TRON DAO and BitTorrent Chain (BTTC) announced Poloniex, Houbi Incubator, Houbi Ventures, Gate.io and KuCoin Ventures as partners who will join the permanent jury.
Trading partners will serve as judges for Hackathon projects built on TRON or BTTC. Each of the partners can consider financing projects with high potential. Winning projects that issue utility tokens will have the opportunity to work with our exchange partners on potential future listings and will be invited to integrate with some of their native blockchains, such as GateChain on Gate.io.
