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.
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.
According to the EOS Hackathon San Francisco registration page:
“The EOS Global Hackathon series is a first-of-its-kind event in the world of blockchain supporting the growth of a decentralized global community. See you in San Francisco for the next hackathon and join us in building the future of decentralized applications on EOSIO.”
Tickets to participate in the hackathon are $10 and team options are available – but each member must pay individually.
The first hackathon took place in Hong Kong, June 9-10. The event welcomed more than 350 entrants and 90 teams from 17 countries. Judges included Andrew Bliss, CFO of Block.one; Winnie Liu, co-founder of EOS; and Michael Cao, co-founder of EOS.
