Hackathon sponsorship and Lightning challenge

To further support Miami’s tech scene, we’re going to be the first-ever crypto sponsor of Florida’s largest hackathon, ShellHacks, which will be taking place September 24-26. Hosted by a technology-focused student organization at Florida International University (FIU), ShellHacks brings together over 1,000 software programmers every year. Our sponsorship includes a ShellHacks challenge focused on the Lightning Network — a solution allowing for faster and cheaper bitcoin transactions — with a workshop hosted by Lightning Labs before the hackathon. Members of the first-place team will receive $1,000 in bitcoin, mentorship, and the opportunity to intern in the Okcoin Miami office during Summer 2022.

We’ve been bullish on Lightning since day one and have long believed it is the tool needed to bring Bitcoin to the next billion people. That’s why we were one the first crypto exchanges to integrate Lightning deposits and withdrawals, offering our customers near instant bitcoin transactions with 99% lower fees.
