Geneva, Switzerland, 17th August, 2022, Chainwire
The TRON Grand Hackathon 2022 has announced Season 2 winners. The judging panel of industry experts, institutional professionals, and key opinion leaders were dazzled by the diversity and quality of submissions they received. With over 1800 participants for the aggregate bounty of $1 million spread between four tracks: Web3, NFT, GameFi, and DeFi, Season 2 has been a spectacular success.
There are two sets of winners: Hackathon Winners & Community-voted Winners. DevPost will have $765K of the prizes go to judges-voted projects and the TRON DAO Forum will have $235K of the prizes go to community-voted projects.
The TRON Grand Hackathon 2022 and the TRON DAO Forum are all about empowering the TRON DAO community. The decentralized web is all about putting power in the hands of the people.
The Hackathon will support the top track winners with various resources, including potential funding opportunities from the TRON and BTTC Ecosystem Fund, liquidity, and integration with partner exchanges.
The Hackathon Season 2 submission began on May 16 and ended on July 25. Contestants who were interested in winning extra TRON DAO Forum prizes were encouraged to submit their projects to the TRON DAO Forum early. Interactions with community members within their forum threads were considered while judging the projects.

About TRON DAO
TRON is dedicated to accelerating the decentralization of the internet via blockchain technology and decentralized applications (dApps). Founded in September 2017 by H.E. Justin Sun, the TRON network has continued to deliver impressive achievements since MainNet launch in May 2018. July 2018 also marked the ecosystem integration of BitTorrent, a pioneer in decentralized Web3 services boasting over 100 million monthly active users. The TRON network has gained incredible traction in recent years. As of August 2022, it has over 107 million total user accounts on the blockchain, more than 3.7 billion total transactions, and over $11.5 billion in total value locked (TVL), as reported on TRONSCAN. In addition, TRON hosts the largest circulating supply of USD Tether (USDT) stablecoin across the globe, overtaking USDT on Ethereum since April 2021. The TRON network completed full decentralization in December 2021 and is now a community-governed DAO. Most recently, the over-collateralized decentralized stablecoin USDD was launched on the TRON blockchain, backed by the first-ever crypto reserve for the blockchain industry – TRON DAO Reserve, marking TRON’s official entry into decentralized stablecoins.
