ArcBlock Hosts Second Hackathon in Bellevue
At ArcBlock, we are focused on creating a platform that makes it easier for developers to develop, test, and deploy decentralized applications and want to grow our developer community continually. ArcBlock is a proud sponsor of the most recent hackathon held on August 25, 2018, in Bellevue, WA.
This event included competitors from Amazon, Premera Blue Cross, Vestlink, and Google to name a few. The event took place at ArcBlock’s Bellevue campus with a great turn out and by having it at North American campus competitors could easily engage various ArcBlock engineering team members on a wide variety of questions including discussing the use of our APIs, SDKs and even receiving demonstrations of some pre-built templates and examples to help teams get started.
While every submission we received during the event provided significant results, we had several DApps that stood out. Listed below are several of the highlights.
This DApps included a particle flow visualization of blockchain transaction data including real-time data flows, relational data points and unique views on secondary and tertiary data points.
This DApp allows you to easily query ArcBlock’s OCAP Service directly through Slack including real-time access data for Ethereum and Bitcoin.
This DApps included a visualization tool to see real-time ETH pricing along with the corrosponding miner data including who the miner is. This data can be viewed in real-time as well as over a designated time period.
To select a winner, ArcBlock engaged the teams and community to vote on the best full-featured application that included ArcBlock’s technologies. The winning DApp was the OCAP Transaction Flow.
OCAP Playground is a GraphQL interactive console that gives developers an easy and powerful way to access and query OCAP Services including Bitcoin and Ethereum data.
