The hackathon provides developers interested in DeFi and data analytics with the opportunity to design, code, learn and network as they bring their ideas to life.
The Open Network (TON), a revolutionary technology to unite all blockchains and Web2 internet into one open network, in collaboration with DWF Labs and Amazon Web Services (AWS), is hosting a decentralized finance (DeFi) and Data Analytics Hackathon, Hack-a-TON x DWF Labs x AWS.
The hackathon provides developers interested in DeFi and data analytics with the opportunity to design, code, learn and network as they bring their ideas to life. Participants will be able to engage with a vibrant community of Web3 builders, obtain access to virtual workshops led by experienced mentors and specialists, and showcase their ideas at the event finale. The winning project will receive investment from DWF Labs to transform their idea into reality. In addition, there’s a total prize pool that includes prize money of 150,000 USD worth of Toncoin (TON), the native cryptocurrency of TON, and an additional 150,000 USD worth of TON in grants and AWS Credits worth USD 115,000. TON is used for transaction fees, securing the TON blockchain through staking, deciding how the network develops and settling payments.
Throughout the duration of the hackathon, there will be regular virtual workshops for all participants and online assistance from AWS, DWF Labs and TON mentors who will be ready to answer questions from teams in the hackathon chat while the building phase runs from May 27 until July 27. The sessions are designed to aid builders and provide them with the skills, knowledge, and time they need to build on their ideas, bring their projects to life, and network with other participants. Participants who successfully complete the hackathon will receive exclusive NFTs, and teams who make it to the final round will be entitled to exclusive merchandise and stand to win from the prize pool. Andrei Grachev, the Managing Partner at DWF Labs, commented,
“This event is a remarkable opportunity for developers passionate about DeFi and data analytics to unleash their creativity, learn, and network with like-minded individuals. We believe in the power of innovation and want to inspire builders to create exceptional applications on the TON platform. In addition to the substantial monetary prizes, our aim is to encourage participants to contribute to the growth of the TON ecosystem by building transformative projects. We eagerly await the groundbreaking ideas and solutions that will emerge from this hackathon, and we’re excited to support the winners in bringing their visions to life.”
