Ever since we launched our testnet and SDK in October, we received massive positive feedback from our community. Definitely join 1,000+ users to download and try Celer app — cWallet. (The iOS version is coming very soon.) Celer is going to WDAS (World Digital Assets Summit) and the Dorahacks Hacker Arena next week to demonstrate how people can use Celer SDK and build on top of Celer SDK. WDAS will be hosted in Hyatt Regency San Francisco from December 9 to December 11. Xiaozhou Li, co-founder of Celer Network, is invited to join the panel of “Improving Scalability and Performance in Blockchain” on Dec.10 at 2:20pm. On December 11, join Celer for the Dorahacks Hacker Arena for prizes and fun!

How it works:

You are wondering: “What is a hacker arena?!” The hacker arena is unlike other traditional hackathons, instead of sleeping on the ground or at the rest area followed by back pain and headache, you can actually freshen up at your home and sleep at your own bed! Because the hacker arena only last for 8 hours! It’s a shorter version hackathon with bite sized challenges.

All challenges are completed on team bases, so don’t forget to join a team with 3–6 people to participate. Teams are welcome to do as many challenges/questions as they can within the 8-hour time period and win prizes for each challenge.

Pre-Hackathon Workshop:

Sunday, December 9: There will a pre-hackathon workshop on Sunday, Dec. 9 starting from 1:30pm. If you are participating or interested in participating the hacker arena, you can’t miss this workshop on Sunday!
