The History of Hackathons: A Digital Evolution | Hacker Noon

The Bitcoin Bankathon challenges teams of coders, designers, and problem-solvers to build Bitcoin-enabled banking applications that can unlock access to improved financial services for the people of El Salvador.

Over the course of 3 weeks — starting virtually on November 19th and ending both online and optionally on-site in El Salvador on December 8th – developers will face any of the following 5 challenges: Build the next neobank, Redesign remittances, Battle climate change, Empower women and Empower merchants.

There are $150,000 in prizes to be distributed in BTC by the organizers of API3 and the Open Bank Project, under the auspices of the Bitcoin Alliance.
