Join us at the 1st RSK Hackathon in Bangkok @ KX Knowledge Exchange!

If you are a developer ready to be challenged and interested in blockchain tech and decentralised apps this is a great opportunity to show your skills while learning from one of the leading blockchain projects in the world (RSK)!

The weekend will kick off on Saturday morning with an introduction to smart contract development with RSK, the smart contract platform secured by the Bitcoin blockchain.

Teams will then have until Sunday 4pm to code and will present on Sunday afternoon to a jury consisting of head of software development, RSK co-founder Gabriel Kurman, RSK Tech Community Coordinator Alejandro Banzas, Tokenomi founder Alexis Nicosia, Blockchain investor and Coinsilium CEO Eddy Travia.

We will also present MESG an application-building infrastructure that makes it easy for developers to combine any technologies together, including blockchains, web APIs or any other technology that sends and receives data.

Because it’s easy to combine technologies, developers can build apps using any of their favorite tools or platforms, such as RSK, while also increasing their app’s functionality, compatibility and efficiency by using MESG.

MESG is open-source, event-driven and decentralized, allowing developers to share and reuse code to assemble applications without the busy work.

Do I need a team?
