Spend the Pandemic Inside: Join Our Gitcoin Cross-Chain Hackathon and Win Prizes

We all find ourselves in uncharted territory at the moment. Almost certainly you are, like us, at home for the duration of the current pandemic. We had already begun planning to be part of a virtual, asynchronous blockchain hackathon before the virus spread around the planet. The next Gitcoin Virtual Hackathon starts on April 20th. The crypto and JavaScript communities will find some camaraderie, inspiration, and excitement when it gets going. You can register right now for the Gitcoin Cross-Chain Hackathon at gitcoin.co. (More information is coming.)

Getting involved is as easy as ABC — that is, Agoric (agoric.com), Band Protocol (bandprotocol.com), and Cosmos (cosmos.network). We are all excited to announce we’ll be participating in the April Gitcoin Virtual Hackathon, which will run from Monday, April 20 through Monday, May 11. For this hackathon, we’d like to see what real-world applications developers can build using the Cosmos SDK, Agoric’s SDK, and Band chain. We’d also love to see what you can do with IBC, the protocol used to connect all these blockchains together (more at cosmos.network/ibc). Read more
