Blockchain pioneer platform FLETA announced that it will sponsor a hackathon, <Like Lion Hackathon 2019>, in partnership with the educational organization Like Lion.
Like Lion is a specialized in computer programming educational entity, led by Du Hee Lee, the ‘Genius Developer’. To present date, over 6,000 students from 130 universities have passed through Like Lion courses and went on to create 579 services. As the organization provides a high level of programming education to non-technical students, it has attracted strong attention with new services launched by its students.
<Like Lion Hackathon 2019> will be held from 9 August to 10 August for two days in Seoul, South Korea. It aims to foster programming education and teach coding to those who do not have any previous knowledge or experience. FLETA will support Like Lion in their educational endeavors by offering its technology and sponsoring the hackathon.
The partnership between Like Lion and FLETA is deep, as they serve in the honored position of one of FLETA’s Validators. As Validators, they contribute to FLETA’s ecosystem, helping to support the innovative multi-chain structure, solving many of the problems experienced by other blockchain platforms.
<Like Lion Hackathon 2019> is the first in a series of unique hackathon experiences. In the second half of the year, FLETA will co-host a hackathon with HeartNumber. Led by AI and Artificial Neural Network pioneer, Sangyoul Kim, HeartNumber is redefining algorithmic trading. While the current function of the HeartNumber AIs are to predict pricing in the cryptocurrency marketplaces, the true application goes far beyond simple pricing to a broad range of other topics which will make strong material for hackathon participants to build upon. One inspiring example of what is possible is currently under development as a blockchain game to simplify cryptocurrency trading.
