Neo has opened registration for the Ho Chi Minh City GAS Station, the second in a series of offline events as part of the APAC Hackathon. The Ho Chi Minh City GAS Station, a two-day hackathon weekend, will take place Aug. 12 and 13 at Asiana Plaza (Bình Thạnh), located at 45-47 Phan Đăng Lưu, Phường 3, Bình Thạnh, Thành phố Hồ Chí Minh 700000, Vietnam.

This event offers a platform for Web3 enthusiasts to participate in panel discussions and Web3 workshops, and compete for prizes.

GAS Station

Participants who attend GAS Stations as part of the Neo APAC Hackathon will compete to win one of two US $5,000 prizes and an invitation to attend the Hong Kong finale, complete with a $1,000 travel grant. Those who make it through to Hong Kong will compete for one of five $10,000 prizes and the opportunity to share in a $1 million post-hackathon grant fund.

The two-day GAS Station event consists of:

  • Day 1 (Aug. 12): An introductory workshop on developing on Neo, a panel discussion, and a hackathon that includes teamwork and mentoring sessions.
  • Day 2 (Aug. 13): A second workshop on scaling blockchains with rollups and zero-knowledge proofs, a developer-focused work session, and a project demo session with Q&A, review, winner announcements, and celebrations.

Registration is mandatory for those who wish to attend the event, and all participants must be 18 or older. Anyone unable to attend a GAS Station in person can still participate in the overall APAC Hackathon event by registering and submitting projects online.
