The hackathon took place in the Centre for International Governance Innovation (CIGI) in Waterloo, Canada. More than 400 developers from 32 countries competed for the right to present their projects before renowned judges among whom were Joseph Lubin, the founder of Consensys; Joey Krug, founder of Augur and Vitalik Buterin, founder of Ethereum.
The interesting part about ETHWaterloo is that the event was free for all participants and the prizes were not the main incentive for participation.
Ethereum founder Vitalik Buterin, a former student at the Waterloo University, gave a keynote speech on the thriving ecosystem of Ethereum developers and the future of technology. In addition, CIGI Senior Fellow Julie Maupin, an expert on cryptocurrency law and international trade, delivered a presentation on the legal and regulatory implications of blockchain technology.
Dan Kaizer and TherdEye team ended up among the eight winners for creating a platform which solves the problem of smart contract auditing.
