techFiesta, World's First Blockchain-Powered Hackathon Platform, Is Live

techFiesta, the world’s first blockchain-powered hackathon platform, is live. This innovative hackathon platform was built by EkoLance in collaboration with HUMAN Protocol.

techFiesta - World's first blockchain-powered hackathon platform is live. Join now to participate in collaborative tech events and earn rewards.

We are proud to announce our official launch, accompanied by an inaugural hackathon with HUMAN Protocol that promises to challenge the boundaries of innovation. As the world's first platform of its kind, techFiesta sets out to revolutionize the hackathon landscape by providing an immersive and collaborative environment for developers and technology enthusiasts globally.

Hackathons play a vital role in the tech industry. A report by Research and Market projected that the hackathon software market will reach USD 292.2 million by 2026 with a CAGR of 8% during the forecast period. These events offer developers an invaluable opportunity to innovate, learn, and collaborate. However, despite their numerous benefits, participating in hackathons can pose challenges for developers. Many face issues like delayed payments, lack of adequate support, difficulty in finding innovative companies to work with, and limited resources.

These challenges often lead to frustration and disillusionment among developers, impacting their willingness to engage in future hackathon events. At EkoLance, we recognize and empathize with these concerns, and as a result, we have taken proactive measures to address them. Our platform goes beyond merely connecting developers with innovative companies and protocols in the industry. We have designed a system that ensures a swift and secure payment in stablecoins through smart contracts built by HUMAN Protocol, eliminating payment delays and providing developers the peace of mind to focus on what they do best - creating groundbreaking applications - without unnecessary worries associated with hackathon participation.

"We are elated to unveil this groundbreaking hackathon platform, leveraging the power of blockchain to unlock endless possibilities. Our mission is to create an ecosystem that empowers innovators, nurtures talent, and drives the advancement of technology through collaborative efforts."— Maria Eneva-Olms, CEO & Founder of techFiesta

How techFiesta Works

techFiesta's groundbreaking approach to hackathons lies in its seamless integration with the HUMAN Protocol. This partnership ensures a fair, efficient, and transparent process for hackathon participants and organizers alike.

The HUMAN Protocol empowers "Requesters," the companies sponsoring hackathons, to launch hackathons online in the form of "Jobs." These Jobs represent the challenges and tasks that developers will undertake to create solutions. The company creates a smart bounty filled with stablecoins, which serve as the reward pool for the developers' efforts.

Upon completion of the tasks, developers' submissions undergo evaluation by the hackathon sponsors to ensure the quality and accuracy of the work. Once approved, payments are automatically processed to the winners on-chain using HUMAN Protocol's secure and audited blockchain infrastructure. This streamlined payment system guarantees that developers receive their rightful compensation promptly.
