EkoLance is excited to announce that techFiesta, its developer activation platform will be used for the management of the first edition of the European Blockchain Convention (EBC) hackathon. The hackathon is set to take place in Barcelona, Spain, during the 9th edition of the European Blockchain Conference (EBC), the most influential blockchain event in Europe. This event kicks off on October 24 till October 26, 2023, and is expected to attract over 200 hackers, 20 mentors, and 50 teams.


The theme of the hackathon is "Hack'A Thon" and it offers an unparalleled opportunity for the participants to network, partake in enlightening EBC live sessions, embark on technical project development, and build lasting memories.

The hackathon focuses on blockchain, crypto, DeFi, Web3, NFTs, Gaming, and the metaverse industry, presenting an opportunity for hackers to win prizes of up to €50,000.


“We're super excited to host this first edition of the EBC Hackathon and felt it was the next logical step given that developers are the backbone of this industry. In past editions of EBC, we successfully held the startup competition to support upcoming startups in the industry in addition to the actual Convention. Overall we are very committed to supporting the industry builders. We're proud to have EkoLance as a strategic partner for our hackathon given their solid platform, techFiesta and all the support included in their proposal. Tools like these add value to the industry and we look forward to hosting upcoming and future hackathons on techFiesta.”—Victoria Gago, Co-Founder of EBC


During this groundbreaking event, techFiesta serves as the infrastructure platform for the hackathon where the hackers will view all hackathon details and submit their projects. At the same time, the hackathon sponsors can review the submissions and all hackathon KPIs on their techFiesta dashboard. techFiesta also provides a payment processing option for the hackathon bounties on chain.


“We are thrilled to have partnered with EBC to manage their Hack'A Thon. techFiesta is the perfect platform for this event as we provide the essential infrastructure for in-person hackathons and a possibility for the sponsors to have a quick overview of the hackathons’ results and KPIs.”—Maria Eneva-Olms, CEO of EkoLance


The European Blockchain Convention's Hack'A Thon exemplifies the epitome of innovation and collaboration within the Web3 sphere. This event not only offers a platform for hackers to showcase their skills but also propels advancements in the blockchain industry. EBC's commitment to fostering such initiatives is laudable, and techFiesta is proud to be an integral part of this journey. We anticipate that this hackathon will leave a lasting impact, nurturing a community of builders who will drive the industry forward, and harness the potential of blockchain technology to create transformative solutions for a better future.
