Dubbed “Get Started: Build Faster, Fairer DeFi on Telos”, the workshop offers a comprehensive understanding of the Telos ecosystem and its key advantages over other technology stacks for developers and users alike. Notable features include ESG compliance, lightning-fast transactions, fixed gas prices, top-tier scalability, and much more.
In addition, Justin and Jesse will provide mentorship to the hacker teams to help them put their best foot forward during this hackathon.It is another example of how Telos is committed to getting more people actively involved with its technology and the future applications built on top of it.
Through the workshops, Justin and Jesse will help people gain a better understanding of the importance of choosing the correct infrastructure in the blockchain industry. In addition, there may even be free Telos merch and other swag for attendees to take home and spread the word about the Telos ecosystem.
A hackathon would not be complete without cash prizes. As a sponsor, Telos will award two prizes to blockchain projects focused on these crucial pillars:
- Best of DeFi – $6000: This prize will be awarded to the project judged best in evolving the traditional and/or decentralized finance spaces. Projects in this category will be geared more towards improving financial markets for retail users or institutions (i.e. exchanges, banking services, lending protocols) and improve how they do business with the advent of web3 technology.
- Best of Real World – $4000: This prize will be awarded to the project that significantly impacts people’s everyday lives (i.e., Providing new ways to earn money through social media and/or solving a critical real-world problem). Projects in this category are geared towards end-users (i.e., Retail consumers) and leverage web3 technology to provide a solution.
The Hack Boston hackathon is the latest effort supported by Telos on its path to unlocking the potential of Web3. The team has previously supported various dApps evolving financial markets, boosting production in developing nations, supply chain management, carbon emission reduction, etc. Providing the crucial infrastructure powering the development of these decentralized solutions is a big step toward reaching the future of blockchain.
