A Block Tank Primer


For those unaware, we (Hydro) are hosting our first ever Block Tank event tomorrow – a Shark Tank-style competition for dApps that will be viewed by an audience, as well as live-streamed on Thursday 17th May.

We recently announced the names of our featured participants (both existing & in-development dApps) and panel for the event. The judging panel includes ourself, alongside Huobi, Wanchain & Blockchain Founders Fund.

Our in-person audience will be able to cast their vote in realtime via QR code and a smart contract dApp that u/HydroNoah has created with Trust Wallet!

We have since introduced the featured dApps contending in more detail on Twitter. I have rounded up all the details for you below (in no particular order):
