We’re proud to introduce BitHack V2, our second online competition for developers building innovative apps with bitcoin. No 24h time limit. Participate from anywhere. $70,000 worth of prizes.
To participate in BitHack, all you need to do is:
Note: Use of the Coinbase API is not required - you can build in any way on top of bitcoin! (Although we think it is a great option.)
Top 5 apps will be rewarded with bitcoin, and one winner will receive an appointment to an upcoming BoostVC bitcoin accelerator class, valued at $50,000.
Here are the prizes:
* As valued on date of announcement.
Update: 6 additional partner prizes are now available!
Don't just create another wallet (unless it has a new twist!) We want to see apps that make bitcoin easy to use, and show off new use cases that aren't possible with existing payment methods.
We're looking for apps that make bitcoin more approachable for a mainstream audience. How can bitcoin go viral, or reach 100M new people in the coming years?
We're looking for apps that work well. It should be clear that you care about providing a good user experience, but we're not requiring polish or perfection.
For some ideas on what to build, see this blog post.
Apps will be judged by a team of Coinbase subject-matter experts, along with guest judges Adam Draper (BoostVC), Chris Dixon (Andreessen Horowitz), Fred Wilson (Union Square Ventures), and Gavin Andresen (Chief Scientist, Bitcoin Foundation).
