Ethereum update: EthAtlanta announces its hackathon at Atlanta Tech Park from September 21-23 – Sponsored by FedEx and Emory University
The EthAtlanta competition features weekend-long events that will bring together top developers, enthusiasts and entrepreneurs to take on the hackathon challenge. Developers will have access to Provide, the enterprise class blockchain platform that focuses on powering decentralized business on a global scale (using the platform is not required to participate, but will give teams a competitive advantage). The participating teams will compete to create innovative prototypes that demonstrate their hacking and design skills, while bringing to life actual use cases curated by the organizers and sponsors of the event. The mission of EthAtlanta is to drive the next generation of enterprise applications using blockchain technology while showcasing Atlanta’s emerging presence and talented leadership in the space.
The winning team will receive $10,000. Additional cash prizes will be announced for second and third place. There will be a drone race during the weekend. Participants will work in teams over a 48 hour period to create a blockchain idea from scratch. Teams will present their final products to a panel of expert judges on Sunday, September 23, where the final winners will be announced.
