Business Development and Ecosystem

Zero2Hero Hackathon

Blockless is thrilled to partner with the @BNBCHAIN team to offer a decentralized compute layer on top of Greenfield in #Zero2Hero Builder Series. You will be able to use Blockless to easily create off-chain modules such as triggers, oracle, web hosting, and more on Greenfield. Blockless will also offer a bounty for all hackathon participants.

ETH Denver

The team was speaking at ETH Denver to promote awareness around how decentralized computing and zkWASM are making a difference in Web3.

The team also attended the Climate Summit at ETH Denver to connect with teams working on ReFi. Blockless aims to leverage our zk-verifiable executions to empower customized oracles for ReFi applications.

Twitter Space

We’ve conducted a Web3 infrastructure-related Twitter space with industry leaders including EthStorage, Manta Network, thirdweb, and Chainbase.
