The Bitcoin Design Community, a group dedicated to open-source design for bitcoin products, is hosting a Designathon (a hackathon but for design) from October 12-23.
The Design Bitcoin team is partnering with Bolt.Fun and its Legends of Lightning tournament while looking to coordinate with TABConf Builder Day. The goal of the event is to connect builders and designers to collaborate and explore new ideas and concepts in the ecosystem.
Designers who wish to submit ideas for the Designathon can do so here and after a quick review the ideas will be posted on the main site for others to view and consider as a project.
Additionally, anyone can submit an idea to work on with others or as an individual and entrants will also have the opportunity to participate in other projects that they have not submitted. When participants add a project to the event, they will also have the option to register for the Legends of Lightning tournament.
The event will follow a loose schedule with three main segments: kickoff, mid-event check-in, and wrap-up calls. The projects will follow their own rhythm throughout the event.
Additionally, the team behind the event is trying to schedule design jam sessions, workshops, and other events that will be available throughout the Designathon.
Potential sponsors wishing to get involved in the project can do so in the form of prizes for participants. 100% of the profits from sponsorships will go to the participants.
