【Concluded】Hackathon Event: Decentralize It! Win ZimaBoard 832 & $5200 USD

#:raised_hands: Decentralize It! :raised_hands: Win ZimaBoard 832 & $5200 USD

Hacker Marathon 2023 【AUG 1ST - OCT 8TH】


Join us to explore the integration of personal servers and decentralization in four exciting directions: local smart homes, decentralized network systems, decentralized file management, and distributed GPU computing nodes.

Participants will develop innovative solutions prioritizing user control, data privacy, and enhanced security. Collaboration, cutting-edge technologies, and ongoing support will drive progress and real-world viability.

Be part of “Decentralize It!” and shape the future of technology in an extended hackathon experience. Together, let’s revolutionize decentralization!

You have the option to use ZimaBoard hardware and CasaOS open-source software for your project, but it is not required. Feel free to explore other hardware and software options based on your preferences and expertise.

By participating in this hackathon event, you implicitly agree to allow the host and co-host to promote your project during and after the event.

Event Details

1. Proposed Competition Themes

:house: Local Smart Homes

Creating a decentralized service for intelligent home automation systems.

:spider_web: Decentralized Network Systems

Developing VPN and search engine solutions based on decentralized principles.

:open_file_folder: Decentralized File Management Systems

Building a reliable and secure decentralized platform for file management.

:globe_with_meridians: Distributed GPU Computing Nodes
