Looks like a great proposal, very complete information.

Is this only for Dash? Or will it include other software projects?
Hello George for your comment, this will include any and "ONLY" software solutions using DASH as a main component.

Apps, Websites or hardware(Arduino, Raspberry etc.) using wrappers or any API

Thank you for your pre-proposal. Hackathons are a great way to generate interest and even set the foundations for communities and projects that eventually seek further development, funding, and usefulness to the network long term. The budget you requested seems very reasonable, and previous experience in hosting and facilitating hackathons is a benefit to your credibility as well. Could you give us some examples of some of the notable projects that have come from your previous hackathons? Any projects that actually went on to full development and marketing as an actual product?

Any projects that actually went on to full development and marketing as an actual product?

I'm compiling that information with our network partners, at this point some of the projects are still under development, some other pivoted. Since most of the project and the hackathon culture is still under development in Latin America we are working towards having better prototypes and better execution after closer to product market fit.

Excellent proposal, hope this gets funded. We need better technology in DASH to make the objectives of the project better.

There is a huge opportunity in having this kind of experiences for developers here is a great tool for adoption and long term commitment

Great proposal Rafa, we all agree that it is necessary to attract developers who are actively involved in the construction of tools that exploit the Dash ecosystem. Most developers do not get involved or do not know the DASH ecosystem because they do not see the right incentives.
