The hackathon’s goal was to show the best application of TON payments technology in 48 hours. We received over 80 submissions.
The teams made MVPs showing the use of TON Payments in various areas — social networks, API, streaming, calls, advertising, games, internet traffic, decentralized finances, and more. The ideas are so cool that we decided to double the prize pool.
It was also the first TON programming event with an offline part — the participants could gather in Prague.
New functionality — Quick installation mode using dump download. — Nominator pool support is now in the master branch with new improvements. — Validators can now issue certificates for liteservers.
Improved work with wallets — Added support for different wallet versions (v1, v2, v3) and wallet version detecting. — Import & export wallet by address and private key. — Now no restart is required to apply changes to wallets.
Stats improvement — More info in the status command and more accurate calculation of indicators — e.g., TPS. — Display of past elections, validators, and complaints. — Improved telemetry (disks iops, network pps, uname, memory, swap).
Misc — Refactoring. — Miner removed.

TON Payments is a technology for micropayments and a micropayment channel network. It can be used for many instant off-chain value transfers between parties without network fees. Safeguards built into the system ensure that these transfers are as secure as on-chain transactions.
