Klaytn Hackathon, which runs from April 12th to May 31st, invites all developers worldwide for an opportunity to create BApps (Blockchain Applications) on the Klaytn public testnet Baobab, which was launched on March 29th. Unlike traditional offline hackathons, Klaytn Hackathon is an online competition where any individuals or teams around the globe can access and participate.

Any developers with great ideas for blockchain services can participate by registering on the official Klaytn Hackathon homepage at www.klaytnhackathon.com.

Seeking to raise awareness of the competition, Klaytn plans to hold 'Klaytn Hackathon Meetup in HCMC' to introduce the public testnet Baobab and the Klaytn Hackathon in more detail. As Vietnam emerges as the next blockchain hub for the blockchain market in Asia, Klaytn endeavors to scale the reach of blockchain in the Ho Chi Minh City market.
