Cosmos, the second-largest blockchain ecosystem after Ethereum, invites all developers to join in HackAtom VI, the biggest hackathon in Cosmos history with a massive $1,000,000+ of prizes in ATOM.

HackAtom VI will take place for one month online from Nov 11 until Dec 8, and you can already register to take part here. As a mainly virtual event, HackAtom VI will provide workshops online, both pre-recorded and live. Participants will have plenty of opportunities to ask questions, seek assistance from HackAtom VI’s seasoned mentors, and get their hands on useful materials to help them in their quest.
Throughout the hackathon, Cosmos will be offering full support and training, as well as multiple “brainstorming sessions” with HackAtom VI judges and mentors from across the Cosmos ecosystem. Participants will also be able to access support daily via a dedicated Discord channel.
There will also be two in-person side events held in central Berlin and Lisbon. The pre-hackathon warm-up event will be held on Friday, Oct 29, at Spielfeld Digital Hub, Berlin, starting at 17:30 CET. Participants will take part in three different interactive workshops, meet like-minded cosmonauts, get access to some of the brightest developer minds in the Cosmos ecosystem, and enjoy complimentary food and drink. Places are now sold out, however, all content will be recorded and available later online.
The official opening ceremony will also be an in-person event at a prestigious location in central Lisbon (details coming soon) on Nov 11 at 09:00 local time (GMT). So, if you find yourself in Portugal’s stunning capital city, be sure to join us for the event! Get ready for an action-packed day of keynotes, workshops, mentoring, networking, socializing, and food and drink, all completely free of charge! If you can’t make the event, don’t worry.
