TZ APAC, one of Asia’s adoption entities supporting the Tezos ecosystem, has partnered with Tezos India and Chainstack to bring the largest Tezos blockchain hackathon to Asia. Application for the month-long hackathon, TezAsia, is now open.

TezAsia aims to help participants learn, grow, and excel in the blockchain domain. The hackathon will be held on the Devfolio platform and offer $14,000 in prizes across all tracks. The top 5 projects will have the opportunity to receive follow-on grants of up to $10,000 each, allowing participants to take their projects to the next level.
