ABGA & Klaytn Blockchain Gaming Hackathon 2022 Starts!

Blockbuster! ABGA & Klaytn Blockchain Gaming Hackathon 2022 Starts! Sharing a Bright Future in Web3 World!

We believe that Blockchain Gaming is a track that can bring fresh blood and vitality to the crypto world and can detonate the next round of cyclical prosperity. More and more traditional game developers and companies are paying attention and have begun to deploy Blockchain Gaming, and imaginative new game modes attract more and more traditional players. Blockchain Gaming is not just about GameFi and P2E; perhaps, a new Blockchain Gaming model is brewing.

The hackathon aims to unleash the potential of the gaming industry through blockchain technology, empowering and unlocking untapped potential beyond the Blockchain Gaming circuit, metaverse and NFT space. ABGA hopes to accelerate the development of Web 3.0 while promoting the Blockchain Gaming ecosystem and investing in future blue-chip Blockchain Gaming projects! This hackathon will have six types of awards (a total of ten slots). The first, second, and third prizes and special awards will be determined based on the participating teams’ submitted materials. The total prize pool includes $90,000 in cash provided by Klaytn and $2 Million in investment. The winning team will be invited to participate in the Blockchain Gaming 2022 Summit held by ABGA in Marina Bay Sands, Singapore, on September 26-27.
