Worldwide Nimiq Hackathon!

#1

“Good marketing makes the company look smart. Great marketing makes the customer feel smart.” — Joe Chernov

Nimiq is premised on the concept of blockchain made simple. It provides an avenue for your ‘everyday’ Javascript developer to do something he/she would otherwise never be able to: create a blockchain based application. Nimiq is the ONLY project in the crypto ecosystem that allows for this opportunity and, in my opinion, needs to leverage this uniqueness.

I therefore think Nimiq should host a worldwide hackathon, challenging any willing dev to create an app based off the Nimiq platform. Not only could a competition of this nature help Nimiq garner widespread attention, it would also provide a means to enlarge the community through engagement, and could potentially spawn new use-cases for Nimiq. Furthermore, it would promote Nimiq in a manner that would feel absolutely nothing like a traditional commercial stunt. The winner gets a million Nim, and Nim’s legal team (with the appropriate disclaimers in-place), get the rights to all submitted ideas and apps.

As always, any and all feedback is greatly appreciated.
