During New YorkBlockchain week, the team at Hydrogen behind the Hydro blockchain will be hosting a SharkTankstyleevent, blockchainedition! Developers are invited to Silicon Alley on May 17th to come pitch theirDAppproject!
The Hydro team will be deployinga decentralized consensus vote using a smart contract, instead of having centralized judges. We will show the audience how this will work using blockchain technology in action!
You will be judged by the following criteria:
1. Quality of your 3-minute pitch
2. The relevance of the problem you are attempting to solve
3. How effective you are at utilizing Blockchain to solve the problem
4. Potential adoption
For the app to qualify as aDAppit must meet the following criteria:
1. Rely at least in part on sending transactions to, or reading data from, a live blockchain
2. Be achievable given the current state of blockchain technology
3. Attempt to provide a decentralized solution to a problem that has typically required trust in centralized actors
4. Not be a copycat of an existingDApp, protocol, or whitepaper
It is a huge plus if there is an existing working prototype or live version of yourDApp. If not, wewill be opening the Hydrogen office to dev teams starting at12PMon the day of the event. This will be a hackathon-stylehalf-day session where the devs can use the Hydrogen API & other partner technologies to develop their application.
There will be up to 10 live projects, & 10 incubated projects presenting during the competition.
We had so many people RSVP that we moved the venue from the Hydrogen office to the larger GA auditorium acrossthe street!
Winner(s) will be awarded a huge prize! (Cash, services, and/or tokens!)
*Free pizza & beer*
