To stimulate the use of time in this quarantine, Aeternity Blockchain will carry out the 2nd. Hackathon in Venezuela this March 25 and 26.

Aeternity wants to stimulate learning about blockchain, and thus provide options for the use of free time while you protect yourself in your residence against the threat of the coronavirus (COVID-19).

This 2nd. Hackathon is a collective effort of the team of ambassadors of Aeternity in Venezuela, made up of Juan Carlos Delpino (Leader), Marco Gómez (Dist. Capital), Adrián Sánchez (Miranda), Boris Guevara (Lara), Iván León (Carabobo) and Luis Torres (Nueva Esparta).

This Hackathon is an open call for all blockchain enthusiasts to participate, be they developers or entrepreneurs in general in the field of new disruptive technologies.

We are in search of new projects that integrate the use of the Aeternity blockchain, showing its characteristics in an original way.

The projects can be in different stages of development, since the way the event is designed allows the advancement in stages, which makes it easier for new teams or ventures to advance at the same time as other more experienced ones.
The hackathon will be 100% online thanks to the use of video-conferencing tools, which allow participants to interact with each other jointly with the event moderators.

This is a unique opportunity to consult questions directly with experts in the field and receive guidance about the implementation of the Aeternity blockchain in their projects.

The three best ideas or projects will receive a cash prize:

1st Place 500 2nd Place 250
3rd Place $ 150
They will also receive allegorical flannels and quotas for hours of personalized consultation.

Yes, we are very happy for the assistance achieved, despite the difficulties.
I mention that 17 teams managed to enroll in the event of which the vast majority have good initiatives for the use of blockchain, there is still a lot of content to evaluate and interact with the groups to polish all those initiatives, which we will comment on here.

==============================================================================

Si, estamos muy contentos por la asistencia alcanzada, a pesar de las dificultades.
Te menciono se lograron inscribir en el evento 17 equipos de los cuales la gran mayoría poseen buenas iniciativas para el uso de la blockchain, aun falta mucho contenido por evaluar e interactuar con los grupos para pulir todas esas iniciativas, el cual iremos comentando por aquí mismo.
