The TRON Grand Hackathon 2022 Returns for Season 2

Geneva, Switzerland // – TRON DAO and BitTorrent Chain (BTTC) are gearing up for Season 2 of the TRON Grand Hackathon 2022, with registration beginning Monday, May 16.

The Hackathon is part of TRON DAO’s long-term efforts to promote the mass adoption of blockchain technology and innovative cross-chain solutions. The Hackathon’s primary goal is to empower developers to create and execute DeFi, GameFi, NFT, and Web3 projects and build a robust content and entertainment community on TRON and other blockchain platforms.

With an aggregate bounty of USD 1 million, the Hackathon will be split into four tracks, encompassing DeFi, GameFi, NFT, and Web3. This will be an ongoing funding event, commencing every three months, to promote the growth of the TRON and BTTC ecosystems.

There will be a permanent review panel throughout the Hackathon and a special guest panel for each season. Eligible submissions will be evaluated between August 1 to 11, 2022, and winners will be announced on August 17, 2022. Season 2 of the Hackathon will feature a stellar panel of judges from some of crypto’s most prestigious institutions and projects coming together to offer their expertise and accelerate the growth of the TRON DAO ecosystem.

The first stage of evaluation determines whether the concepts meet a baseline level of viability, such as reasonably fitting the topic and implementing the necessary APIs/SDKs advertised during the Hackathon.

The judges will evaluate all submissions that pass the first stage in stage two based on the following equally weighted criteria:

  • Technological Implementation: Does the project demonstrate quality software development?
  • Design: Is the user experience and design of the project well thought out?
  • Potential Impact: How big of an impact could the project have on the category’s target audience?
  • Quality of the Idea: How creative and unique is the project?

The scores from the judges will select the potential winners of the applicable prizes. The applicants eligible for a prize and whose submissions earn the highest overall scores based on the applicable judging criteria will become potential winners of that prize. The TRON DAO Forum prizes will be awarded based on community votes on the Hackathon projects submitted on the TRON DAO Forum.

The TRON Grand Hackathon 2022 and the TRON DAO Forum are all about possibilities, interactions, and empowering the TRON DAO community to have a say in the digital world. The decentralized web is all about putting the power in the hands of the people.

As a bonus, APENFT Marketplace will be partnering with the NFT track winners to provide resources and a platform to help them achieve their Hackathon goals while bringing much-needed visibility to up-and-coming NFT projects within the TRON and BTTC ecosystems.

The Hackathon will also support the top track winners with various resources, including potential funding opportunities from the TRON and BTTC Ecosystem Fund, liquidity, and integration with partner exchanges.
