EthIndia was the first hackathon sponsored by the zkBob team in December of 2022. Prizes for builders totaled $10,000 BOB and were distributed to hackers who participated and used zkBob for stablecoin privacy in their applications. Some of our takeaways from this initial hackathon included:
- Privacy should be a fundamental aspect of finance, with the option to reveal information as needed. Thanks to technologies like zkBob, this is becoming a reality.
- The bear market was barely mentioned at ETHIndia, and we loved the enthusiasm of the builders there. We feel that the next generation of crypto coders has arrived.
- We need to step up our game when it comes to our booth and swag - some of the other participants at ETHIndia really raised the bar.
- Responsible privacy - privacy that is also compliant - will be a major trend in blockchain going forward.
Overall, we found the hackathon to be inspiring, and we're looking forward to a year of building and adoption.
