Join the waitlist for the 2nd BSV Virtual Hackathon on Aug. 17

Due to high demand, applications are now closed for the 2nd Bitcoin SV (BSV) Virtual Hackathon, but interested applicants can still join the waitlist for the event happening on August 17.

The 2nd BSV Virtual Hackathon, sponsored by CoinGeek and run by nChain, will pit teams of developers from across the world against each other to develop new apps and technologies on BSV. To join the waitlist, applicants will need to register on the Bitcoin Association website. Once they registered, they will receive an email containing all the details on what to expect.

If a spot opens up, waitlisted applicants will get an invite and a shot at winning their share of $35,000 worth of BSV.

Team members are required to have an active Telegram account, for inclusion in a group Telegram chat as the event gets underway, as well as being advised to ensure they are running the most up-to-date software and dev tools.

The virtual hackathon will set the stage for developers to build new applications on the Bitcoin SV blockchain. Finalists will get to present their applications at the CoinGeek Conference in Seoul, where they will win Bitcoin SV and potentially receive investment funds.

The finals are scheduled to take place on October 2, with selected developers eligible to attend the CoinGeek Conference, where they can pitch to investors for support to develop their ideas further. Proposals will be considered by a panel of industry experts in front of a live audience, before a final winner is selected.

The winner of the inaugural BSV Virtual Hackathon, UptimeSV, took home the top prize of 250 BSV in May, while second place winner TonicPow won 100 BSV. Polyglot emerged third and won 50 BSV.

Visit the Bitcoin Association website, and fill out the waitlist form—you could be one of the few who gets an invite to the 2nd BSV Virtual Hackathon.
