The hackathon participants will be pursuing two goals:

  • Design an idea that can be served by NEO’s digital economy;
  • Create a prototype of a smart contract implementation for the service on the NEO blockchain using Python, C#, or Javascript

NSPCC announced that “The best teams will form ready-made startups that can take part in live projects. And also will receive measures of support from the business community, the urban environment and the state.” Winners will also receive shares of a NeoGAS prize pool, equal in value to US $5,000.

NSPCC is serving as the technical judge of the event. Results will be announced on the evening of December 9th, 2018.
