Recently, the PlatON Grant Hackathon hosted by the privacy-preserving AI network PlatON has come to an end on DoraHacks’ developer platform HackerLink.

As the network’s first hackathon event since the launch of its mainnet, the PlatON Grant Hackathon represents PlatON’s first attempt to pursue its vision of gathering global developers and building an open technology ecosystem. As PlatON started the application process of the event, we have felt the great enthusiasm of community developers for technology and applications. To demonstrate their technical prowess, nearly a hundred tech teams from Asia, Europe, North America, Africa, and Oceania applied for the PlatON Grant Hackathon.

At the same time, the participating teams also received different rewards from the hackathon. The 31 participating teams from around the world submitted project applications through DoraHacks’ open source developer platform HackerLink and received a total ATP funding of $71,200, including the $17,800 ATP quadratic prize pool, the $35,600 judge prize pool, and ATP community donations of $17,800. In addition, eight outstanding projects qualified in the screening process and received votes from the judges.

The top three projects ranked by judge voting are:

First place winners (tied): Itheum, ShowMe;

Second place winners (tied): Dante, Privacy-preserving Recommender System, PlatON Studio Integrated Development Environment;

Third place winners (tied): S-world Metaverse Game, Pumo Finance, LionSwap;

The top 5 projects ranked by popularity (HackerLink community votes) are:

#5 PIX

Link: https://hackerlink.io/buidl/1123?roundProj=823

This project covers PIXAPP (for IOS and Android systems) and PC application (explorer-based plug-in wallet) and platform back-end management system. The wallet manages vNFT, including the functions available to users on the major public chains, such as vNFT asset visualization, transfers, and the display of market conditions.

vNFT adds computability to NFTs (non-homogeneous tokens). To be more specific, it introduces “quantity” as a core attribute of NFTs while maintaining their powerful and personalized description capacity. Computable NFTs can be regarded as “super NFTs” that are compatible with ERC721 and feature the advantages of both ERC20 and ERC721. The super NFT is a general-purpose non-currency protocol for digital asset description that can be extensively used for the description and manifestation of digital artworks, digital publications, digital tickets, and standardized virtual goods. It also has the potential to be an ideal protocol that manifests offline physical goods on blockchains.
