Beginning in July, IBC 2022-23 will host a series of Hackathons. These events, led by Hackathon experts and supervised by top mentors, will attract young, brilliant minds in the blockchain and crypto space. IBC promotes a highly competitive environment in which the best ideas, innovations, and presentations are rewarded.

IBC-HACK-1 is the first of the series in the IBC Hackathon cohort and is designed to attract a coterie of developers, engineers and students who wish to make their mark in the blockchain and web 3.0 ecosystem.

IBC-HACK-1 will provide the platform for solving some of the critical challenges – strategic, functional and technical – faced by the blockchain industry.

Alternatively, IBC-HACK-1 will create a pool of highly skilled developers who will also fill in the resource scarcity gap in the ecosystem.

With a total prize pool of USD 135,000 and growing, IBC Hackathon showcases the best blockchain and web 3.0 has to offer.

The event registration will start from 30 July, 2022 for IBC-HACK-1 and the application will be closed by August 25, 2022.
