On Tuesday, blockchain company Tron announced the results of its famous Hackathon competition. Over 500,000 USDD was availed as prize money. In addition, top projects were prioritized for capital funding by Tron DAO ventures.
More than 600 developers participated in six categories, including NFT, DeFi, GameFi, Eco-Friendly, new Builder, and Web3.
While announcing the results, Tron’s Lead Developer, Ejaz Merchant, lauded everyone that submitted their projects and asked them to continue solving real-world problems using the Tron blockchain.
Winners in each category received 20,000 USDD. The first runner-ups took home 15,000 USDD, while third runner-ups collected 10,000 USDD. Those who took fourth and fifth places pocketed 8,000 and 6,500 USDD, respectively.
Tron established the new Builder category to recognize developers returning to the competition after making massive upgrades to their projects. Eik Finance was announced the winner after its project ‘Farming-as-a-Service’ emerged at the top. The project enables other developers and users to create LP farms without prior coding knowledge.
The Eco-Friendly category included projects focusing on environmental stewardship and sustainability. EcoMarket took the top spot. This project is a marketplace for buying recycled and used plastics. The EcoMarket team said it intends to provide firms with transparent and reliable sources of recycled products.
Ergon emerged winner in the DeFi category. The project seeks to make access to Tron Stake.2.0 as simple as possible.
Judges picked Bobbybot.Trade as their top project in the NFT category. The decentralized application (dApp) will make it possible for players of Steam-based games like CounterStrike and Team Fortress to trade their NFTs for USDT, USDD, and TRX on Tron.
Tronjoy, a blockchain-based game, won the GameFi category. The game requires players to collect Tron utility tokens within the shortest time possible. Players can opt to play in ‘tournament’ or ‘duel’ mode.
Elsewhere, Trustsight became the top project in the Web3 category. This project uses user reviews to enhance decentralized trust for people to interact with the Tron blockchain confidently and securely.
Tron’s Enterprise Lead, Feroz Lakhami, says this was the best HackaTron season. He adds that he is looking forward to connecting deeply with projects working on environmental sustainability since they align with the company’s goal of being eco-friendly.
