Today, token sale ecosystem CoinList announced CoinList Build, a product to help blockchain companies engage developers and grow their community via online hackathons. To date, 50 blockchain teams have used CoinList to raise $450 million.
As CoinList evolves their business to support the maturing industry, CoinList Build will help these projects succeed in their next phase of growth: finding developers.
First partner: 0x
0x, an open protocol that enables the peer-to-peer exchange of tokens on Ethereum, will be the inaugural hackathon. The 0x team constantly ships a new product, has built a phenomenal developer infrastructure, and their protocol supports dozens of independent businesses by enabling the trading of in-game items, traditional financial assets, and more.
To engage developers, CoinList Build and 0x are launching an online hackathon: Bringing Decentralized Markets to the Masses.
“We’re really excited about the potential for decentralized markets to unlock innovation, but usability is still a barrier to widespread adoption. We’re looking forward to seeing participants solve these problems.”
0x is awarding over $50,000 in ZRX tokens. This includes a $10,000 grand prize, $7,500 community choice award, and $2,500 for finalists in each category. 0x will also be giving $100 in ZRX to each participant that submits a project.
