Stay tuned for updates about our 3rd Hackathon. Round 1 is taking place online from 23rd June to 18th August, and the final round will be at the CoinGeek Conference in New York (USA) in October 2020.
The Bitcoin Association Virtual Hackathon is setting the stage for developers to build new applications on the Bitcoin SV blockchain. If you’re one of the finalists selected, you get to present your application at the CoinGeek Conference in New York in October 2020. You’ll win Bitcoin SV and potentially receive investment funds.
This coding hackathon will be virtual – taking place online from 23 June 2020 to 18 August 2020. That means you can participate from anywhere in the world! Applications are open until the last day of submissions August 18, midday (GMT time zone).
After the virtual hackathon, three finalists will be chosen.

A panel of judges composed of experts in the blockchain industry and the live audience will select the winner
Build with us on BSV – the global enterprise blockchain.
Technology: How technically impressive is the product? Does it use a particularly inventive technique, or does it use several different components? Does the product have a “wow” factor? How well the project solves a problem?
Design: Did the team put thought into the user experience? How well designed is the interface? For a hardware project, it might be more about how good the human-computer interaction is e.g. user friendly or have an engaging interface.
Completion: Does the product work? Did the team achieve what they wanted?
Market fit: Does the product solve a real problem and have a market? Is there a workable business model that the project fits into? The project need not implement an entire business model. It may be just one component, but demonstrating that this has been thought about is a key criteria.
These criteria will guide judges but ultimately decisions will necessarily be made with a degree of subjectivity. The judges’ decision will be final.
Assistance will be available from both the moderators and nChain staff:
