Registrations open for xDay Hackathon, with up to $1M in prizes and funding
One of the most highly anticipated initiatives aimed at expanding the scope and size of the MultiversX ecosystem and to provide a unique platform for developers to create apps and tools, the xDay Hackathon, will take place between September 21 and October 21, with registration now officially open.
Being one of the biggest hackathons and dev events in Europe, xDay Hackathon is aimed at fostering a month-long exploration of cutting edge technologies such as Web3, AI and the Metaverse, in a focused collaboration between developers, experts and entrepreneurs.
The hackathon, offering prizes and funding of up to $1M, is organized in collaboration with industry-leading multi-chain software engineers’ communities, DoraHacks and Encode.
Two journeys. Six tracks. A month of exploration.
Split into two concurring journeys, the xDay Hackathon invites developers of all skill levels and from all over the world to take part and come up with innovative use cases for 6 main tech areas.
In partnership with Encode, the first one, Future of Technology, offers developers the option to choose from 5 tracks: Artificial Intelligence, Decentralized Finance (DeFi), Infrastructure & Development Tooling, Payments, Mobile Apps.
"Impressive energy is being put into ensuring the best context for participants to create and expand their horizons. We're excited to see what developers from the blockchain and tech worlds will build during the month-long hackathon. The high level of expertise and commitment from the MultiversX team adds an extra layer of value to the event, making it an exceptional opportunity for anyone interested in exploring advanced technologies to further their journey." said Anthony Beaumont, Encode Club CEO
For the second journey, Gaming and Metaverse, organized together with DoraHacks, participants will immerse themselves in the gaming and Metaverse worlds, exploring new frontiers, and shaping the future of interactive entertainment.
"DoraHacks is thrilled to support MultiversX for their xDay Hackathon, fostering innovation within the ecosystem by supporting developers as they explore creative ways to build Next-Gen games on top of MultiversX's scalable infrastructure" said Steve Ngok, DoraHacks partner
Exciting prizes and funding opportunities
Innovative ideas need resources to come to life, and xDay Hackathon creates the perfect context for resourceful teams to receive the necessary support that propels their projects forward. Alongside direct and substantial cash prizes, the event will feature VC and ecosystem launchpad investors, opening up important business opportunities for the winning projects. Overall, xDay Hackathon will provide up to $1M in prizes and funding.
"Some of the best minds in tech are yet to be discovered, and some of the most defining ideas are yet to be built. The xDay Hackathon is a first step in creating the environment to make ideas happen. It's a fascinating and hardcore journey toward the next tech frontiers." said Beniamin Mincu, MultiversX CEO.
Grand Finale: 24 Hours of Innovation
This entire journey will culminate with an in-person finale at the annual MultiversX flagship event, xDay 2023 in Bucharest, Romania, organized between October 19-21.
For 24 hours, participants will connect with like-minded individuals, showcase their creations and compete for recognition on the grand stage.
