Meridian Hackathon 2020 Finalists
Thanks to all participants, and congratulations to the finalists!
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.
Four new features were added to the Stellar protocol in 2020, and contestants had to build a project on the testnet that incorporates at least one of them. They are:
- Fee bumps, which allow an account to cover another account’s transaction fees
- Sponsored reserves, which allow an account to cover lumen reserves for another account
- Claimable balances, which allow an account to create a balance of any asset, and to designate another account to claim it
- Fine-grained asset authorization, which make it easier to issue regulated assets on Stellar
Without further ado — and in no particular order — we are proud to announce the 5 finalists for the Stellar Meridian 2020 Hackathon!
