About this event
See https://cosmos.network/hackatom for detail
HackAtom is seeking individuals and teams worldwide for a $50k hackathon from June 9 – July 9, 2017. Participants will turn innovative ideas into working applications, with rewards from the Cosmos community.
HackAtom is four weeks long. You'll build a real product while the crypto and blockchain communities watch and cast their vote on the project that captures their imagination. Tell the story behind your innovative idea, turn it into a working product, get other members to join, and build something cool!
This event would be available to everyone irrespective of location, sex, age, compute power, etc. Not everyone lives in a city that provides and nurtures technology the way Silicon Valley does. This event will give anyone, anywhere an opportunity to share their skills with the world and be recognized. So it does not matter if you are an individual in a remote part of the world or someone who lives down the street from Cosmos' office…everyone can participate, have fun and demonstrate their creativity.
- 1st Prize Winner $20,000
- 2nd Prize Winner $10,000

We know some rules are meant to be broken, but you should probably (read: definitely) stick by these:
Fresh Code No one is allowed to come in and build on top of previous projects. It’s cool to work on designs beforehand, digital mockups, open source frameworks, and anything else available to everyone, but keep things within fair limits.
Code Review Winning teams may be subject to a code-review at some point following the event or immediately before winning. This is to ensure that all code used is in fact fresh.
Ownership and IP Teams have full ownership of everything they build at our events and are free to do with it as they wish.
Team Size No more than five people.
Submissions Each hackathon has its individual hackathon.io page where projects will be submitted. Instructions will arrive in your inbox during the hackathon, and will be gone over during the event.
