Welcome to Q2 of the 2024 BNB Chain Hackathon: One BNB – Coding the Future

In Q2 2024, we're thrilled to introduce the "One BNB – Coding the Future" hackathon, setting the stage for yet another exciting chapter in the evolution of blockchain technology!

The inception of opBNB and BNB Greenfield in 2023 marked the commencement of the “One BNB” multi-chain journey, accompanied by a wealth of ideas and feedback from the vibrant BNB Chain community. This theme now serves as the bedrock of our hackathon, reflecting BNB Chain's ongoing pursuit of pioneering blockchain solutions.

In addition to offering our thanks to our annual sponsors – Polyhedra Network, Dora Factory, DEGO Finance, TUSD, Sonorus and THENA – we also welcome new sponsors for this quarter: Baby Doge and Holoworld AI.

The BNB Chain 2024 Hackathon is your golden ticket to dive headfirst into the exhilarating realm of decentralized applications, where your ideas can spark tangible real-world transformations.🌟
