StarkNet Paris Hack by Encode and Activate: Summary and Prizewinners 🏆

StarkNet Paris Hackers!

The StarkNet Paris Hack took place from 18th to 19th July 2022 in Paris during Eth CC week and had our hackers facing record-breaking 40 degree heat in order to complete and submit their projects.

Excitement before the kickoff

This event was an in-person StarkNet-dedicated hackathon held in Le Marais, one of the coolest areas in Paris. Our beautiful hackathon venue used to be a workshop producing parts for the Eiffel Tower so the hackers got to experience a bit of essential Parisian history.

Hackers had the chance to answer our amazing sponsors’ challenges, chill and network over the course of 2 days. (All while fueled by unlimited amounts of caffeine, snacks and ice cream!)

Our hackers had the chance to get some 1–1 support from our amazing sponsors

Overview of the Hack

The hackathon kicked off with an Opening Ceremony at noon on July 18th and finished with a noon submission deadline the following day.

The teams were hard at work over the two days of the hackathon

The final hours of the hack were some of the most intense, with most teams working hard to finish and submit.
