Devcon IV is on track to be the biggest Ethereum conference in the world to date, drawing hundreds of engineers, entrepreneurs and enterprises from across the Ethereum community.
We are also launching Pantheon, our public chain client, and hoping to kickstart engagement with the codebase, which you can access here: https://github.com/PegaSysEng/pantheon
We’re looking to celebrate and reward teams and projects that build useful tools and extensions for the community and enterprises, and who demonstrate novel ideas and direction.
Anyone and everyone is eligible and welcome to participate.
Please read the list of suggested challenges we put together along with our sponsors to get a sense of the types of projects we're looking for at this hackathon. You're welcome to use one of our items, alter it with your own ideas, or pursue a challenge not on the list (open challenge), but make sure to build in line with the judging criteria.
