Offshift to Host Crypto’s First “Capture the Flag” on January 23rd
Offshift is pleased to announce that we will be officially hosting the crypto-asset space’s inaugural blockchain-themed Capture the Flag (CTF) hackathon event on Saturday, January 23.
The event will span a full week, during which participating teams will compete to solve more than twenty unique challenges across six categories, including:
- Server Pwn
The event is open to individual participants and teams alike, and challenges will cater to a wide spectrum of ability; some will require only an elementary skillset, while others will demand advanced proficiency.
The individual or team that captures the most flags — that is, receives the most points from completing challenges of varying difficulties — will be deemed the victor. In addition, any team that solves a challenge will be eligible to receive a portion of the $5,000 purse that is dedicated to the event.
We would like to give a special thank you to the Xatha CTF Hacking Team, whose team members are organizing and managing the event.
To participate, start here.
Offshift is a cryptographically private offshore storage & DeFi protocol on Ethereum and Polkadot. It’s the first dual-sided public/private protocol to be built entirely on a permissionless chain. It gives users the ability to convert a native ERC-20 token (XFT) into private zkAssets that are pegged to a variety of digital and real-world assets.
zkAssets provide stable-value private storage, can be staked to earn zkAsset rewards, used as a peer-to-peer private currency, and used in eCommerce and point-of-sale. Learn more by visiting the links below.
