The Tezos DeFi Hackathon 2022 will be held online from February 1 to 28. Ivan called the hackathon the largest event in the Russian-speaking community. Hackathon members will choose 2 out of 12 challenges, the list of which includes the development of DeBot and bridge between Tezos and Everscale. There are also challenges from Tezos and Avalanche. One team (up to 6 people) will be able to receive $55 000 max.
