Hackathon in Colombia: Ethereum dApps developers can win $ 1 million

  • The USD 1 million prize will be awarded in native tokens on the Metis platform.

Until November 30, software developers with knowledge in the creation of smart contracts will be able to join the Metis Hackathon in Colombia. Participants will have the chance to win up to $ 1 million in tokens and prizes awarded by the Binance exchange.

The event seeks the development of new decentralized applications (dApps) in Ethereum and also the integration or migration of DApps to Metis Layer 2 , a second layer of the network that allows reducing gas rates for users.

The works will be evaluated according to three criteria: the problem it solves, its value proposition and its economic, social and environmental impact. Those interested who think they can take this challenge can register on the Metis website , where they can also find all the relevant information about it.

The creators of the best solutions will be awarded USD 1 million. This sum of money will be distributed among all the winners. Payment will be made through the delivery of METIS tokens. In turn, the company will offer each one recognition and support for the Ethereum ecosystem development program.

Those who prototype with P2P payment solutions supported on Binance will be able to qualify additionally for other awards. Binance, a leading global cryptocurrency exchange , is one of the sponsors of this initiative, in conjunction with two other entities. They are Juristech from the Universidad del Rosario and Colombia Fintech.
