We’ve seen tremendous progress on all the projects building on TRON. Thank you to all the applicants who submitted their projects in the first season of the TRON Grand Hackathon, and another congratulation to the project winners in all four tracks in Web3, NFT, DeFi, and GameFi.
In the Web3 track, contribute to the transition from Web 2.0 to Web 3.0 by introducing useful DAO tools and SocialFi dApps. In the NFT track, we encourage you to embrace the creator economy. In our DeFi track, leverage DeFi to offer convenient financial solutions to everyone. Lastly, for the GameFi track, it’s the next generation GameFi where entertainment meets blockchain.
Here are some of the Season 1 winners in each track:
In the Web3 track, we have our first prize winner, dCloud by Cctechmx, where they created an Open Source Web3 Cloud storage mobile app enabling its ecosystem to enjoy a self-sustainable and shared economy. Includes a BTFS-powered Cloud Storage mobile app, Free and Open Source Software (FOSS), Renter and Host capabilities, BTTC Wallet Manager, Terminal interface for advanced users, and debugging.
The second prize winner is GockeFi by the GockeFi team, and they are building the next disruptive app to help users manage their metaverse investments. By making it easy to track your expenses, earnings, NFTs, and total profit, they’ve turned your over-complicated spreadsheet into an all-in-one GUI.
For the NFT track, the first prize winner is VersacBrickSquad by TuruGlobal, a collection of DAOs investing in real estate assets, and jointly managing the assets based on the community’s votes. The platform provides a structure that makes Real Estate investment accessible for TRON users.

USTX’s algorithm aims to reduce price volatility and protect investors’ value while providing consistent growth potential. Their long-term goal is to build an ecosystem around USTX that can support the worldwide adoption of the token.
Last but not least, in the GameFi track, the first prize winner is TronNinja Arcade by TronNinjas, where the mission is to digitalize the local Arcade and bring back an old art form in a new medium.

Thank you to the participants and winners who have made this inaugural season of the Hackathon an outstanding success.
About TRON DAO
TRON is dedicated to accelerating the decentralization of the internet via blockchain technology and decentralized applications (dApps). Founded in September 2017 by H.E. Justin Sun, the TRON network has continued to deliver impressive achievements since MainNet launch in May 2018. July 2018 also marked the ecosystem integration of BitTorrent, a pioneer in decentralized Web3 services boasting over 100 million monthly active users. The TRON network has gained incredible traction in recent years. As of June 2022, it has over 102 million total user accounts on the blockchain, more than 3.5 billion total transactions, and over $11 billion in total value locked (TVL), as reported on TRONSCAN. In addition, TRON hosts the largest circulating supply of USD Tether (USDT) stablecoin across the globe, overtaking USDT on Ethereum since April 2021. The TRON network completed full decentralization in December 2021 and is now a community-governed DAO. Most recently, the over-collateralized decentralized stablecoin USDD was launched on the TRON blockchain, backed by the first-ever crypto reserve for the blockchain industry – TRON DAO Reserve, marking TRON’s official entry into decentralized stablecoins.
