Stackathon is a female-run, 24-hour blockchain hackathon at STACK on November 24th-25th at the beginning of the annual Christmas Market. Located in the Distillery District, this event focuses on Level 2 scaling solutions to help make decentralized applications convenient to use. Our hackathon will consist of 50 hackers. Given the blockchain meetups happening frequently in Toronto, the blockchain community is incredibly strong and tight-knit. Our hackathon focuses on recruiting top talent in blockchain within the tech community, and building generic scaling tools which have the capability of benefiting the broader blockchain community.
This year alone, there have been a plenitude of ETH events, including ETHDenver and ETHBerlin. Despite the community, there seems to be a consistent lack of blockchain hackathons in the core of Toronto. Here at STK, we recognize the need and benefits of strengthening and developing our city’s blockchain community.
When the scalability problem with blockchain is solved, decentralized applications have the chance to change the world of technology. At STK, we want to help blockchain and cryptocurrency reach mass adoption. With scalability, we want our participants to work with solutions, not limited to side chains, state channels, sharding, and more.
Within this goal, we need experienced blockchain talent - and finding this is never easy. Real world and hands-on experience with the technology is far and few between. At Stackathon, we aim to find the best developers in the ecosystem.You’ll be able to network with top talent in the industry. We advocate for advancing participants’ skillsets, pushing them outside their comfort zone, to be able to build the next best scaling solution on blockchain.
Dedicated programs and hackathons run by experienced individuals can play a major role in shaping and influencing the future of the Toronto blockchain scene. If you want to be a part of the excitement, contact us!
