What is it
The hackathon muñón is a decentralized hackathon where there are no judges. Instead, every participant rate each other with the help of a peer reviewing smart contract on Ethereum. We have a first version ready now live on mainnet and the event will be held in July 6th from 8am to 8pm (-6 GMT).
It all started around 2013, at our local tech community in Honduras. We wanted to experiment with an alternative hackathon where convincing a judge or winning a first place is not incentivised. We wanted to focus on sharing, learning and hacking. Since then we have done 4 events like this and we want our 5th event to be simplified with the help of an smart contract.
To participate, everyone pays an entry fee that goes directly to a pot. At the end of the event, everyone rate each other and the pot gets distributed proportionally to every participant perception of each other.
Who are we
At the moment, we are getting participants registered and sponsors on board. Thanks to our supportive local tech community we secured the venue, food and some extra pot. The event will be held in two separate cities with 2 different pots: San Pedro Sula and Tegucigalpa. That’s why we created a smart contract to help sponsors available here. Our sponsorship dapp splits your contribution directly to the corresponding pots, 50% to San Pedro Sula and 50% to Tegucigalpa.
This is very experimental, that’s why we want to keep it small and simple before we scale things up. However your support would be very appreciated. Everyone can donate to the pot, but with around 0.1 eth put directly to the pot we can add your name or logo to our sponsors list, more will be very welcome to!
More importantly, feedback, code audit, PRs, ideas, swag etc… very welcome!
We, as BUIDL Honduras, love what you guys are doing, have learned from what you have built and we are considering converting into an Aragon DAO. We think you can add a lot of value to what we are doing.
