As part of this year’s Meridian, the Stellar Development Foundation is sponsoring a hackathon that challenges old hands and newcomers alike to build something showcasing at least one of Stellar’s new features.

In addition to $12,000 worth of XLM in prizes, contestants will compete for bragging rights and glory: the 5 finalists are being featured on the event website, are getting feedback from some of the top brass at SDF, and will be evaluated and voted on by the wide world of Meridian attendees.
