Winners

First place
Kosice Hack Token

The first prize at the sixth instance of the Blockchain Pioneers Hackathons series went to three diligent high-school programmers who came up with a project, entitled “Kosice Hack Token”, or KHT, for short. KHT enables anyone from the Kosice region, located in Eastern Slovakia, to create their own, investment-free tokens that can be used in particular institutions. These businesses can subsequently reward those who undergo certain activities (e.g., blood donation, voluntary activities, etc.) with discounts. The institutions themselves, however, may also benefit from using KHT in terms of receiving non-financial perks from the local authorities. The young blockchain innovators found their inspiration among their numerous experiences with volunteering, believing that modernization of their region can enhance the potential in local communities of students and companies alike.
