  • 冠军将获得50万美元的奖金
  • 全球共有19个队伍参加决赛
  • 其中有三支来自非洲的队伍

2018年12月3日,开普敦讯:本周,突破性的EOSIO区块链协议的发行方Block.one将在开普敦举行EOS全球黑客马拉松决赛。公司的风投部门(EOS VC)将在12月7日给冠军队伍提供50万美元的奖金。

今年EOS黑客马拉松已经在世界上五块大陆上举办了比赛,共有1724人次参赛,开普敦这场是这系列比赛的决赛。决赛之后,EOS VC将为这系列比赛颁发共计150万美元的奖金。

本周,前面几次比赛的19支冠军队伍将参加决赛,其中有3支非洲队伍—他们都来自肯尼亚—这三支队伍是上个月Block.one非洲虚拟黑客马拉松的获奖队伍。

决赛以孵化周的形式进行,这个期间选手们要参加一个七天的密集活动:他们要参加专家会谈、参与研讨,学习重要的商业和区块链话题。

  • 孵化周每天的主题不同:
  • 第一天—商业评论
  • 第二天—消费者分析
  • 第三天—区块链/代币
  • 第四天—评价标准
  • 第六天—投资人关系
  • 第七天—Demo和颁奖

具体的研讨话题包括:了解你的客户、代币生态系统、财务模、投资人策略等。Block.one还会派出导师传授关于产品开发和形成融资pitch,每天他们上完课会收到导师的反馈。

比赛的高潮是展示日,当天,参赛者要展示他们这个期间制作出来的基于区块链的应用。

总冠军会由国际评委团选出,这个裁判团还包括全球科技和区块链的领军人物。

冠军应该满足以下标准:是否是可持续的商业模式,其规模是否可以随外界投资增长而增长;是否有足够大的市场;是否能够成为规模化的区块链商业模式;展示的pitch和demo的质量、实际应用能力以及解决现有问题的能力。

 “我们相信区块链能够重新定义网络和社会,”Block.one的主席Rob Jesudason说。“EOSIO创造的系统能够让生意变得更加安全、安稳和透明,为大规模采用区块链技术铺平道路。它在改变现在商业和通讯方面中心化模式的潜力非常巨大。”

决赛评委名单

  • Rob Jesudason, Block.one 总裁
  • Dan Larimer, Block.one CTO
  • Nichole Yembra, Venture Garden 集团CFO
  • Mark Levitt, Trixta CEO, Gyft.com前联合创始人
  • Chris Folayan, Mall for Africa CEO和创始人
  • Alan Cloete,德意志银行亚洲分行前CEO
  • Titi Odunfa Adeoye, Sankore Investments创始人和总经理
  • James Hedley, Quicket创始人和经理

Demo和颁奖仪式都会在12月7日举行,但是6号参赛者可以离开会场,参加Block.one赞助的植树活动。

植树活动体现了Block.one对环保事业的热情,它也符合Block.one在开发EOSIO区块链协议的方针,这个协议因为使用的委托权益证明(DPoS)机制且不需要挖矿获得代币,所以它比同类区块链技术更节能。

  • Top prize of US$500,000 to be awarded to winner
  • 19 finalists from across the globe to compete
  • Three African teams among finalist

Cape Town, 3 December, 2018 — Block.one, publisher of the ground-breaking EOSIO blockchain protocol, kicked off the Grand Finale of its EOS Global Hackathon series in Cape Town this week, with its EOS Venture Capital (EOS VC) business unit set to award US$500,000 to one winning team on December 7.

The Cape Town event is the finale of the EOS Global Hackathon series, which has been held in five continents around the world this year, and has involved a total of 1,724 participants. Following the final event, EOS VC will have awarded US$1.5 million in prize money in the series.

A total of 19 teams from the previous EOS hackathons will be competing this week, with three African teams — all from Kenya — joining as finalists from the Block.one Africa virtual hackathon held last month.

The Grand Finale involves an Incubation Week, an intensive seven-day program in which finalists attend expert talks and sessions to learn more about important business and blockchain topics.

Each day of the Incubation Week has a theme:

  • Day 1— Business Review
  • Day 2 — Customer Insight
  • Day 3 — Blockchain / Token
  • Day 4— Success Metrics
  • Day 6 — Investor Relations
  • Day 7 — Demo Day and Awards Ceremony

Specific session topics include: know your customer, token ecosystems, financial modeling, and investor strategy, among others. Participants will also receive daily coaching and feedback from Block.one mentors on product development and how to formulate investment pitches.

The event will culminate in a Demo Day where finalists will showcase blockchain-based applications they have been working on and compete for the grand prize.

A panel of international judges, including global technology and blockchain leaders, will select the winner.

The winning project will be chosen based on the following criteria: whether it has a sustainable business model that can grow with outside investment; if it has a market large enough to succeed; the feasibility of its use as a scalable blockchain business; the quality of the presentation pitch and demo and its real-world application and the ability to solve an existing problem.

“We believe blockchain will redefine the Internet and society,” said Block.one President Rob Jesudason. “EOSIO will ease the path to adoption of blockchain technology by creating a system that makes doing business more safe, secure and transparent. The potential to change existing centralized models of commerce and communication is exponential.”

List of finale judges

  • Rob Jesudason, Block.one President
  • Dan Larimer, Block.one Chief Technology Officer
  • Nichole Yembra, CFO of Venture Garden Group
  • Mark Levitt, CEO of Trixta, Former Co-Founder of Gyft.com
  • Chris Folayan, CEO and Founder of Mall for Africa
  • Alan Cloete, Former CEO of Deutche Bank Asia
  • Titi Odunfa Adeoye, Founder and Managing Director of Sankore Investments
  • James Hedley, Founder and Director of Quicket

Ahead of the Demo Day and awards ceremony on December 7, finalists will also have the opportunity on December 6 to participate in a Block.one-sponsored off-site tree planting exercise.

The tree-planting is part of Block.one’s commitment to the environment and is in-keeping with its approach to the development of the EOSIO blockchain protocol, which is also more energy-efficient than other blockchains, due to its use of the Delegated Proof of Stake (DPoS) consensus mechanism and the absence of digital token mining on the blockchain.

The teams competing in the finale are:
