Introducing techFiesta: World’s First Blockchain-Powered Hackathon Platform

EkoLance is set to launch techFiesta, the world's first blockchain-powered hackathon platform that will revolutionize the way companies conduct hackathons and streamline all the time-consuming administrative tasks. Since the first-ever hackathon in June 1999, these intensive events have gained immersive popularity. Over 80% of Fortune 100 businesses run hackathons frequently, with 50% of those being recurring events. Giant tech companies like Microsoft and Facebook have rolled out various products and features that originated from hackathons. This indicates that hackathons are a reliable tool for companies to power up innovations and sustain them.


However, organizing a successful hackathon can be chaotic for companies, from managing participant registration to miscommunication about project expectations, and submissions to ensuring secure payment processing. That's where techFiesta comes in. We utilized the blockchain technology developed by HUMAN Protocol, which is audited and secure to build a secure and transparent platform for hackathons, eliminating the need for cumbersome and manual processes. With techFiesta, your company can take the chaos out of running your next hackathon and focus on driving innovation and progress.


“Hosting a successful hackathon can be a daunting task, but at techFiesta, it won't be so. Our blockchain-powered platform not only provides a seamless experience but also ensures the utmost security and transparency in the hackathon process. Whether you are a startup or a Fortune 100 business, techFiesta is the solution to your hackathon needs.”— Maria Eneva-Olms, CEO of EkoLance
