Anurag presented the idea of a bill-splitting app based on DAI for the hackathon.
Matic’s Hackathon use case: Create a DApp that allows users to pay merchants at restaurants & other places and split the bill between their friends using DAI as the medium of payment on Matic
A total of 5 teams worked on this idea. We had also announced a special prize for the winning team that created the best DApp for implementing this idea.
Anurag, who was also part of the judges panel at this event, had the opportunity to mentor teams working on Matic Network’s hackathon use case as well as other ideas.
Over 24 hours, students and professionals came up with novel ideas and showcased their solutions.The Judges then interacted with each team to understand their solutions and evaluate their submissions.
Our CPO, Anurag, also took a session on Off-Chain scaling and the capabilities of Matic as an L2 scaling solution to an eager and curious audience.
In the end, the winners were announced and 1 team of the 5 working on the Bill Split app were declared the winners for the Matic special prize.
