Bitcoin Unlimited Hosts Week-Long Hackathon to Bolster the Future of Finance
On December 2, 2020, the organization and full node project Bitcoin Unlimited is hosting a week-long hackathon that aims to build the future of finance by leveraging the decentralized crypto network Bitcoin Cash. The event dubbed “Coinparty 2020” aims to get the top crypto talent in the world to compete for $17k worth of bitcoin cash prizes.
The cryptocurrency community has grown massively in 2020, and there’s been a number of new and exciting innovations this year. Bitcoin Unlimited (BU) wants to bring a number of useful innovations to the Bitcoin Cash (BCH) network and the organization is hosting a hackathon to bolster this goal.
The event is called “Coinparty 2020” and it’s not only supported by BU, but also the team of peer-to-peer electronic cash proponents Satoshi’s Angels and the firm General Protocols as well.
“Join our hackathon to collaborate and compete with top crypto talent from around the world,” the event’s web portal details. “We welcome talented people from all different skill-sets including: developers, marketers, designers, and business people. CoinParty is for anyone who wants to build amazing blockchain tools and products using cryptocurrency,” the website adds.
The $17k worth of bitcoin cash (BCH) prizes will be split into different focus groups like the Coinparty all-stars, user focus, and the Nakamoto award. Six judges have been announced including BU’s lead developer Andrew Stone, BU engineer Andrea Suisani, Bitcoin Verde’s Josh Green, Coinbase staff engineer Josh Ellithorpe, BCHN developer Calin Caliau, and General Protocol’s lead developer Jonathan Silverblood.
Participants will be advised by qualified experts such as Satoshi’s Angels senior marketing manager Eléonore Blanc, Knuth lead developer Fernando Pelliccioni, BU developer Dagur Valberg, Simpleledger.cash CEO James Cramer, and General Protocols senior developer Rosco Kalis. The Coinparty 2020 event will also be hosted by John Moriarty and Paul Wasensteiner. The Coinparty kickoff starts on December 2, with the team foundings, ideation, and the Coinparty Opening Ceremony.
Throughout December 4th through the 7th, there will be live stream interviews with some of the teams, as onlookers will get live progress updates.
