Unleash Your Creativity at the Stacks x EasyA Bitcoin Builders Hackathon in London!
Published by Stacks Foundation Team on September 26, 2023
The Stacks x EasyA Bitcoin Hackathon promises to be one of London's most fascinating hackathons of the year! Best of all, it's happening right in the center of London. IRL. And following Bitcoin Unleashed.

The Stacks Foundation and Hiro have teamed up with EasyA to give away £20,000 to the best projects built at this hackathon. In just 36 hours, you could walk away with a massive prize that could help you launch the world's next unicorn application built on Bitcoin.

What's it all about?

Heard of Bitcoin? Probably. But did you know that you can build on top of Bitcoin? Probably not. (Until now!)

With Stacks, you create real applications on Bitcoin. Think building automated lending and borrowing applications, or ways for people to get mortgages, but with smart contracts secured by Bitcoin, bringing access to financial infrastructure to anyone, anywhere in the world. If you're already familiar with decentralized applications on blockchains like Ethereum, Stacks enables this exact thing but for Bitcoin, the largest and most secure asset available.

Various technical experts from across the Stacks ecosystem will be present to support builders and will be joined by other incredible members of the Bitcoin and blockchain community. Regardless of your experience level, we encourage you to attend. That includes non-programmers, this hackathon is open to everyone regardless of technical experience (whether it’s ideation, marketing or presenting) and there is a special prize allocated for non-coders!

Free to enter. Free food. Free code-level support available in-person 24/7. What’s the best that could happen? Sign up ASAP!
