Did you catch the Hackathon and MVP news from Hedera18? If not, here's the summary!

Hedera18 was Hedera's inaugural, global event helping to promote hashgraph, projects developed for the Hedera network, our community, and major community contributions, to name a few. Some of the newsworthy things to happen included the global hackathon, and the introduction of our first Ambassador MVPs for 2018/2019. Let's learn a bit more.

Sixty-seven teams competed in the first ever Hedera hackathon, on Oct 15-16th, in Bangalore, Dallas, London, Moscow, Paris, San Francisco, Singapore, and Tel Aviv. Winners from each location were then entered into judging for the grand prize of $50,000. The global winner was Payper, a Romania-based team that competed in the London hackathon. Payper enables web-based micropayments, a critical component of the open API economy. It was demonstrated using HTTP, making it easy for web developers to integrate into their applications. The team members were Alex Males, Eugen Males, Alexandru Popa, and Vlad Suciu. You can learn more about our Hedera18 Hackathon Global and regional winners below:
