase.
The ideation phase will take on the first three days of the hackathon, where teams will have to create a presentation discussing their idea, the vision behind it, and how it could benefit society today. The development phase will take place over the remaining days, involving the actual development of the product as discussed during the ideation phase.
“Our goal with DecentralHacks is to foster an environment conducive to blockchain development and encourage more users to try their hand at it. India is a brilliant testing ground for blockchain applications, and with over 1.5 million engineers being produced in the country every year, perhaps we can leverage this revolutionary technology to improve the lives of over a billion people”, says the official announcement.
