CHENGDU, China, March 25, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- HITACHI Hackathon supported by SCRY.INFO successfully concluded in Xnode Zhangjiang Space. Fifteen teams comprised of developers and student from Japan, China, Korea, and Singapore participated in the event, and competed under the theme of "Fintech + Blockchain".

SCRY.INFO provided the protocol layer development environment for all developers at the event where participants could use SDK packages developed by SCRY.INFO to easily build Ethereum based DApps and improve blockchain application development.

During the event, SCRY.INFO made the protocol layer and source code public for the first time in order to provide a stable environment and a reliable codebase for developers. SCRY.INFO was stress tested by experienced developers from all backgrounds and proven to be capable of allowing developers to use SCRY to build their blockchain dream project.

Even on the second day of the hackathon, all participants were full of energy and showed no signs of slowing down. Most of the participants even worked overnight to turn their thoughts into reality.

Creative demos appeared in the final presentation, including face recognition, dynamic verification, human behavior collection based on smart machine. Demos included steaming data cleaning, storage, call, and confirmation; combining with IOT devices to implement face recognition to automatically get healthcare data; using smart contracts to process insurance compensation; inputting data records in blockchain and using AI to do arbitration; purchasing flight insurance and using an API to get flight data; realizing fast compensation on smart contract; and more. Big data, IOT, AI together with blockchain innovation will have disruptive influences on what data can bring to individuals and enterprises.

At the end of hackathon, Pyxis, Waves, Xiaoming, and Group 2 won first, second, and third prize, and the HITACHI special award respectively with cash, as well as an electric car bonus from SCRY.INFO. First prize winner Pyxis consisted of undergraduates from Shanghai Tech University. The young talents performed well and their appearance shows that new blood has entered the industry and the entrance of younger developers will lead the blockchain industry to a brighter future.

Prize drawing supported by SCRY.INFO pushed the atmosphere even higher with 15 lucky winners getting gifts.

As the event came to a successful close, all the attendees were appreciative of the event as it displayed SCRY's excellent development environment. The organizers and supporters hope to have closer cooperation after this event and explore a brighter future based on blockchain together.


As a flexible and scalable protocol, SCRY.INFO can establish the conditions needed for widespread usage of blockchain smart contracts that collects and consolidate data for grouped analysis and forecast verification. SCRY.INFO is an open source protocol that grants authorization to developers, individuals and any freely organized blockchain communities. Developers can utilize SCRY's APIs to get access to data services by officially logging into SCRY.INFO protocol; add interesting data sources to SCRY.INFO and verify the data sources through collective wisdom; and pinpoint all the source information files containing authentic blockchain data. We believe in the power of originality brought by the open source and sharing characteristics of smart contract, just as we equally believe in the creative potential of those who participate in the use of authentic data that are abundantly available now. The belief is also upheld by SCRY that individuals, institutions, independent developers, companies, planners and governments will make better use of authentic blockchain data, in order to help emerging economies build the foundation upon which they can extract value from blockchain data.
