BNB Chain's Zero2Hero Hackathon is receiving support from AWS, Google Cloud, and Tencent Cloud, as well as several Web3 partners, for an upcoming blockchain hackathon where participants will compete for cash prizes and a chance to join the incubator program.

Major Tech & Web3 Support

BNB Chain has announced the Zero2Hero Hackathon, the second phase of its six-month online Bootcamp-Hackathon-Incubator program.

The hackathon will take place from April 17th to May 14th, and has garnered support from Amazon Web Services (AWS), Google Cloud, and Tencent Cloud as key strategic technology partners. The event aims to bring together blockchain professionals and developers from around the world to collaborate on projects and solutions that will help advance the blockchain industry.

We spoke to the team to understand more about the exciting development:

“As part of the 6-month Builder Series, the Zero2Hero Hackathon is an exciting opportunity for developers to showcase their skills and compete with the best in the industry. With the support of our strategic technology partners, including AWS, Google Cloud and Tencent Cloud, as well as our Web3 partners such as Chainlink Labs and Axelar, we are excited to bring together a community of talented developers and innovative projects,” said Zoe Wei, Head of Developer Relations at BNB Chain.

BNB Chain has also partnered with several leading Web3 companies for this hackathon, including Chainlink Labs, Axelar, Nodereal, Polyhedra, Hacken, RSS3, and Port3. The hackathon will feature seven tracks, including DeFi, Infra & Scalability, SocialFi, Cross-chain, NFT, Gamify & Metaverse, Greenfield and Innovation. Participants will compete for cash prizes of $15k for 1st place, $6k for 2nd place, and $4k for 3rd place in each track.

BNB Chain's hackathon has garnered strong backing.

During the hackathon, nearly 20 technical workshops will be provided where hackers can learn the latest technologies. Free access to multiple dev resources such as cloud and node services will be available, and the calendar of the tech teams of partners will be open for hackers to book office hours. The judging criteria will lean towards full MVPs projects, although a clean and creative implementation of the feature serving as an excellent example of feature usage is also acceptable.

The 6-Month Builder Series, focused on accelerating Web3 development, commenced its initial phase in February with a Bootcamp featuring sessions in multiple languages. The series will be held in partnership with the Blockchain Center, established by Astana Hub, the largest technopark in Central Asia, and the Payment and Financial Technologies Development Center of the National Bank of Kazakhstan. Other partners included the Blockchain Academy Group, a Hong Kong government-backed program, and Encode Club, a leader in Solidity training.
