On September 4-6, Bitcoin Cash engineers will be holding the third annual developers’ conference dubbed “BCH Devcon III.” More than 30+ bitcoin cash ($8,300) will be available in prizes for winning teams who participate in the 72-hour hackathon.
The event’s website explains that the community of programmers will gather for 72 non-stop hours of hacking and all the participants can compete for the top prizes.
Similarly to the voting process used in the past, BCH Devcon will leverage project votes from sponsors via the Simple Ledger Protocol. Additionally, prizes will be airdropped via a SLP dividend calculation tool.
On Friday, September 4th, 2020 at 00:00 UTC, the hackathon coding will begin and the event will kick off with a live stream of the event.
