CoinGeek Seoul Conference Day 1 highlights

The CoinGeek Seoul conference kicked off Tuesday with plenty of energy—the energy in the Bitcoin SV (BSV) ecosystem. Founding President of the Bitcoin Association Jimmy Nguyen opened the event with a inspiring speech, “Bitcoin SV: It’s time to build,” and conference attendees were treated with not just a summary of what has been happening with BSV, but also an inspiring call to action to start the day.

Day 1 is all about the updates on the technical developments happening within the BSV space, starting with the much anticipated Genesis upgrade from nChain CTO Steve Shadders.

“Our goal is to bring the protocol back as close as possible to the original protocol as it designed by Satoshi, implemented by Satoshi ten years ago. Once it’s done, a whole lot of things that are not possible now will become possible again,” Shadders told CoinGeek.

Ryan X. Charles, meanwhile, is starting the movement on taking back our own data with four new upgrades to Paymail, an identity protocol for BSV.

“Right now we live in a world where Google and Facebook basically own your data on the internet, then they allow advertisers to sell targeted ads to you based on the data that they have about you. And so what we’ve done is to create new protocols on top of Bitcoin that we’ve implemented inside of Money Button. We can make it possible for you to, say, earn money for looking at ads rather than Facebook earning money for looking at ads,” Charles explained.

UptimeSV also provided some updates on what it has been up to since winning Bitcoin Association’s first BSV hackathon in May. UptimeSV’s Dean Little explained:

We released three things, one of them is already released—Polynym, which is basically a very easy way for you to write addresses to the desired receiver. The second thing is Unplanaria, which is kind of like a play on how Planaria handles things, but instead of going like wallet-miner-node, it goes wallet-node-miner, so it’s implementing BIP270 or peer-to-peer transactions but for apps and services. It’s a very efficient way of getting your data from your users and publishing it to the blockchain and it cost a lot less than some other methods.

Closing the day is the announcement of the second BSV Virtual Hackathon winner. Codugh, led by Shashank Singhal and Andrew Snow, won the US$20, 000 (paid in BSV) top prize, while Hive took second place and US$10,000 in BSV. BitQ&A came in third place with US$5,000 in BSV.


“I don’t think it’s quite hit us yet, certainly a bit of disbelief. It was only a few hours ago that we were pitching on stage so I think give it a few hours it will actually settle and we’ll realize what just happened,” Snow told CoinGeek.

For some attendees, the CoinGeek Seoul conference provided them with some great insights on the BSV ecosystem. University student Eun Gyu Jin wants to learn more about the technology, and his friend, Joo Mong Ko shared with CoinGeek the excitement they felt after hearing all the developments happening with BSV. Who’s their favorite speaker, we ask. The unanimous vote was, of course, Dr. Craig Wright.

Winners of 2nd BSV Hackathon announced at CoinGeek Seoul conference

After 48 hours of coding from August 17-19 and even more hours of preparation, the winners of the 2nd Bitcoin SV Virtual Hackathon were announced Tuesday. The theme of the second hackathon, organized by Bitcoin Association, focused on creating projects that would strongly encourage the new paradigm of earning and using Bitcoin SV (BSV). Participants were tasked to build applications that would allow inventive ways for ordinary users to use small amounts of BSV to gain value.

Winners of 2nd BSV Hackathon announced at CoinGeek Seoul conference


The hackathon reached its conclusion at the CoinGeek Seoul Conference, which is taking place from October 1-2. Three amazing projects were presented during Day 1 of the conference, and it was Codugh, led by Shashank Singhal and Andrew Snow, winning the US$20, 000 (paid in BSV) top prize. Hive took second place and US$10,000 in BSV, followed by BitQ&A in third place with US$5,000 in BSV.


Codugh is a solution designed to address a problem faced by all developers globally—a simple solution to monetize APIs. The platform connects API developers and API consumers, and each time a consumer makes a successful API call, they have to pay a microtransaction. This creates an unparalleled mechanism that encourages new developers to onboard into the BSV ecosystem.

Hive is a “beehive” that connects information added by individuals around the world. Every content node containing the information needs one or more linked nodes and for every link to a node, it has a dynamic cost. The users are notified when new content is added, and the information is fetched directly from the blockchain.

BitQ&A is an application where one can ask a question or answer the ones submitted by other people. Think Quora or StackOverflow with a Bitcoin-based incentive model. BitQ&A could be used as a general knowledge platform aimed at the general population, and also for specialized knowledge sites aimed at niche groups. A bounty is put on a question and payment is required to respond, so it encourages high-quality answers and alleviates spam. Answers are voted on and funds are distributed to the author of the best answer and previous voters.

The 2nd BSV Virtual Hackathon was a huge success and it will only encourage more developers and creators to build creative solutions that take advantage of the power of BSV scaling.

Bitcoin SV Vision: Episode 25

President of the Bitcoin Association Jimmy Nguyen is back with a new episode of the Bitcoin Vision, looking at the latest developments in the BSV ecosystem. In this episode, Nguyen looks at the latest progress in BSV’s journey as it continues to grow towards massive scale adoption, to meet the original whitepaper vision of bitcoin.

CambrianBSV Bootcamp

Many leaders from the development community came together for the CambrianBSV Bootcamp, a week-long intensive program for building on BSV, with a focus on applications generating transactions on the BSV blockchain.

Organized in partnership with the Bitcoin Association, the event took place in the idyllic surroundings of Bali, Indonesia, bringing together top BSV developers from around the world to share their knowledge.

Leading developers spend the week collaborating with and learning from their peers, with representatives from some of the world’s most notable BSV projects in attendance. Throughout the week, workshops from leading developers, as well as live video meetings with academics like nChain’s Dr. Craig Wright, helped the event get off to a flying start.

Nguyen said the Bitcoin Association was delighted to help with the event, and extended the invitation of support to other groups thinking about launching their own BSV bootcamps and events.

2nd BSV Virtual Hackathon

Nguyen discussed the 2nd BSV Virtual Hackathon, ahead of final judging at the CoinGeek Seoul Conference on October 1-2. During the event, the three finalists from the virtual hackathon held in August will be judged by a panel of industry experts plus the CoinGeek Seoul audience, to determine which project ultimately goes on to be declared the winner.

The judging panel for the event will be comprised of nChain CTO Steve Shadders and nChain chief scientist Dr. Craig Wright. They will be joined by Lin Zheming, CEO and founder of Mempool, as well as prolific tech investor and film producer Sam Chi.

Their votes will be combined with a single audience vote to determine which of the projects is the overall winner, and to determine the share of the $35,000 prize fund—payable of course in BSV. 


In a sign of the growing appeal of BSV to crypto users on a mass scale, hardware wallet manufacturer Ellipal announced it has added support for BSV to its leading Titan wallet. A super secure storage system for crypto assets, the wallet allows users to store private keys offline for maximum security, which provides an easy to use interface for a seamless user experience.

According to Ellipal, support for BSV was introduced in response to strong user demand, at a time when more people than ever are choosing BSV as the original and most effective vision of bitcoin.


Ever fancied winning some BSV? Now you can, with BitBoss. BitBoss has introduced the world’s first casino tokens on the tokenized protocol, designed for use in gaming applications.

The tokens mean mobile games can run using BSV or custom casino tokens recorded on the blockchain, with double-sped protection in place to guarantee security. The tokens can initially be used in conjunction with games like lotteries and baccarat, demonstrating the capabilities of the token which could ultimately become a standard in blockchain gaming.

The choice to release on BSV means microtransactions can take place on a low cost, fast settlement basis, allowing for more efficient gaming on the blockchain.


Notable BSV supporter WallStreet5 is back with another generous donation to furthering the work of the Bitcoin Association and BSV. WallStreet5 previously donated BSV to fund travel costs of developers to attend CoinGeek Toronto, and has repeated the feat with an offer of up 150 BSV in donations to the Bitcoin Association to fund more places at the conference.

Thanks to their generosity, approximately 20 developers, including runners-up for the Hackathon event, will now be able to travel to Seoul for the CoinGeek Conference on an all-expenses paid basis—more than worthy of this episode’s Satoshi Shout-Out.

UptimeSV: An exciting hackathon victory sets up BSV for more real use

The first Bitcoin SV (BSV) hackathon was a huge success, with dozens of teams from around the world competing to make an application that would assist in user and developer onboarding. UptimeSV were crowned the winners of that contest at the CoinGeek Toronto 2019 scaling conference, and our Becky Liggero caught up with them on the sideline to discuss their project and their experience in the competition.

The idea behind the project is to give enterprises a solution their sorely need, while giving the BSV community a financial incentive to participate in the endeavor. “Well, we’re utilizing the money mobility of the Bitcoin SV network, as well as its decentralized user base, to solve the problem of DDoS (Distributed Denial of Service) monitoring for big enterprise customers,” said team captain Dean Little. “It’s a really big problem, it costs them a lot of money, the solutions out there aren’t really tailored to them. So we decided, let’s make something that solves the huge problem of enterprise that enables us to get thousands of new people on the Metanet for free.”

Liggero asked the team about the pressures of the hackathon, and if they had any other plans if the theme was different. “We had a few ideas but it was always up to the scenario,” replied Jye Turner. “We settled on probably about five, but once the actual scenario came out, it was a bit difficult, we had to switch it up. We stuck to the plan and didn’t get much sleep, but it was a good experience. Other than that, we got it all together exactly how we wanted it. We weren’t able to complete it fully but yeah, we’re happy with what we have.”

Finally, Liggero asked why they felt this was a project that was destined for BSV. “I think compared to a lot of the other Bitcoin blockchain forks out there, it really hits the strength of Bitcoin SV when it comes to the micropayments because currently with things like Paypal, you couldn’t imagine doing all these micro fees for small jobs for useful data,” Brent Bevear responded. “What Bitcoin SV really enables is that really quick, cheap way of transmitting money for work.”

All of this will be a great inspiration to the second BSV hackathon finalists, BitQ&A, Codugh and Hive. In their competition, they were asked to build something that would emphasize the use of small amounts of BSV by users. They will compete for the $35,000 in BSV prizes that will be handed out at CoinGeek Seoul.

If you want to see another inspiring and thrilling end to a hackathon, you can be a part of the crowd that judges these three finalist. Just check out our CoinGeek Seoul page and pick up some tickets for yourself.

Определены финалисты второго виртуального хакатона Bitcoin SV

Второй хакатон Bitcoin SV (BSV) состоялся 17-19 августа, целью которого в очередной раз стал поиск самых трудолюбивых и талантливых разработчиков из сообщества BSV. Позади остался предварительный конкурсный этап, по результатам которого были отобраны три лучших проекта-финалиста, и теперь они примут участие в конференции CoinGeek в Сеуле.

Темой этого хакатона стало использование биткоина. Конкурсанты могли разработать абсолютно любой проект, но, чтобы победить в конкурсе, они должны были придумать оригинальный способ, который позволил бы обычным пользователям оперировать небольшим количеством биткоинов и получать выгоду.

Авторы проектов BitQ&А, Codugh и Hive сумели найти такой способ и вскоре поедут в Сеул, Южная Корея.

BitQ&A — это, как следует из названия, приложение для вопросов и ответов. В нем одни пользователи могут задавать любые интересующие их вопросы, а другие могут зарабатывать, давая на них содержательные ответы. Это приложение не только представляет собой стимулирующую модель, расширяющую знания сообщества BSV, но и может стать бесценным ресурсом для будущих разработчиков BSV.

Целью Codugh стала монетизация API. Эта проектная команда решила использовать всю мощь BSV, чтобы дать потребителям возможность тратить небольшое количество BSV каждый раз, когда они совершают вызов, используя API. Их разработка помогает монетизировать с трудом поддающуюся монетизации систему и стимулирует других разработчиков к созданию полезных платформ на базе API.

И, наконец, если вы когда-нибудь проводили целую ночь, падая в кроличью нору знаний, которой иногда кажется интернет, то легко разберетесь с тем, как работает Hive. Во многом основанный на принципе «пчелиного улья», Hive позволяет пользователям структурировать данные в виде пчелиных сот, а затем указывать на другие кусочки информации, которые можно прилепить к этой структуре, словно все они покрыты липким медом. В результате вы получаете огромный массив информации, который другие пользователи могут начать просматривать.

Еще четыре отличных проекта удостоились поощрительных призов, хотя в этот раз они не попали в группу финалистов. Цель проекта Sourceshare — дать разработчикам BSV возможность использовать верифицируемый код. True Reviews — это проект, в котором пользователи вознаграждаются за написание развернутых отзывов. Цель проекта ScrollPay состоит в монетизации контента. Пользователи платят за тот объем контента, который они прокручивают и просматривают. Наконец, разработка Ask The World основана на экономической модели спроса и предложения для получения любого вида помощи.

Все эти великолепные разработки стали возможны благодаря обширным возможностям масштабирования блокчейна Bitcoin SV. Размеры блоков продолжают увеличиваться, но взнос за транзакцию остается невероятно низким независимо от количества трафика, проходящего через блокчейн BSV. Благодаря этому новые оригинальные приложения, подобные описанным выше, имеют возможность создавать сервисы микроплатежей, с помощью которых пользователи могут получать разумную плату за свой контент и услуги.

И помните — вы тоже можете принять участие в конференции CoinGeek, которая пройдет с 1 по 2 октября в Сеуле, и войти в состав жюри общественности, которое выберет лучшего из трехфиналистов. Призовой фонд этих трех проектов составит 35 000 долл., и если вспомнить высочайший уровень участников предыдущего хакатона, то от нынешних презентаций также стоит ждать чего-то невероятного. Не теряйте времени и приобретайте билеты, пока еще есть такая возможность.

Finalists of second Bitcoin SV virtual hackathon revealed

The second Bitcoin SV (BSV) hackathon took place August 17-19, seeking once again to lift the hardest working and most talented developers of the BSV community. Preliminary judging has now come and gone, and the top three projects have been selected to move on to CoinGeek Seoul conference as finalists.

The theme of this hackathon is the use of Bitcoin. Contestants could build any project they could imagine, but to win, they had to find an inventive way to allow ordinary users to use small amounts of Bitcoin to gain great value.

Realizing that goal and now booked to travel to Seoul, South Korea, are BitQ&A, Codugh and Hive.

BitQ&A is, much like the name implies, a question and answer application. Users can ask whatever questions they need answers to, and other users can be rewarded by answering those questions with substantive answers. This application not only provides an incentive model for growing the knowledge of the BSV community, but could become an invaluable resource for future BSV developers.

Monetizing APIs was the goal of Codugh. The team behind that project wanted to use the power of BSV to allow consumers to spend a small amount of BSV every time they made an API call. This helps monetize the notoriously difficult to monetize system and incentivize more developers to create useful API platforms.

Finally, if you’ve ever spent a whole night falling down an internet rabbit hole of knowledge, you’ll quickly understand Hive. Acting much like a “beehive” structure, Hive allows users to build honeycombs of knowledge, and then point to other bits of knowledge and stick to it, like it’s all covered in sticky honey. What you end up with is a vast array of knowledge, just waiting for users to jump in and browse.

Four contributions were recognized as runner-ups; great projects all, but just not making the finalist group this time around. Sourceshare seeks to allow BSV developers to use verifiable code. True Reviews is attempting to reward users for writing great reviews. ScrollPay seeks to monetize content in a way where users pay for as much as they scroll. Finally, Ask The World provides a supply and demand economic model for seeking any kind of assistance.

These are all great solutions, made possible by the massive blockchain scaling of Bitcoin SV. As block sizes continue to increase, regardless of however much traffic the BSV blockchain sees, transaction fees stay incredibly low. This allows inventive applications like these to create micropayment services, where users can ask for reasonable payment for their content and services.

And don’t forget, you can be at the CoinGeek Seoul conference, to be held on October 1-2, and be part of the crowd that decides amongst these three finalists. $35,000 will be paid out to these three projects, and if it’s anything like the last hackathon, their presentations will be amazing. Don’t wait, get your tickets while they’re still available.

두 번째 비트코인 SV 가상 해커톤 결승 진출자 발표

두 번째 비트코인 SV(BSV) 해커톤이 8월 17일~19일에 개최되어, 다시 한번 BSV 커뮤니티에서 가장 열심히 일하고, 가장 재능 있는 개발자들을 찾아 치하하였습니다. 이제 예비 심사가 끝나고 상위 3개의 프로젝트가 선정되어 결승 진출자로 코인긱(CoinGeek) 서울 콘퍼런스에 진출하게 되었습니다.

이번 해커톤의 테마는 비트코인의 사용입니다. 참가자들은 상상할 수 있는 어느 프로젝트나 구축할 수 있지만 일반 사용자들이 작은 금액의 비트코인을 사용하여 큰 가치를 얻을 수 있도록 만드는 창의적인 방법을 찾아야 했습니다.

그 목표를 실현하여 한국 서울 콘퍼런스에 진출할 팀은 BitQ&A, Codugh, Hive로 정해졌습니다.

BitQ&A는 이름에서 암시하듯 질의 응답 응용 프로그램입니다. 사용자들은 자신들에게 필요한 어떤 질문이든지 할 수 있으며, 다른 사용자들은 그 질문에 대해 확실하게 답변하여 리워드를 얻게 됩니다. 이 응용 프로그램은 BSV 커뮤니티에 대한 지식을 늘리는 데 장려 모델을 제공할 뿐만 아니라 향후 BSV 개발자들을 위한 귀중한 자료가 될 수 있습니다.

Codugh의 목표는 API 수익화입니다. 그 프로젝트 배후에 있는 팀은 BSV의 역량을 이용하여 소비자들이 API 콜을 할 때마다 작은 액수의 BSV를 지출하도록 하는 것입니다. 이는 시스템을 수익화하는 데 잘 알려진 어려운 점을 수익화하고 더 많은 개발자가 유용한 API 플랫폼을 만들도록 장려합니다.

마지막으로 밤새 복잡한 지식을 얻느라 인터넷을 검색해본 사람은 Hive를 빨리 이해할 수 있습니다. 마치 ‘벌통’ 같은 구조로 Hive는 사용자가 벌집의 지식을 구축한 다음에 꿀로 온통 덮인 것과 같이 다른 지식을 가리키며 그것을 고수하는 것입니다. 결국 광대한 지식을 갖추고 사용자가 와서 검색하는 것만을 기다립니다.

4개의 팀도 입상자로 발표되었습니다. 모두 훌륭한 프로젝트였지만, 이번 결승 진출자의 그룹에는 들어가지 못했습니다. Sourceshare는 BSV 개발자가 입증 가능한 코드를 사용하는 것을 추구했습니다. True Reviews는 사용자들이 훌륭한 후기들을 작성하는 데 대해 보답을 주는 것을 시도했습니다. ScrollPay는 사용자가 스크롤한 만큼 사용자들이 지불하는 방식으로 콘텐츠를 수익화하는 것을 추구했습니다. 마지막으로 Ask The World는 모든 종류의 지원을 추구하기 위한 수요와 공급의 경제 모델을 제공합니다.

이들은 모두 훌륭한 솔루션으로, 대량 블록 체인 규모의 비트코인 SV로 실현 가능합니다. 블록 규모가 계속해서 증가하면서 많은 BSV 블록체인의 트래픽과는 상관 없이 낮은 거래 수수료를 유지합니다. 이는 사용자가 콘텐츠 및 서비스에 대한 합리적인 지급을 요청할 수 있는 소액 결제 서비스를 만들도록 하는 인센티브 응용 프로그램을 허용하게 됩니다.

그리고 잊지 마세요. 10월 1~2일에 개최되는 코인긱(CoinGeek) 서울 컨퍼런스에 참석하셔서 이 세 팀의 결승 진출자 중에서 최종 우승자를 결정하는 투표에 참여하실 수 있습니다. 이 3 개의 프로젝트에게는 $35,000 상금이 제공될 예정입니다. 그리고 지난번 해커톤과 비슷하다면, 참가자의 프레젠테이션은 아주 뛰어날 것입니다. 기다리지 마세요. 티켓이 남아있는 지금 티켓을 구매해보세요.

2-й хакатон Bitcoin SV привлекает разработчиков со всего мира для создания проектов реального использования биткоина

С 17 по 19 августа Bitcoin Association провела второй хакатон Bitcoin SV [BSV], привлекший команды разработчиков со всего мира, которые работали над созданием проектов, позволяющих реально использовать биткоин. Конкурс проводился группой компаний nChain, занимающейся предоставлением консультаций и разработками в области блокчейна, при спонсорской поддержке CoinGeek. Этот виртуальный конкурс предшествует очередной конференции CoinGeek, которая пройдет с 1 по 2 октября в Сеуле, Южная Корея. По результатам предварительного отбора будут выбраны 3 финалиста, представители которых отправятся на конференцию CoinGeek в Сеул и представят свой проект на окончательный суд ведущих компаний отрасли и зрительское голосование 1 октября. Общий призовой фонд соревнования составляет 35 000 долларов США, выплачиваемых в BSV.

О стремительном глобальном распространении проектов BSV говорит тот факт, что во 2-ом хакатоне BSV участвовали команды из более чем 35 стран, таких как: Австралия, Алжир, Аргентина, Бангладеш, Болгария, Великобритания, Гана, Гондурас, Индия, Индонезия, Испания, Канада, Катар, Китай, Колумбия, Македония, Малайзия, Намибия, Нигерия, Нидерланды, Пакистан, Польша, Португалия, Руанда, Сингапур, Словакия, Словения, США, Тунис, Турция, Фиджи, Швейцария, Шри-Ланка, Эфиопия, Южная Африка, Южная Корея.

Тема конкурса — ИСПОЛЬЗОВАНИЕ биткоина. Участников попросили создать приложение на BSV, которое взимает очень небольшую плату за ценное для пользователя действие. Задача состоит в том, чтобы привлечь большее количество пользователей к использованию биткоина, а для этого необходимо найти полезные для обычных людей способы проведения микроплатежей размером в несколько центов или даже долей цента.

Выбор этой темы неслучаен, ведь Bitcoin Association старается изменить текущее восприятие криптовалюты как платежного инструмента, который «покупают и хранят». Поэтому план развития BSV, включающий массивное масштабирование блокчейна и возможности проведения микроплатежей, сделает реальностью новую самодостаточную среду, в которой биткоин станет частью рекурсивной цифровой экономики в качестве повседневного инструмента, который «зарабатывают и используют».

Главный технический директор nChain Стив Шеддерс сказал следующее: «Наш первый BSV-хакатон, состоявшийся ранее в этом году, ставил перед разработчиками задачу создания проектов, облегчающих привлечение к Bitcoin SV как новых пользователей, так и разработчиков. Мы заметили, что решения этой проблемы, предлагаемые многими участниками, состоят в разработке новых интересных способов, с помощью которых новые пользователи BSV могут заработать небольшие суммы биткоинов. Таким образом, новые пользователи смогут начать использовать биткоин без утомительного процесса его покупки через биржи. Мы считаем, что будущее биткоина состоит в непрекращающемся процессе «зарабатывания и использования» биткоинов. Поэтому нам интересно увидеть, как разработчики, участвующие в нашем втором хакатоне, решают проблему использования биткоина рядовыми пользователями».

Первый BSV-хакатон Bitcoin Association завершился на конференции CoinGeek в Торонто в мае. Первый приз хакатона в размере 250 BSV достался UptimeSV; их проект использует BSV для мониторинга распределенной производительности и доступности сервисов, чтобы сделать корпоративные системы устойчивыми к DDoS-атакам, направленным на доведение их до отказа. Второе место завоевала платформа TonicPow, которая дает пользователям возможность монетизировать свои веб-сайты и зарабатывать BSV, используя пиринговое рекламное приложение платформы. Третьим финалистом стала система Polyglot, представляющая собой интуитивно понятный способ взаимодействия различных протоколов метасети на Python.

Президент-основатель Bitcoin Association Джимми Нгуен отмечает: «После успешного проведения нашего 1-го конкурса я очень рад видеть возросший глобальный интерес ко 2-му BSV-хакатону, который собрал столько представителей из разных стран. С каждым днем всё больше разработчиков по всему миру понимают, что BSV — это лучший блокчейн для воплощения их новых технологических идей. Мы хотим, чтобы биткоин использовался не только для торговли на биржах. Вот почему в экосистеме BSV создаются приложения, которые позволяют предприятиям и людям реально использовать биткоин в повседневной жизни. Я с нетерпением жду возможности ознакомиться с новыми разработками участников хакатона и встретиться с финалистами конкурса на конференции CoinGeek в Сеуле».

두 번째 비트코인 SV 해커톤, 비트코인의 실제 사용을 위한 프로젝트 구축에 글로벌 개발자들을 이끌다

8월 17일 – 8월 19일, 비트코인 협회는 사람들이 비트코인을 실제로 사용할 수 있도록 프로젝트를 제작하고 있는 전 세계의 개발자 팀이 관심을 보일 두 번째 비트코인 SV [BSV] 해커톤을 개최했습니다. 이번 콘테스트는 블록체인 자문 및 개발 그룹인 엔체인(nChain)이 운영하고, 코인긱(CoinGeek)이 후원했습니다. 이 가상 대회는 10월 1-2일 대한민국 서울에서 열릴 코인긱(CoinGeek) 콘퍼런스까지 이어집니다. 예비 심사를 통과해 결승에 진출한 세 팀을 선발하고, 선발팀의 각 대표는 10월 1일 코인긱 서울(CoinGeek Seoul)에서 프로젝트를 설명한 후, 업계의 지도자들과 관중 투표로 최종 심사를 받게 됩니다. 이들은 BSV로 지급되는 총 3만5천 달러 가량의 상금을 두고 경쟁합니다.

BSV 개발의 급격한 세계적 성장을 보여주는 이번 두 번째 BSV 해커톤은 다음 35개국의 개발팀들의 이목을 끌었습니다: 알제리, 아르헨티나, 호주, 방글라데시, 불가리아, 캐나다, 중국, 콜롬비아, 에티오피아, 피지, 가나, 온두라스, 인도, 인도네시아, 마케도니아, 말레이시아, 나미비아, 네덜란드, 나이지리아, 파키스탄, 폴란드, 포르투갈, 카타르, 르완다, 싱가포르, 슬로바키아, 슬로베니아, 남아프리카, 대한민국, 스페인, 스리랑카, 스위스, 태국, 튀니지, 터키, 영국, 미국.

이 경쟁의 테마는 비트코인의 사용입니다. 참가자들은 사용자가 가치를 얻는 활동에 아주 적은 금액만을 부과하는 BSV로 애플리케이션을 제작해야 합니다. 목표는 사용자들이 더 참여할 수 있도록 일반 사람들이 적은 양의 비트코인을 사용할 수 있는 의미 있는 방법을 찾아내는 것입니다. 즉, 몇 센트 혹은 센트보다 더 적은 금액의 소액 결제라는 뜻입니다.

비트코인 협회는 사람들이 동전을 “구매하고 보유하는” 오늘날의 모델에서 멀리 떨어진 암호 화폐 패러다임을 끌어들이기 위한 노력의 목적으로 이 테마를 선택했습니다. 대신, 거대한 규모의 블록체인과 소액결제 역량에 관한 BSV의 로드맵은 사람들이 반복하는 디지털 경제의 한 부분으로 일상에서 비트코인을 “벌고 사용하는” 셀프 임파워링(자율 권한 부여) 세계의 도화선이 될 것입니다.

엔체인(nChain)의 스티브 셰더스(Steve Shadders) 최고 기술 경영자는 다음과 같은 논평을 남겼습니다. “올해 초 개최된 우리의 첫 번째 BSV 해커톤은 개발자들이 개발자뿐만 아니라 신규 사용자들이 비트코인 SV에 온보딩 하는 일을 더욱 쉽게 만들 수 있는 프로젝트를 개발할 수 있도록 온보딩 문제를 해결하도록 요구했습니다. 당사는 많은 참가자가 신규 BSV 사용자가 적은 양의 비트코인을 벌 수 있도록 새롭고 흥미로운 방법으로 이 문제를 해결한 것을 보았습니다. 이런 접근 방식은 신규 사용자가 환전하여 코인을 구매하는 지루한 절차 없이 비트코인을 이용할 수 있도록 하죠. 당사는 비트코인의 미래란 사람들이 비트코인을 ‘벌어서 사용’할 수 있는, 끝나지 않는 순환이라고 생각합니다. 따라서 우리는 두 번째 해커톤에서 개발자들이 비트코인 사용자 경험의 ‘사용’ 부분을 어떻게 다룰지를 정말 기대하고 있습니다.”

비트코인 협회의 첫 번째 BSV 해커톤은 5월 코인긱(CoinGeek) 토론토 콘퍼런스에서 막을 내렸습니다. 지난 대회에서 업타임SV(UptimeSV)가 250 BSV의 최종 상금을 거머쥐며 우승했습니다. 우승한 프로젝트는 유통 수행 그리고 기업 시스템의 서비스 거부 공격(DDoS)를 무력화시키는 업 타임 모니터링 기능 제공에 BSV를 사용했습니다. 2등은 토닉포우(TonicPow)로, 사용자가 플랫폼의 P2P 광고 솔루션을 이용하여 웹사이트를 현금화하고 BSV를 벌 수 있도록 했습니다. 3등은 폴리글롯(Polyglot)이었는데, 파이썬을 통해 상호작용할 수 있도록 다양한 메타넷 프로토콜을 위한 직관적인 방법이 될 수 있도록 시스템을 디자인했습니다.

다음은 비트코인 협회 창립회장 지미 응우옌(Jimmy Nguyen)의 발언입니다. “첫 번째 대회가 성공한 후, 저는 수많은 국가와 함께 두 번째 BSV 해커톤이 세계적으로 성공하는 것이 너무나 황홀했습니다. 매일 세계의 더 많은 개발자가 BSV가 그들의 새로운 기술 비전을 구축할 수 있는 최고의 블록체인이라는 사실을 깨닫고 있습니다. 우리는 비트코인이 거래 그 이상을 위해 사용되기를 바랍니다. 그리고 그것이 바로 BSV 생태계가 기업과 대중이 실제로 비트코인을 일상에서 사용하는 애플리케이션을 구축하고 있는 이유죠. 저는 해커톤 참가자들이 제작한 것을 보고, 코인긱 서울(CoinGeek Seoul)에서 결승에 진출한 팀들을 만날 날을 매우 기대하고 있습니다.”

곧 개최됩니다: 코인긱 서울(COINGEEK SEOUL) 콘퍼런스 – 10월 1-2일

비트코인 SV의 대규모 블록체인이 개발자들과 비즈니스에서 더욱 강력한 애플리케이션을 구축하는 “BSV 확장의 힘”에 대해 알아보고 싶다면 대한민국 서울로 오세요. 10월 1-2일에 개최되는 코인긱 서울(CoinGeek Seoul)에서 비트코인 최고의 인사들과 자리를 함께하세요.

2nd Bitcoin SV hackathon draws global developers to build projects for actual use of Bitcoin

On August 17-19, the Bitcoin Association conducted its second Bitcoin SV [BSV] hackathon attracting developer teams from across the globe who worked on creating projects that enable people to actually use Bitcoin. The contest is run by blockchain advisory and development group nChain and is sponsored by CoinGeek. The virtual competition leads up to the next CoinGeek conference in Seoul, South Korea on October 1-2. Preliminary judging will select 3 top finalists, who will each send a representative to CoinGeek Seoul to present their project on October 1 for final judging by a panel of industry leaders and audience voting. They compete for a total prize pool of USD $35,000, paid in BSV.

Demonstrating the rapid global expansion of BSV development, this 2nd BSV Hackathon attracted teams from over 35 countries: Algeria, Argentina, Australia, Bangladesh, Bulgaria, Canada, China, Colombia, Ethiopia, Fiji, Ghana, Honduras, India, Indonesia, Macedonia, Malaysia, Namibia, Netherlands, Nigeria, Pakistan, Poland, Portugal, Qatar, Rwanda, Singapore, Slovakia, Slovenia, South Africa, South Korea, Spain, Sri Lanka, Switzerland, Thailand, Tunis, Turkey, United Kingdom, United States of America.

The competition’s theme is USE of Bitcoin. Contestants were asked to create an application on BSV that charges a very small amount for an action that has value to the user. The challenge is to find meaningful ways that ordinary people can use small amounts of Bitcoin to get users further engaged; this means micropayments of a few cents or even fractions of a cent.

Bitcoin Association chose this theme as part of its efforts to shift the cryptocurrency paradigm away from today’s model where people “buy and hold” coins. Instead, BSV’s roadmap for a massively scaled blockchain and micropayments capability will ignite a new self-empowering world where people “earn and use” Bitcoin in daily life as part of a recursive digital economy. 

nChain’s Chief Technology Officer Steve Shadders commented: “Earlier this year, our 1st BSV Hackathon asked developers to solve the onboarding problem – to build projects that make it easier to onboard new users, as well as developers, to Bitcoin SV. We saw many entries address the issue by creating new and interesting ways for new BSV users to earn small amounts of Bitcoin. This approach can onboard new users to Bitcoin without the tedious process of purchasing coins through an exchange. We believe the future of Bitcoin is a never-ending cycle where people can ‘earn and use’ Bitcoin. So we are excited to see how developers in our 2nd hackathon address the ‘use’ part of the Bitcoin user experience.”

Bitcoin Association’s 1st BSV Hackathon concluded at the CoinGeek Toronto conference in May. There, UptimeSV won the top prize of 250 BSV; its project uses BSV to provide distributed performance and uptime monitoring for dedicated denial of service (DDoS) enterprise systems to thwart attacks. Second place went to TonicPow, which allows users to monetize their websites, and earn BSV, using the platform’s peer-to-peer advertising solution. The third finalist was Polyglot, a system designed to be an intuitive method for different Metanet protocols to interact via Python.

Bitcoin Association Founding President Jimmy Nguyen remarks: “After the success of our 1st competition, I’m thrilled to see the global growth of our 2nd BSV Hackathon, with so many diverse countries represented. Every day, more developers across the world realize that BSV is the best blockchain for building their new technology visions. We want Bitcoin to be used for more than just trading. That’s why the BSV ecosystem is building applications that allow enterprises and people to actually use Bitcoin in daily life. I’m excited to see what the hackathon entrants create, and to meet the finalists at CoinGeek Seoul.”
