The EF is excited to announce the results of the Medalla data challenge, a data hackathon focused on the Medalla testnet โœจ

The prompt was open-ended: we asked for data tools, visualizations, and analyses of testnet data; in short, anything that would help the community make sense of all the data.

Over the course of six weeks we received 23 submissions from a wide variety of teams. We were pleased to see high quality submissions for every category.

Prizes are divided into three tiers based on scope, extensibility, and usefulness to the community.

๐Ÿฅ‡ Gold ($15k prize)

๐Ÿฅˆ Silver ($5k prize)

๐Ÿฅ‰ Bronze ($1k prize)

Looking forward

The aims of this contest were to welcome new minds into the Ethereum community, encourage them to pore over eth2 data, make it easier to parse and analyse, and provide valuable insights to both developers and the community at large. To that end, the competition has been a great success, and we suspect that many of the tools and analyses produced will be useful as mainnet goes live.

If youโ€™re interested in picking up where any of these submissions left off, please consider applying for a staking community grant!
