EOSweekly is a roundup of recent news within the ecosystem. Unique needs and services continue to emerge as the advantages of blockchain technology are realized. Easy access to information becomes increasingly important for these expansive networks.
The Beyond Blockchain Hackathon has quietly impacted an EOS community already undergoing a PowerUp transition. While innovative teams work away, NFTs have taken hold of EOS as much as any other blockchain. Block.one’s vision and Hackathon challenge are a bit clearer now. Basically, teams must present scalable contributions of significance that employ blockchain with the capacity for deployment on the Google Cloud Platform. The challenge and its specific requirements can be found on DevPost. B1 also reminds us of the previous winner, Lifebank.
Resources for EOS Hackathon Teams
With the Hackathon coming to an end in less than two weeks (April 6), Block.one listed several resources to help with final submissions. Developers have a wide range of options. There’s the fundamental material at the developers portal. For tough questions, there’s Stack Exchange and Telegram. Of course GitHub for the technical and action-oriented stuff. Webinars are also available to get a feel for key contributions.

Boid Offers Free PowerUps
Aviation is one of my passions. This focus guides me towards unique connections for crypto and the flying community. While the term Boid may have first been applied to the flocking behavior of birds, it’s come to mean much more. The team behind Boid has quietly flown under the radar to host a vibrant social network, dapp, NFTs, and now, a game. There are some significant details available for the NFTs and in-development BoidVoid Game. They promise to be EOS’ first NFTs with utility. eospowerup.io was also announced this week:
eospowerup.io is now live ...Free 2x daily PowerUps for EOS accounts. To help ease the transition to the new PowerUp resource model on $EOS.
Anchor for Android and Geymass Chatter
Anchor knows how to hit the sweet spot. Features are friendly to newcomers while detailed and flexible enough to satisfy advanced users. By adding Android, Anchor becomes the most versatile wallet available. Greymass encourages users to upgrade integrations for an even better experience, like in-app fee-based transactions. As always, there’s no shortage of tech talk. Aaron Cox took time to share his opinions about EOSIO Reference Authenticator, UAL, and associated tools.
