Bitcoin Association’s 1st BSV Hackathon – May 2019

Semi-finalists: Top 14 entries from virtual competition (May 4-5)

The semi-finalists of Bitcoin Association’s first BSV Hackathon have been announced. The judges have narrowed the entries to a semi-final group from the 36 entries submitted. The judges originally intended to select 10 semi-finalists; however, the entry qualities were of such a high standard that they instead selected 14.

The virtual competition took place May 4-5. In total, 216 enthusiastic coders signed up to participate in the event. Of that number, 122 were to compete as individuals, and another 94 joined together to form 42 teams. They worked on their projects for 48 hours. Their challenge was to develop a solution for BSV on-boarding problems, extending beyond on-boarding new users to also the challenge of on-boarding developers to BSV.

List of Semi-finalists:
