Matic Network at HackInOut — India
InOut successfully completed the 5th Edition of their Hackathon in Bengaluru, India.
Matic Network was one of the event partners and also a part of the judging panel. There were over 150+ participants from all over India chosen from approximately 4500+ applications.
There were several tracks that teams could choose, from AR to Machine Learning, to Fintech and Blockchain, and IoT.
The day kicked off by Tech Talks with leaders from various industries speaking about different technologies and opportunities and sharing knowledge. Our CPO, Anurag Arjun gave the crowd an Ethereum 101 session followed by Q&A.
Matic’s Hackathon use case: Create a DApp that allows users to pay merchants at restaurants & other places and split the bill between their friends using DAI as the medium of payment on Matic
Matic had announced a special prize for the winners of this bill splitting app.
And so the hackathon started. Out of total of 50+ teams, 15+ teams were working on blockchain ideas. Most of these teams were building applications on top of Ethereum, while some chose to work on other blockchains.
There were a multitude of ideas ranging from Trivia Quiz, Fake News Detection, Organ donation tracking, IoT payments etc.
Well, it wasn’t just hustle and bustle all over, a few good men also had fun during this event
Over 24 hours, students and professionals came up with novel ideas and showcased their solutions. Anurag was also mentoring a few teams.
The Judges then interacted with each team to understand their solutions and evaluate their submissions.
A Special mention to:
