Telos Blockchain (ticker: TLOS), home to the world’s fastest, most inexpensive, energy efficient (Net Zero), non-congested, credibly neutral, truly decentralized and non-aiding and abetting (No front running / MEV) tEVM, is thrilled to announce the winners of the Telos Spark hackathon 2022!
The entire team is ecstatic by the number of entries received for the first Telos Spark Hackathon. There were 156 entries and 26 published projects; The team is proud and truly inspired by the traction of this initiative. So many great projects that the team allocated another 20k TLOS to add two more finalists. The judging of these projects ended up being an incredibly challenging task for the team due to all the quality entries. Especially because they were all promising and unique. The most prevalent common denominator that all these great projects had in common was the dedication by each individual team.
“These last couple of weeks have blown away all our expectations. Many quality projects are now growing deep roots within the tEVM, and they are loving it and we them. Lots of synergy here and lots of gravity to the speed, low fixed costs and credible neutrality of the tEVM. Telos is not just a hackathon chain. It is a perfect place to build high-performance, scalable and real-world-ready applications!”
Justin Giudici, CEO of the Telos Foundation
