Blockchain technology is of great interest to participants of hackathons. Therefore, Telos will host the first crypto hackathon ever on an Ivy League Campus. None other than the renowned Harvard University will be home to this three-day event.
A Crypto Hackathon At Harvard University
Given the growing interest in blockchain technology, it is plausible to assume there will be more hackathons and similar events. These efforts bring together people looking to turn their bright and innovative ideas into working products and services. Those efforts will build even stronger momentum with the support from renowned Ivy League campuses. Hack Boston, to be organized at Harvard University, is the first such event on an Ivy League campus.
From September 23-25, over 300 students will participate in the workshops and mentoring sessions. These students come from Harvard and MIT – two of the most prominent universities worldwide – and other Ivy League colleges. As a result, attendees will gain a better insight into blockchain technology and its possibilities.
Moreover, the workshops at Hck Boston are set up to introduce more people to Web3 technology. That is made possible with the help of Telos, one of the leading blockchain ecosystems. Telos has built its presence by supporting hackathons, dApp developers, supply chain management solutions, etc. With its powerful and robust infrastructure, Telos aims to play a growing role in decentralized solutions with mainstream appeal.
Telos will be represented at Hack Boston by Justin Giudici and Jesse Schulman. Together, they will host the “Get Started: Build Faster, Fairer DeFi on Telos” workshop and offer a comprehensive understanding of this ecosystem. Unlike other networks, Telos prides itself on ESG compliance, fixed gas prices, and top-tier scaling. Justin and Jesse will also provide mentorship to participating hacker teams to help them achieve their goals.
Reaching A New Era For Blockchain Technology
Getting a foot in the door at Ivy League campuses has been a lengthy process for the broader blockchain industry. However, Telos has successfully cracked the code – with the help of the Harvard and MIT blockchain clubs and Web3 learning app EasyA. Moreover, the future impact of Web3 technology has become more tangible. The Hack Boston hackathon will continue to build on that momentum and propel the industry forward.
There are also two big prices – $4,000 and $6,000, respectively – for the winning teams. In addition, Telos will award prizes to blockchain projects focused on real-world impact and decentralized finance. Winners will need to pay attention to using or implementing Web3 technology in these proceedings. Blockchain technology can change the lives of millions of people, especially when real-world use cases come to fruition.
