We’re excited to announce that we will be teaming with TQ Tezos to host our first hackathon of 2020. Tezos was built to support a wide range of applications such as DeFi, games, and oracles. In this hackathon, contestants will build in these three categories to aid the further development of Tezos’ ecosystem. The event will run from May 25th, 2020 to June 25th, 2020.
Tezos is a public blockchain with a focus on upgradeability, security, and governance. Stakeholders vote on amendments on-chain to ensure the network has the newest technology. We’re excited about Tezos for three reasons:
- Inherent Network Upgradeability: Tezos has an in-protocol self-amendment process that automatically upgrades all nodes to the latest agreed-upon version.
- Institutional-Grade Smart Contracts: Michelson, Tezos’ domain-specific smart contract language, supports formal verification, which uses math to prove code will perform correctly.
- Continuity Focused Governance: The network is designed to have an ever-evolving governance structure to maximize the network’s longevity.
There will be $25,000 USD in prizes that will be distributed in the following pools:
DeFi — $5,000 for first place; $3,000 for second place
Games, collectibles, and in-game assets — $4,000 for first place; $2,000 for second place
Oracles and bridging real-world data to Tezos — $4,000 for first place; $2,000 for second place
Community vote (other) — $3,000 for first place; $2,000 for second place
CoinList and TQ Tezos are partnering with Baking Bad, Cryptonomic, LIGO, SmartPy, Stove Labs, Taquito, Tezos Commons, and Truffle for the event. These partners have built core Tezos developer infrastructure and tools such as Tezos smart contract languages, blockchain explorers, asset standards, etc.
They will be providing on-going developer support, and will be hosting workshops to teach developers how to use their tools. We highly encourage you to attend these workshops. Participants will receive invites to the workshops once they have registered for the hackathon.
