Winners of 1st Bitcoin SV Developers Hackathon Announced

 

Toronto, Canada - June 5, 2019 (Investorideas.com Newswire) Bitcoin Association, the leading global organization for Bitcoin business, announced the winners of the first ever Bitcoin SV (BSV) Hackathon. The final phase of competition, involving the top 3 finalists, was held last week in Toronto at the CoinGeek Conference. The expert panel of judges, along with a live vote from almost 400 audience members determined winning projects as follows:

1st place with a prize of 250 BSV - UptimeSV

2nd place with a prize of 100 BSV - TonicPow

3rd Place with a prize of 50 BSV- PolyGlot

[Given the significant recent increase in BSV price, as of June 4, the prize pool is now worth $90,000].

UptimeSV: Provides distributed performance and uptime monitoring for robust, DDoS-hardened enterprise systems that is, of course, powered by Bitcoin SV and enables anyone to earn BSV by installing an app and getting paid to participate in uptime tests for clients of the platform. UptimeSV was developed by an Australia-based team who go by the name of Demonstrandium led by Dean Little (captain) with Brent Bevear, and Jye Turner.

TonicPow: A peer to peer advertising platform enabling users to monetize their site and earn Bitcoin SV directly from advertisers who can also promote their product with ease or raise money with crowd funding "Tonics." TonicPow was developed by a Canada-based team of Attila Aros (captain), Luke Rohenaz, and Austin Rappaport.

Polyglot: is designed to be Bitcoin SV's most intuitive way to interact with a myriad of metanet protocols through python, thus smoothing to entry path for new developers to Bitcoin SV - it's a match made in heaven. Polyglot was developed by a New Zealand-based developer is Hayden Joshua Donnelly, operating under username "AustEcon."

These projects demonstrate the diverse array of enterprise applications that can be built on the BSV blockchain. The finalists were selected after a virtual competition held in early May, with 216 participants globally (competing as teams or individually). Their challenge was to develop a solution for BSV on-boarding issues, extending beyond on-boarding new users to the challenge of also on-boarding new developers to BSV.

But, naturally, the world keeps turning and the very word 'developer' means the momentum must never stop; so we would like to invite even more of you to CoinGeek Seoul, in the first week of October to find more solutions and create yet more business-friendly additions to the BSV blockchain. The only blockchain that can do it all and scales, now.
