At Devfolio, we always strive to associate with the most exciting projects in the ecosystem, which can add substantial value to our community. We are thrilled to announce our partnership for the upcoming hackathon season with Portis by ShapeShift, the non-custodial wallet that makes decentralized apps simple for everyone.

Users of any service always seek convenience and ease of use over anything else, and despite the benefits that blockchain tech provides, sub-par UX has held it back from the mainstream. Portis by ShapeShift solves this in an elegant way by providing a simple and secure gateway to the Ethereum network. Their vision for a better UX for Dapp users resonates with Devolio, and we are thrilled to welcome them aboard as a Season partner for our global online Ethereum hackathon series and our 2020 university hackathon program.

Global Online Ethereum Hackathons: The ETHIndia Online Series

The ETHIndia Online series of global online hackathons bring the ETHIndia experience to a wider variety of audience going beyond geographic constraints. Portis by ShapeShift will be joining in as sponsors for the upcoming series of 7 hackathons planned over the coming 12 months to help drive innovation in the ecosystem and letting developers BUIDL more usable Dapps with their SDK. Apart from mentoring the next generation of Ethereum developers, they'll also have thousands of dollars in prize money for grabs. Stay tuned!

University Hackathon Season

We are big believers in the potential of students in making the most of opportunities to change the world using state of the art technology. We're glad to have Portis by ShapeShift join in as an official 2020 hackathon season partner for Devfolio's university program. Students across India including those from premier institutes like the famed IITs and NITs will be introduced to the art of building decentralized applications with unparalleled UX using Portis by ShapeShift. They will also have the chance to grab some cool bounties and schwag for their effort.

The best hackathon projects will have the chance to join the ranks of the top Dapps in the ecosytem. We're excited to have Portis by ShapeShift aboard as a season partner and see the hacker community build on top of it!
