Meet the winners of the Theta Hackathon Q1 2022
We are thrilled to announce the winners of the latest Theta hackathon, each an excellent example of the kind of projects taking the Theta ecosystem to the next level. Theta hackathons are a core way Theta community developers are supported, and prior hackathons featured critical community projects such as GPool, OpenTheta, and ThetaBoard.
“We are seeing a significant increase in development interest in Theta blockchain, and we expect ongoing Theta hackathons to further incentivize new development teams to build their projects on Theta” said Theta CTO Jieyi Long. “Our team is excited to see the next generation of apps built to expand Theta’s role as the leading blockchain for the media and entertainment space”.
