MrV777, organizer of the Ardor Community hackathon, announced today:

A full breakdown of the votes from all judges has been posted here by mrv777.

Mrv further adds:

I want to note that I will not be taking my prize.  I will leave it in the pool and am looking into using it for someone to design a new theme for NRS.  Any other funds left in the prize pool will be set aside for either a bounty/grant program or the next hackathon. 🙂

When contacting winners, I will likely ask if they want to leave any tokens or percentage of winnings in the pool for these future programs.

Congrats to all the devs and designers!

A big salute to the winners and all participants in the hackathon here from Nxter.org too, and not least a BIG UP and thanks to Mrv777 for organizing this incredible hackathon!

All of you made made all of us win, by submitting such awesome open source projects, in such diverse categories, which shows the power of the Ardor platform – and your great skills of course! Also, welcome to the new devs who found out about Ardor through this hackathon. Hopefully, many participants will work further on their projects, others be inspired, and some become a standard in the further building of the layers on blockchain.
