TRON Grand Hackathon: An Olympics Thrown for Blockchain Developers by Justin Sun, Accelerates the Cross-Chain Future

New York, New York–(Newsfile Corp. - February 22, 2022) - On Feburary 10, the Justin-backed TRON hosted an Olympics-style event for blockchain developers worldwide: the TRON Grand Hackathon 2022.

From the first TRON Accelerator in 2018 to the SUN Network Developer Challenger in 2019 to the Global DeFi Hackathon in 2021, all attracted capable developers and teams from worldwide. Built on the success of previous contests, TRON-backed hackathons can lay claim to represent the highest standard of research and development in blockchain technologies.

Unlike the previous sessions, the TRON Grand Hackathon 2022 is co-hosted by TRON DAO and BitTorrent Chain (BTTC). With the support of BTTC, which is now compatible with mainstream public chains like TRON, Ethereum, and BSC, this hackathon is set to appeal to the many excellent developers from other public chain ecosystems.

The TRON Hackathon will offer a perfect window for TRON to flex its muscle and to attract talented developers. As the Hackathon unveils, more developers and users will gravitate towards TRON for its easy and friendly development environment, superior network performance, and solid technical capacity.

“The future is not far from where decentralized storage, decentralized applications, digital assets, and cryptocurrency wallets are widespread. With the increasing use of decentralized, peer-to-peer and secure networks, blockchain is becoming the backbone of Web 3.0-the decentralized web,” said Justin Sun. The TRON Grand Hackathon 2022 creates opportunities for unheard-of talents to make their marks and accelerate the development of Web 3.0 while promoting the growth of the blockchain ecosystem at the same time.

TRON Grand Hackathon 2022, the first hackathon after TRON Foundation was restructured into the world’s largest decentralized organization TRON DAO, comes on a larger scale with upgraded rules.

Unlike the past one-session-a-year contests, this grand hackathon comprises three sessions, which makes it an actual “marathon for developers” as the name suggests. The duration from February 14 to November 13 is long enough to involve any passionate teams interested in building projects on the TRON public chain and BTTC throughout the seasons.

Each hackathon session has four tracks:

Web3 : Contribute to the transition of Web 2.0 to Web 3.0 by introducing useful DAO tools and SocialFi;

DeFi : Leverage DeFi to serve billions of the unprivileged by offering convenient financial solutions to everyone;

GameFi : The next generation gaming where entertainment meets blockchain;

NFT : Embrace the creator economy.

The application is open to everyone, whether the applicant is a blockchain developer, a smart contract developer, a designer, or a product manager, working individually or in a team. Anyone is eligible for the review as long as they complete a project of any of the above categories using Solidity and post their project to TRON DAO’s forum by the deadline of each session.

Those already working on in-progress proects are also eligible for the Grand Hackathon. Any existing project in development on TRON or other blockchains is welcome as long as it meets the requirements of this hackathon.

Besides, the judging of this hackathon comes with an update. The judging criteria have been diversified to include such dimensions as originality and creation, technicality and design, business model and feasibility, user experience, practicality and use cases, and contribution to the crypto currency’s ecosystem. The contest hopes to see well-rounded entrants in all tracks that can boost the growth of the decentralized network and the blockchain ecosystem.

The review panel is also worth mentioning. Like other games, this hackathon has permanent judges-delegates from KuCoin, Huobi, and Poloniex-and a dynamic special guest review panel for each session. Each track’s final review panel consists of crypto experts, KOLs, and a public community review board, whose scores account for 30%, 30%, and 40%, respectively, showing a combo of transparency and authority.

The community review board is undoubtedly the highlight of the judging system. The community will begin voting with TRX or BTT at the start of each judging period which will last for four days, and the voted tokens will be fully refunded to voters on the day the winners are announced. The whole process will be open and transparent.

For community members, the TRON Grand Hackathon 2022, where opportunities are everywhere, is a free entrance to a quality seed round. For entrants, they can have their work showcased in the world’s most mainstream public chain community without incurring any customer acquisition costs.

Winning teams will be awarded financially, as well as invaluable support from TRON, including but not limited to extra financial support for projects with a vast base of active users, the listing of excellent projects on Poloniex and other exchanges supporting the TRON ecosystem, fast-track listing on TRON-supporting DEXs such as SunSwap, inclusion in the DApp list on TRONLink with a featured banner, and promotion on the social media account of TRON DAO or H.E. Justin Sun.

TRON Grand Hackathon 2022 will kick off on February 14. As the appeal and impact of decentralization are seen by more people globally, this contest that TRON showers with enormous resources and funds will further fuel this sweeping trend worldwide.
