Torus Labs
Sep 2 · 3 min read

Be a part of Torus Labs’ inaugural online hackathon and build the next big DApp for mainstream audiences to win US$10,000 worth of prizes.

This year, we became 2019 Season Partners of ETH Global, and have sponsored several Ethereum and blockchain in-person hackathons across the globe. Throughout these hackathons, we have seen many impressive projects built within the short span of a weekend by some of the brightest developers in the industry.

We want to give more developers across the world the time and resources to further develop their ideas and build a viable product for commercial use. Open to all Ethereum DApps, developers can submit existing projects or craft entirely new DApps as long as they meet the basic requirements of integrating Torus for their login process.

Torus is the first key for mainstream users, where users new to the ecosystem can create their own blockchain wallet with their Google/Gmail/G Suite account login and start interacting with the blockchain within a few seconds. Intuitive for the general audience who are used to log into iOS and Android applications with their Social Authenticators.

Our improved user flow removes the need for cumbersome mnemonics memorization and password management to bridge the gap between Web 2.0 and Web 3.0.

In the spirit of onboarding more mainstream users into the decentralised ecosystem, we hope to see projects that provide users with the utility and tangible reasons to keep coming back to the ecosystem.
