One of Asia’s biggest blockchain events is set to take place in a few weeks and will feature an eight-day hackathon.
Morpheus Labs organized the competition in collaboration with Huawei and Blockchain Association Singapore.
The project says the hackathon aligns with its vision of blockchain technology as an indispensable tool for education, unlocking opportunities for developers across Asia.
A grand prize including cash, Huawei Cloud credits and a laptop will be awarded to the winner, and there will also be second and third place prizes.
It will all start on July 20, when participants will have the chance to start socializing and brainstorming together.
They will have until 11:59 p.m. on July 24 to deliver a video demo, an unmissable pitch that illustrates their concept in action.
Judging will take place on July 26 and 27, and an awards ceremony will be held to crown the winners on July 28.
Pei-Han, CEO of Morpheus Labs, told Cointelegraph, “This hackathon gives budding and experienced blockchain developers – and even those with no blockchain experience – a stage to hone and show off their skills. “
“We are very excited about the hackathon, as it has been endorsed by many companies, and the number of registrations for the hackathon has been more than encouraging.”
He added that Morpheus Labs and BAS have worked together “many times” since 2017, with more events planned for the not-too-distant future.
Discover the future of Web3
The hackathon is described as “the ultimate event for blockchain developers”, with over 1,000 attendees. Along with insights from industry experts and a series of educational courses, it will also give executives a chance to discover the latest talent in the rapidly changing Web3 space.
Competitors will be able to work on a plethora of cutting-edge projects in a special Web3 sandbox, whether it’s designing a decentralized autonomous organization that fosters innovation, connecting non-fungible token applications to real businesses, or to create a decentralized application that provides a smoother user experience through decentralized identities. Technology that addresses the 16 United Nations Social Development Goals will also be viewed favorably.
As you’d expect, “Web3 and Beyond” is the theme for Singapore Blockchain Week 2022, and it’s being held at the Sands Expo and Convention Center. With appearances from the Monetary Authority of Singapore’s Chief Financial Technology Officer, Sopnendu Mohanty, and United States Securities and Exchange Commission Commissioner, Hester Peirce, this is shaping up to be a news event.
Defend your platform
Morpheus Labs hopes the hackathon will also provide a showcase for its platform, and the project has been proactive in onboarding new customers and partners.
The KuCoin exchange and KuCoin Labs are also on board as event partners, further enhancing the event.
Morpheus is now collaborating with Sleep Future, a blockchain-based sleep wellness ecosystem that aims to promote users’ sleep quality through data analysis and recommendations.
It has also signed a memorandum of understanding with Avadore, and Morpheus Labs infrastructure will play a leading role in an upcoming blockchain metaverse project for the dating industry – among the first of its kind.
GEEQ, 5ireChain, Numen and ChainUp are just a few of the other Morpheus Labs clients.
When it comes to partnerships, Morpheus Labs says it was driven by creating an ecosystem that delivers real utility to customers.
And no doubt even more compelling partnerships will emerge at this upcoming hackathon, not least because this tech sector is only scratching the surface of what Web3 can achieve.
