Hosted by Tron DAO and BitTorrent Chain, the Tron Grand Hackathon 2022 is back again, this time with a prize pool of $1.2 million. The competition brings another exciting opportunity for yet-to-be-discovered talents to show their skills and help accelerate the future of Web3 through unique crypto project proposals.
Whether you’re a developer, entrepreneur, designer or blockchain enthusiast, the Tron Grand Hackathon is the perfect opportunity for you to grow the ecosystem and get your ideas seen by crypto experts, KOLs and the community. This season, Tron DAO is expanding the competition’s tracks, giving you more opportunities to go for gold.
The Grand Hackathon has always maintained a professional panel of judges from crypto’s most prestigious institutions, and this season is no different. The judging group is well-rounded in all things blockchain and supports the growth of the Tron DAO ecosystem. To view all judges and partners, check out the Tron DAO website.
The panel of professional judges and community reviewers on the Tron DAO Forum will rank each project based on creativity, originality, feasibility and overall activity during the judging period.
Beyond the recognition and cash prizes, hackathon winners will also have access to additional support, which potentially includes additional funding, project listing on partner exchanges, features on Tron DAO’s website and promotions on Tron DAO’s social media channels, among others.
