IOTA Flash Hackathon – Winners Announced
The following is a guest post by IOTA Hardware
The Flash Hackathon started in November 2017, participants were asked to build solutions that utilise Flash to solve unique and useful problems. With some exciting ‘real world’ project ideas underway and cash prizes including $15,000 for first place up for grab, the community was eager to see the outcome.
Winners were announced today, FogNet taking first place which uses payment channels in resource and bandwidth restricted environments to exchange data for instant payments.
