The latest series of the EOS Global blockchain Hackathon has just concluded in Sydney Australia, featuring even more exciting projects than the previous one.

The EOS Global Hackathon Series is a first-of-its-kind Blockchain event that serves Block.one’s goal of supporting a decentralized global community from the ground up.

With over 200 international participants coming from 50 teams, an Australian duo called SmartPress came out as the winner, taking home a prize pool of US$100,000 after a 26 hours long programming time. 

SmartPress developed an EOSIO-based web app that enables people with limited technical skills to design and deploy smart contracts to be used with existing or new applications. The judges were impressed when the team successfully presented how the idea can be used via an environmental boundary mapping tool to answer the challenge of “creating a DApp on the EOSIO platform that empowers the public to play a role in sustaining natural environments for the future.”

Coming second is another Australian team who received US$25,000 for their creativity. The team developed a blockchain app that aims to prevent local and global food wastage through supply chain management. Another Australian team created a  gamified app designed to empower Millennials to be more engaged in the fight against deforestation in Australia by nurturing and tracking tree life cycles. The team came in third place with a prize pool of US$10,000.

This Sydney hackathon was the second out of five events that will be held around the world by Block.one. With a total prize of US$1.5 million, the company aims for the using of EOSIO code in blockchain applications (DApps) for real-world use cases. 

Top three winners of each round will compete in the Grand Finale Pitch in December.
