Geneva, Switzerland, August 20, 2018 – While big companies are constantly searching for use cases that would justify the implementation of blockchain into their system, hackathons act as a tool to deliver functioning blockchain projects and concepts in an accelerated time period. These competitive events are designed to inspire revolutionary projects, rapidly evaluate viability, and give them a jumpstart on the road to realization.
DECENT, an international blockchain company, has organized two highly successful hackathons this year as part of its Blockchain Pioneers Hackathon global series. Both events, in Bratislava and Berlin respectively, have brought eminently promising projects to the table, namely Werbifi and Fashion Block.
Operating on a global scale, DECENT has decided to give its hackathon series an upgrade this time by extending it not only to China but also the USA, with both hackathons taking place at the same time.
DECENT’s own proprietary blockchain platform, DCore, is the main tool used in its hackathons and has elevated the company to stand on the cutting edge of the blockchain industry. It is also one of the fastest performing blockchain platforms in the world (2000+ transactions per second).
