Innovate Moldova

Moldova's First Web3 Hackathon

Every day at HUG, we strive to harness Web3’s potential to make the world a better place.

In September 2022, HUG Studios had the honor & privilege of collaborating with USAID Europe at Innovate Moldova, the country’s first-ever Web3 Hackathon. Working alongside partner communities, we provided education and resources on Web3’s potential to aid Ukrainian refugees.
Our Director of Creative Programming, Michael Littig, joined the event in person as a host and facilitator. Debbie Soon hosted a workshop on community building, while our Head of Product Engineering, Ken Richard, shared his insights on smart contracts.
The winner of the Innovate Moldova Hackathon was TalkEarn. They have been rewarded a scholarship to join our hedgeHUG accelerator, our advisory program for innovative Web3 businesses preparing for launch.

TalkEarn is a first decentralized platform, connecting crypto experts and enthusiasts in one ecosystem built on Talk2Earn technology.
