StarkNet Paris Hack by Encode and Activate: Summary and Prizewinners 🏆
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.
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!)
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 final hours of the hack were some of the most intense, with most teams working hard to finish and submit.
The hackathon ended with 7 best projects pitching during a live pitching session, an ‘audience favorite’ voting session as well as our sponsors publicly awarding their prizewinners!
We finished off the event with some mingling and networking, all while featuring some very special beverages.
The hackathon was supported by fantastic sponsors, judges and mentors, without whose assistance and support the event would not have happened.
We had incredible mentors volunteering to advise and help hackers!
Of course, choosing the finalists and overall winners wouldn’t be possible without the support of our fantastic StarkWare judges (and their wigs!), as well as the entire StarkWare team.
