[HACKATHON GUIDE] MORPHEUS LABS PRESENTS — Future of Blockchain Community Series: Part 1 — Online Hackathon

The effort for developers, not to mention organisations and enterprises to adopt blockchain as part of their business model, is very time and cost intensive. To resolve this, Morpheus Labs soft-launched the Blockchain Platform and App Marketplace on 31st October 2018. The platform enables end users to test-drive blockchain applications within a lab environment at a fraction of the cost and time.

With this in place, we will ease the load off many enterprises and developers. As a next step, in order to curate more use cases for businesses, Morpheus Labs will launch the Future of Blockchain Community Series. This initiative aims to expand the number of Dapps as well as to commit to the worthy cause of community building within the blockchain ecosystem.

For Part 1 of the Future of Blockchain Community Series — we will be running an online Hackathon where we welcome everyone to participate. Please help us to spread the word and some love. :)
