Winners from the #MakeitMobile Hackathon
The Celo Foundation is excited to announce the winners of the #MakeitMobile Hackathon (March 5- April 14) supported by Gitcoin, a platform for developers to learn, earn and build crypto applications. The goal of the 6-week virtual hackathon was to encourage developers to build mobile-first DeFi DApps on Celo, furthering the Celo community mission to make the world of crypto more accessible for everyone.
The #MakeitMobile Hackathon attracted 600 participants from 75 countries, resulting in 25 high quality DApp submissions for the DeFi prize. 10 comprehensive tutorials were submitted through a collaborative bounty hosted by our friends at Figment Learn. The Celo Foundation distributed 20 awards to the winning teams totaling over 60,000 cUSD in prizes. This hackathon demonstrated that a protocol focused on making solutions accessible via smartphones attracts a global community of builders who are motivated to build accessible solutions.
