DoraHacks holds 24 hours hackathon in India, employs blockchain technology to develop the most intense brainstorming session
DoraHacks, a global hacker community that is also the biggest hacker organization in China, held a huge hacking session in Bangalore, India. The event was held to employ the most sophisticated blockchain technology to brainstorm and come up with ways to solve the most pressing problems currently faced by the society.
From a total of 500 registrants, only 200 hackers were selected to take part in the 24 hour-long hackathon event. This year, DoraHacks decided to hold its events in several countries around the world. With the first event held in Boston (September 22-23), DoraHacks held the second event in India. This will be followed by events in Oxford (October 20-21), Seoul (October 27-28), Berlin (November 3-4), and finally wrapping up with Tokyo (November 10-11).
This was the first hackathon held by DoraHacks in India over the weekend, with a prize pool of 200,000 INR, which roughly translates to around $2,700. The prize pool was divided according to the number of votes that each participant received.
The event was co-hosted and partnered by leading blockchain organizations such as Huobi, MoonX, Block72, Fenbushi Capital, Incrypt, SpringRole, freeCodeCamp and Matic Network.
