Inaugural ZENCON a resounding success

Over 200 participants and attendees of the 68-Hour-Hackathon produced 24 projects across 5 categories on the newly introduced ZENIQ Smartchain. Conference to return next year.

It wasn’t only the views that were breathtaking. Once the virtual dust had settled, so were the results of the inaugural “ZENCON Technology Conference and Innovation Awards Hackathon” at the Grand Hyatt Hotel conference location in Playa del Carmen, Mexico.

Under a strict time limit of just 68 hours the attendees of the Hackathon event produced stunning results that made the high-caliber jury of Shahin Kamran (Vice President Blockchain Product Development & Innovation at Mastercard), Oderli Ferriani (CEO TUPAN.io a S.E.C regulated token), Rodrigo Espinosa (DIRECTOR at Greentech cluster & International Cleantech network), Mag. Erwin Dokter (CEO of ZENIQ(R) Technologies Ltd.) and Fernando Unzue (Business Technical Director in Data Loyalty) wonder if it would be fair to declare winners.

“We knew we arguably had some of the brightest minds in blockchain development on site here in Mexico. But then these hackers came storming out of the gates and the results were nothing short of spectacular,” said Dokter, co-founder of ZENIQ, the company behind ZENCON. “It’s exactly what we hoped for – an in-person event that would spark creativity and showcase what the ZENIQ Blockchain and Smartchain really are capable of.”

It is fair to say that the conference checked both boxes. In total, 200 developers and innovators attended the conference, making the inaugural event a resounding success. 24 projects were created across five categories. Eventually, the jury had to make a call and awarded these projects prizes ranging between 10,000 and 20,000 USD.

The second inaugural “ZENCON Technology Conference and Innovation Awards Hackathon” will be held in June 2023. The location will be announced at a later point in time.

CATEGORIES & WINNING PROJECTS

  • In the “Metaverse/Gaming” challenge, contrary to expectations, two extraordinarily exciting projects will share the $20,000 with $10,000 per project.
    • TeMe – An easier and more fun way to manage the information of the company’s employees (10.000$)
    • Netverse (A metaverse-project where the players can challenge each other for an amount of ZENIQ tokens) (10.000$)
  • In the “NFTs/Tokenization” challenge, the $20,000 prize money will be distributed to the N Farm project. N Farm is an NFT platform for the certification of food of animal origin that facilitates normative export.
  • In the Challenge “Decentralised Finance (DeFi) & Defi 2.0”, the $20,000 prize money goes to the True Commit project. The team builds accountability into finance and links investments directly to final purchases.
  • The $20,000 of “The world of Web 3.0/Tools & Infrastructure” Challenge was won by the team “Data Link”. The team focuses on incentives for data sharing and credential verification in the chain.
  • The category “B2B/B2C solutions on the ecosystem” presented a particularly exciting picture for all participants. The top prize of $20,000 went to DemeterGift. Their project focuses on fundraising as a service on the web3.

In addition, there were two special prizes that no one had expected. One was the Huitzil project, which simplifies the creation of smart contracts. The other was the FiDora project, which specialises in the decentralisation of real assets. Both projects were accepted into the ZENIQ Incubator Programme.
