Shock The Web 2 is BOLT FUN’s follow up to its debut Bitcoin Lightning Network hackathon held this past March, meant to on-board new builders into the ecosystem.
Beginning on Thursday, June 16, Shock The Web 2 will be a free, four-day long hackathon. BOLT aims to leverage the event to make design and development on Bitcoin more accessible by onboarding builders with educational content, mentorship, fun, and prizes.
The first day will focus on Lightning workshops, discussions, talks, and other fun activities led by industry experts and thought leaders. Once participants, or hackers, have a taste for Lightning development, they will be set loose with freedom and mentorship to design and build either their own individual products, or with a team.
On Friday, hackers should be ready and eager to work on their projects throughout the weekend and mentors will be available for guidance. Come Sunday, from 17:00 – 19:00 UTC, participants will present their projects for a chance to win over $2,500 in bitcoin prizes.
