November 28th, DoraHacks announced Plan 2019 in P. O. D New Block Trend 2018 WISE hosted by 36Kr
On 28th November, the founder of DoraHacks, Mr. Jiannan Zhang, and his partner Mr. Hanchao Yue were invited to the 2018 WISE P. O. D. New Block Trend by Odaily x 36 Kr to attend a discussion at one of the leading conferences about Blockchain in China. After launching the official website of DoraHacks one day prior, they introduced the past and the future of the company to leading blockchain experts.
Hackers are the driving force of technology in the Blockchain industry
During his speech, Jiannan Zhang first introduced the connection between DoraHacks and the industry to the audiences. DoraHacks is one of the most active Hacker communities and organizers of hackathons in the world. “The earliest participants in the Blockchain space were hackers. Then Satoshi Nakamoto ‘hacked’ the centralized finance and monetary systems. He developed the first decentralized currency and asset. Vitalik Buterin then “hacked” the Bitcoin network.”
Hackers have not only pushed forward the emergence of the Blockchain. We believe that they will also be the driving force of technology in the industry and even the enablers of its long-term value. Therefore, we aim to provide them with the best experiences during our Hackathons, which includes organizing the best venues, food, fruits, drinks, and unlimited beer, as well as mentorship from leading companies, accesses to projects and contacts to funds. More and more hackers have found teams via DoraHacks and established start-ups.
In 2019, DoraHacks will host hackathons for thousands of people and launch the commercial space program
Jiannan Zhang also introduced a new plan for 2019 to the audience. DoraHacks hackathons have not only sparked the interest of hackers around the world but also provided plenty of blockchain solutions to ensure mainstream adoption as well. DoraHacks has attracted more and more hackers to join the blockchain industry and therefore decide to host even larger hackathons with top experts, projects, and partners in the future.
DoraHacks will organize hackathons in the U.S., India, and China for thousands of people. The estimated number of actual participants will be over 3000. Hackers from over 60 countries, will be invited by us. Apart from blockchain, we will also cooperate with tech partners in other fields and jointly organize an amazing fest for hackers to create fusions and collisions between different tech sectors. This will include tech frontiers such as autonomous cars, VR/AR, New Retail, IoT, A.I., quantum computing and more.
Why these three sites? Because the U.S has been the pioneering country in the software industry for decades, India is the new cradle of innovative technologies and China is the base camp for global business model innovation. Here, we hope to see all of our international hackers use their wildest imaginations and superb tech skills to solve real problems in various areas.
One of the ultimate dreams of all hackers is outer space
Each hackathon will be centered around important and leading technological topics. However, DoraHacks highly anticipates its commercial space themed hackathon, which will be specially presented by us, too.
DoraHacks will launch a Spacey satellite into space and send DoraHacks and its friends to the low earth orbit.
After launching the satellite, DoraHacks will officially start its serial commercial space themed hackathons. DoraHacks aims to connect their international hacker community with the newest tech to enable them to develop new ideas, plans, and products in this field.
The first Hackathon will be the “Satellite Hack”, which is co-organized with Spacey. DoraHacks will provide access to the functions of the satellite platform to the hackers, which can thus experiment with it during the hackathon.
