Hackathons using the iExec Stack and Dev Training Bounty Rewards
iExec recently mentored teams during three separate hackathons, where devs built using the iExec stack. This month also saw the conclusion of the second round of iExec developer training bounties. Of the submissions, successful implementations included applications such as a Bank Card Payment Validator, a Package Tracker, an Ethereum Weather Station, and the Ethereum Anemometer.
iExec mentored three successful hackathons:
Diffusion 2019 — A hackathon by Outlier Ventures,
iExec was a technical partner for the Diffusion 2019 hackathon in Berlin, held by Outlier Ventures. There was a 2000 DAI reward offered for teams delivering an application built with the iExec stack.
Decentralify — overall hackathon winners used iExec!
The winners of the overall hackathon prize built using the iExec stack. The submission was an iExec-based continuous integration app called Decentralify: it takes a GitHub repo with an app (VuePress, Hugo, Gatsby, etc), builds it on iExec, uploads the assets to IPFS and provides a simple domain via FISSION.

The Clay project implements an iExec Worker service
During the same hackathon, Clay won the 2nd iExec tech partner’s prize. It’s a neutral hardware infrastructure for the web3, a physical device (your clay), in your home or office, that runs server-side software contributing to web3 platforms. They implemented a service that runs an iExec Worker, providing idle computing power from your Clay to the iExec network.

Blockchain City Challenge
More recently, iExec participated in the organization of two more hackathons in France.
The first was a three-day hackathon called “The Blockchain City Challenge”. Here, we were an official technology partner alongside general partners from some of the biggest enterprises in Europe. iExec mentored the participating teams, guiding them in implementing blockchain. The objective was to build blockchain and IoT solutions for smart cities.
Blockchain Hackathon at The Blend Conference
iExec also sponsored and co-organised a Hackathon alongside APRIL group. The 2-day hackathon took place during The Blend Conference. iExec was also a mentor during the hackathon. Congratulations to all the teams! The first prize went to ‘Clip n Go’ a connected bike helmet that activates mobility insurance each time it is put on. Mentored by iExec, the team uses blockchain to register all collected data.
The second round of iExec Developer Training Bounties
To recap, the candidates were simply required to follow the following tutorial to implement their project idea using the iExec Decentralized Oracle framework before submitting through Github and Gitcoin.
