The second season of the TRON Grand Hackathon consisted of over 30 major partners, nearly 40 different judges, and a community voting system. TRON DAO participants could take part in helping move the needle for their favorite projects building on TRON and BTTC across all four tracks: DeFi, Web3, GameFi, and NFT. Within these four tracks, there are 74 submissions for Web3, 48 for DeFi, 50 for NFT, and 30 for GameFi. Project submissions came across 64 different countries, and total participants from 104 countries. The diversity in participant submissions further highlights the growth of TRON’s global audience.

The increase in applicants is not the only area of growth in the TRON Grand Hackathon. The prize pool has also doubled from $500,000 in Season1 to $1,000,000 in Season 2, this increase in the prize pool is due to the increasing number of successful projects being built on the TRON and BTTC networks. The number of winners has also increased from five per track, to eight. 

What Are Judges Looking For?

The judges have already started the vetting process to find the next big project. Across the four tracks, there are different qualities that judges are looking for. In the Web3 track, TRON DAO is looking for projects that are helping provide sustainable solutions that Web2 products could not create efficiently. In the NFT track, we are looking to find projects that take advantage of blockchain technology in order to help grow the creator economy. In the DeFi track, a big goal is to find projects focused on democratizing finance. Lastly, GameFi projects are aimed at creating enjoyable video games with native utility given to gamers.

Judging Timeline:

The judging began on August 1 at 9 a.m. EDT and will end on August 11 at 5 p.m. EDT. As mentioned earlier, TRON DAO users can take part in the voting process to help award the community favorite prize. Check out TRON DAO Forum to learn more about how to vote. The forum Hackathon poll is also live for everyone to view here.

Future Hackathons:

With the growing demand and success of our Hackathons, we intend on creating many more in the near future. An increase in applicants, prizes, partners, and judges are all a major goal for TRON DAO. TRON believes in creating incentives for projects to attain, as that inspires future pioneers to utilize our trusted network. TRON also believes in a virtuous cycle of supporting developers and projects to innovate on our blockchain as it helps onboard more users to the ever expanding TRON ecosystem.
