Season 3 of The TRON Grand Hackathon: Get Ready for the #HackaTRON

September 19, 2022

TRON DAO and BitTorrent Chain (BTTC) are excited to announce Season 3 of the TRON Grand Hackathon 2022. This season is focused on expanding upon the success of Season 2, when we had over 1800 participants with over 200 projects. We intend on keeping that momentum moving forward. 

In Season 3, we are increasing our overall prize pool from $1 million to $1.2 million. The same 4 tracks will be available for participants, and 2 new tracks will be introduced.

The returning tracks will have a total of 5 winners chosen by members of the TRON community as well as 5 winners chosen by the judges. There will be 5 winners for the Academy track along with 5 “honorable mention” winners. The Ecosystem track will feature 10 winners, 5 for creative based projects and another 5 for technical based projects. The ecosystem we will be featuring this season is Ethereum, both the PoS chain after the Merge, and the other forked PoW chains such as EthereumPoW. We welcome all ETH projects to come explore the TRON ecosystem via BTTC or other cross-chain solutions.
