GoChain has gone global with our first ever virtual hackathon. Developers, designers, and hackers are currently collaborating to bring their ideas to life.
GoBuild kick-off message from Ivan on Tech
We invited people from around the world to participate in the GoChain Virtual Hackathon 2018 to show us how they would solve various challenges and build innovative solutions. Participants have the opportunity to showcase their product and compete amongst top teams for over $50,000 in prizes including a 1st place prize worth over $40,000 for the top hack team.
"Since GoChain is 100% Ethereum backwards-compatible, 95% of blockchain developers in the ecosystem are also qualified GoChain developers." - Jason Dekker, GoChain CEO
Unlike traditional weekend hackathons, this will be a one week virtual event, which will allow anyone in the world to participate. We are encouraging individuals to come together and build on GoChain. New hackers welcome! If this is your first event don’t worry! We will have support 24/7 as well as mentors to help you along the way. If you do not have an exsisitng idea or team you will have the opportunity to meet other hackers and build your own top team! All eligible submissions will be presented to our panel of judges as well as the GoChain community, who will get the chance to be involved and vote on the "Community Choice Award".
“GoChain came from my poor user experience working with top protocols — plagued with high latency, fees, lack of adoption, and with no support for projects that build on their platforms. As a GoLang developer, I set out to architect a scalable solution built on the world’s most tested and proven smart contract blockchain protocol codebase — Geth. Since GoChain is 100% Ethereum backwards-compatible, 95% of blockchain developers in the ecosystem are also qualified GoChain developers and now have the opportunity to participate in a hackathon and build on the world’s only full-service, enterprise grade, public blockchain protocol. ” - Travis Reeder, GoChain CTO
GoBuild has allotted $20,000 in $GO and over $30,000 more in sponsorship contributions to be rewarded to the top teams. There will be a 1st and 2nd place prize and two sub category awards “Community Choice ” and “Go Green”. Our sponsors will also have the opportunity to decide on their favorites and award a company prize. With plenty up for grabs you don’t want to miss out! *Full list of prizes and sponsorship contributions will be included in a welcome email that will be sent out after application is submitted.
