Binance Smart Chain and DoraHacks Hackathon for projects building on the BSC ecosystem is over, and here's a quick recap of the 55 participating teams. In total, we raised over $400,000, which were distributed among the top 34 winning projects.
The hackathon was title sponsored by Binance Smart Chain (BSC) and hosted by DoraHacks, a global hackathon organizer. Fifty-five teams from Russia, Ukraine, Kazakhstan, and Eastern Europe submitted their project application for the hackathon and raised a total of 714,44 BNB in funding.
DoraHacks & BSC NFT&DeFi Hackathon in Russia officially ended on April 26, followed by a 4-day grace period for the anti-Sybil attack detection and vote analysis. During this grace period, HackerLink ran a close-source program to analyze all the votes to detect any Sybil attacks from the quadratic voting mechanism manipulating the results. The final matching pool distribution result was posted on April 30. The top 5 winning teams are xDAO, 1clickDAO, TERA NFT-HUB, Fragment.protocol, and ValueNetwork.

Top 5 winning projects
xDAO is an innovative DeFi platform that allows the creation of Decentralized Autonomous Organizations (DAOs) for the joint management of crypto assets. With xDAO, you can create your own DAO in a few clicks, pool funds of partners, and manage them for investment purposes according to the rules established beforehand.
1clickDAO is a DeFi Ecosystem managed by DAO-Interfaces, which provides a phenomenal combination of security, transparency, flexibility, and cost-efficiency to asset managers and their сlients.
TERA NFT-HUB is an anonymous and decentralized protocol for transferring coins and NFT tokens between different blockchains, such as Etherium, BSC, Tron, Polkadot, Cosmos, etc.
Fragment is a cross-chain NFT fractionalization protocol, solving NFT secondary market and price discovery problems. Fragment Protocol is a new project that is revolutionizing the NFT industry. The concept behind the project is fairly simple. Once you've bought or created an NFT on any chain, using Fragment, you can fractionalize ownership of it by minting a set of corresponding tokens on BSC. From there, the options are manifold. You can use the fraction tokens for trading, fundraising, lending, borrowing, staking, or any other business model applicable to the DeFi world. Our mission is to bring more users to the BSC NFT space, as we believe it is the best place to onboard new market players due to its low gas fees.
Value Network is a blockchain project which is focused on prediction markets. We are solving the conflict of interests between a user and a broker. The platform allows users to put bets against each other on smart contracts.
