aelf to Kickstart Its First Metaverse-themed Hackaton
Of late, metaverse has been all the rage in the crypto and wider tech industry.
Today, aelf announced the launch of its first metaverse-themed hackathon called Top of OASIS.
The Top of OASIS hackathon commences from December 12, 2021, and will allow the participants to submit their projects anytime until February 9, 2022.
Later, the aelf team will conduct its internal review and discussions from February 10-14 while the final results of the hackathon will be declared on February 15.
The event is expected to witness huge participation given the rapidly rising interest of tech conglomerates such as Facebook (now Meta), Microsoft, and others in the metaverse.
The Top of OASIS hackathon will enable open-source developers and blockchain projects to compete with each other for an opportunity to win big prizes from the hackathon’s significant prize pool. In addition, all the participating teams and developers will receive unparalleled support from the aelf network.
What is the Top of OASIS Hackathon?
For the uninitiated, the Top of OASIS Hackathon aims to support early-stage projects and ideas being developed by open-source developer communities. The hackathon provides a platform for both community members and organizations to seamlessly participate in funding developer projects and blockchain ventures.
