ETHBerlin Zwei Hackathon at Factory Berlin's Görlitzer Park location recently wrapped up and it was a huge success. 730 attendees and 88 hack submissions were vying for the generous rewards and sponsored bounties. One of the big takeaways is that DeFi (Decentralized Finance) is very prominent in a developer’s mindshare right now. Building successful interfaces and creating novel business models on DeFi platforms was a common theme among hacking submissions.

 

NBT played an active part in ETHBerlinZwei in a few different ways; you can read about our rowing and vending machines challenges right here. Check out the action below and stay tuned next for a deeper dive on our blog and Medium publication, where we'll present a technical perspective on event learnings from our blockchain engineer, Aaron Boyd.
