Decentralized cloud network Beowulf, today announced $10,000 in earnings to spur development of its native blockchain. App developers are encouraged to submit their creations as part of Blockathon, an ongoing hackathon open to blockchain enthusiasts from around the world.
A number of cash prizes are up for grabs for crypto-passionate IT engineers, developers, designers and students that demonstrate their creativity and make a positive impression to the leaders of Beowulf.
Participants are able to create native applications using an array of programming languages (Python, Java, Node JS, Go and PHP), that integrate with the Beowulf blockchain API.
Prior to the August 15th hackathon, a kick-off event was held on July 18th, during which first-round results were submitted. On August 1st, the Blockathan organization team will conduct a presentation day, where security researchers will be rewarded for their efforts.
“These events always include a submission that questions your assumptions in some way, or that involve a use case you couldn’t have envisaged. The Blockathon is a fantastic opportunity for emerging developers to get together, put their creativity to the test, and show the many ways in which blockchain technology can be harnessed.”
– Beowulf CEO Dr. William H. Nguyen
Beowulf offers flexible APIs and ready-to-use front-end SDKs to ensure seamless integration, low latency, and global connectivity. The SDKs along with other technical docs for developers can be found on the Developer Guide.
Beowulf: Decentralized Cloud Network
Beowulf is a decentralized cloud platform built by combining globally computing resources into a supercomputer network on the blockchain for serving communication services.
Headquartered in Silicon Valley, Beowulf recently launched their first service on its platform: an application named QUICKOM that lets users generate custom QR codes to use for inbound communication. QUICKOM records every transaction on the blockchain, offering individuals and organizations improved privacy and connectivity.
