We are still riding high from the fantastic events of techweek 2021. The CENNZnet team were right amongst it this year hosting workshops and setting up CENNZnet environments for budding DApp devs. But the big event of the week was without a doubt our dramatic 48-hour hackathon where we saw the creation of some of the coolest NFT ideas on the block.

We were blown away by the enthusiasm for all things blockchain from the NZ tech community and are super excited about the potential of our hackathon teams to start implementing world-changing NFT solutions on the CENNZnet chain!

  • A certificate issuance platform
  • Custom skins or emojis represented as NFTs

Our panel of judges scored each submission according to the following criteria:
