Pocket Network Partners with Klaytn for the KlayMakers22 Virtual Hackathon

We’re proud to announce that Pocket Network will be teaming up with Klaytn as a Community Partner for their upcoming virtual hackathon!

KlayMakers22 will be an engaging event where Web3 developers can build in the Klaytn ecosystem, and Web2 developers can dip their toes into the blockchain world. The hackathon has a specific focus on building enhancement features to the core protocol, DApps and use cases for the ecosystem, and important research to drive Klaytn forward.

As a Community Partner, Pocket will be engaging with and helping to educate the developer community during the event.

The registration period will run from today through the next 2 weeks, with the hackathon itself scheduled for August 29th through September 30th.

Note: Pocket Network recently launched Klaytn as a supported chain – if you’re a developer looking to build on Klaytn, make sure to get set up with one of our Klaytn endpoints via the Pocket Portal!
