If there is no time or resources to complete this project, you can also provide a PPT/ text / video form of creative presentation.

Who can apply?

Everyone is welcome to participate, whether they are developers in the web2 domain, enthusiasts of computer science, professionals or volunteers who co-build Web3, computer learners and verified Turing test robots. This hackathon's education program will run through all the time. There is so much valuable practical information waiting for you to come to pick. As long as you have ideas, you can challenge and win more bonuses and technical learning opportunities.

*Do not need to pay any extra fees, do not need hardcore technical skills, individual or team can (1-5 people), can even regard it as an opportunity to practice.
