General Description

TRON DAO is thrilled to launch the 2022 Grand Hackathon. The future is not far from widespread decentralized storage, decentralized applications, digital assets, and cryptocurrency wallets. With the increasing use of decentralized, peer-to-peer, and secure networks, blockchain is becoming the backbone of Web 3.0 — the decentralized web. The TRON Grand Hackathon 2022 creates opportunities for unheard talents to make their marks and accelerate the development of Web 3.0 while promoting the growth of the blockchain ecosystem at the same time.

The TRON Grand Hackathon 2022 is an exciting opportunity for entrepreneurs, developers, and designers who have always wanted to build a smart contract or blockchain-related application. Furthermore, developing on BTTC would allow one to easily convert the developed application to work on different blockchain platforms such as TRON, Ethereum, BNB Chain, and other blockchain platforms in the near future.

You will be joining the Season Two of TRON Grand Hackathon 2022. Check out our TRON Grand Hackathon site for updates.
