Binance SAFU Hackathon is the Official Hackathon of the Binance Singapore Week held on the 19th and 20th of January 2019. This 32-hour round-the-clock hackathon primary objective is to empower blockchain engineers to rapidly prototype blockchain solutions to potentially solve problems identified by key stakeholders of this program. Despite the incredible growth what we are witnessing in the crypto community, we still need a safer digital asset world in order to build the core infrastructure and useful real world applications on top of it. Thus for the inaugural launch, Binance SAFU Hackathon aims to challenge the hack theme of a SAFU Digital Asset World, where a great focus will be placed on eliminating scams, hacks and money laundering activities that are plaguing the blockchain industry globally.

Theme: Query Platform for Address Security: “Is the transaction address you are sending your crypto to SAFU?”

Challenges: Confidential – Revealed upon registration

Security remains the top priority for Binance. In addition to keeping platforms secure from attackers, we actively fight against scam, fraud and money laundering. To that end, Binance SAFU Hackathon is calling all the #BUIDLers in the world to come join us to BUIDL an open platform that fights against scams, hacks and money laundering in order to protect our users.

We hope this will create a community and culture that collectively gathers information about scammers, hackers, money launderers or any suspicious activities, and make crypto community a safer place.

Participants must register a minimum of two per team.
Registration opens from now till 9th January 2019.
Upon registration, applicants will receive an email with the hack challenge to submit a Pitch Deck by 9th January 2019 for selection.
Successful applicants will receive an invitation* to the Binance SAFU Hackathon.
