NFT Hackathon for Artists and Developers
Celsius, the leading global cryptocurrency earning and borrowing platform, announced today it will be organizing its first hackathon in Belgrade on March 5-6, 2022.
The challenge of this first hackathon, officially named Celsius NFT Hackathon, will be exploring the use-cases of NFTs in Celsius’ fintech and DeFi products. The participants will learn about Celsius’ offering as well as NFTs and the technology behind them, followed by a 24 hour challenge where they will attempt to embed these cutting-edge technologies in the existing product stack. All artists, regardless of their technology background and experience (i.e. fine arts, graphic designers, 3D designers, etc.) along with software engineers are encouraged to apply to explore how this exciting new technology will shape the future of fintech.
Celsius will award three teams with the best ideas $5,000 worth of prizes – first place $2,500, second place $1,500, and third place $1,000.
“Since its foundation, Celsius has been on a mission to promote innovation in the fields of crypto, DeFi, CeFi and decentralized technologies. The emergence of NFTs is a new frontier for us to explore, one of which we have yet to scratch the surface of its full potential. We are excited to brainstorm with the community through this event,” said Nuke Goldstein, Co-Founder and Chief Technology Officer of Celsius.
The hackathon will be held on March 5-6, 2022 at Impact Hub Belgrade. Artists, developers, and NFT enthusiasts can apply until March 3, 2022 either as a team (up to 6 people) or individually via this form.
