With the support of our sponsors and the great turn out, we are pleased to say #Dappathon KL 2018 was a huge success! #Dappathon KL - is the very first Decentralized Application centric hackathon in Malaysia that drew a total of 156 participants divided into teams of 3 to 5 with the sole purpose to build a decentralized application aimed to solve day-to-day problems. Teams had to survive two stages of pitching, first with the mentors, where only 6 teams would come through, then the second where the judges choose the winners.


The teams had only 24 hours to finish their decentralized applications and prep for their presentation to the mentors, and conclusively, with a curious audience, to the judges. 


A few world-class industry leaders joined the #Dappathon as mentors and judges, such as Bobby Ong, Co-founder of CoinGecko, Matthew Tan, the CEO from Etherscan, Eric Jiang, the CTO of Dapp.com and many more. A few well-known organizations joined the #Dappathon as partners, such as MaGIC, HelloGold, Coingecko, PundiX, DOJO KL, Bitcoin Malaysia, Access Malaysia, and Redbull.


“We were curious about the depth of knowledge that people have regarding decentralized technology and we are hopeful that one day, we will be able to build it into another iOS or Android. So yeah, that’s why we started #Dappathon!” says Kyle Lu, the organizer and the CEO of Dapp.com.
