The 'Bitfinex Hackathon' Series
We are pleased to announce the ‘Bitfinex Hackathon’ — a global hackathon series intended to foster innovation and development within the decentralised digital asset space.
Our first location will be London, United Kingdom (July 20–22nd). We kindly invite all developers and trading enthusiasts to join us and we hope to see you there.
Featuring workshops, presentations and seminars by key blockchain developers and industry thought leaders, the Bitfinex Hackathon is an event designed around collaboration, innovation and open-source development.
With the rapid growth of the cryptocurrency space, it is of vital importance that the development activity underpinning this maintains pace, and that the spirit of open-source development remains at the forefront of the movement.
The first Bitfinex Hackathon will take place July 20–22nd in London, United Kingdom. Participation in the event is entirely free, with food, drinks and essential development resources covered by Bitfinex.
Anyone with a passion for decentralised and open-source development is free to attend. Spots are limited and applications are judged based on interest in the field and demonstrated ability to contribute or teach something unique.
We thrive on creativity and building without constraints. There are no requirements in place for your hack and you are free to prepare as you wish; however, the Bitfinex API documentation is a good place to start.
To secure your spot, visit bitfinex.com/hackathon. Please apply before July 15th, 8AM BST.
The top developers across a spectrum of categories will secure monetary prizes and long-lasting development opportunities at unique cryptocurrency projects.
The prizes are split up as outlined below:
- 1st Prize: 7,500 USD
- 2nd Prize: 3,000 USD
- 3rd Prize: 1,500 USD
In addition to the above mentioned prizes, two prizes have been offered specific to development efforts pertaining to Ethereum and EOS.
