Octaloop and Phala Network have joined hands for ‘Unblock-2022’, a virtual web3 hackathon, scheduled to run from 10th to 17th November 2022. Over 5000 developers have participated at Octaloop’s past events, who are expected to lock horns at their biggest hackathon that precedes ‘Metamorphosis-2022’, dubbed India’s largest crypto gala!
Phala Network, built on Substrate, is a part of the Polkadot ecosystem that envisions a world with serverless computing. They recognise the vices of the centralized systems today that have exposed us to data and privacy risks and given the managing companies infinite power over our personal and professional activities. Phala’s vision aligns with blockchain’s principles of decentralized and trustless systems.
Octaloop and the Indian developer community are devoted to upholding such noble ideas and their partnership with Phala for the Unblock Hackathon is indeed, naturally compatible. Unblock will not only bring Phala to the Indian community but also help develop advanced use cases around the substrate blockchain framework and peer-to-peer networks.
The enterprising developers in India will have an opportunity to build and express their ideas to the mentors at Unblock, chisel their strategies and disrupt the industry with improvised execution. The registrations for Unblock is live at https://unblock.devfolio.co/ and ends on 9th November at 23:59 hours. All the developers looking to break into web3 or rise up the food chain are invited to register. Beyond the name, fame and glory – there is a lot of cash at stake!
Unblock will pave the way for Metamorphosis-2022, beginning 19th November featuring some of the biggest names in the industry, developers, entrepreneurs, investors, regulators, entertainers and everything else.
