The EOS hackathon is comprised of four, two-day hackathons held throughout various locations worldwide. At each event, $144,000 is awarded and the top three finishers will move on to the grand finale in December 2018. The location of the EOS Grand Finale will be announced Dec. 8.

San Francisco

Although the fourth location, San Francisco, has already been announced, the event venue is still unknown. Further details about the event will be released during an online information session via Zoom, Nov. 7.
