This past week on March 24 the San Francisco-based Hackreactor HQ and the bitcoin company Purse introduced bitcoin to over fifty developers with its “Bcoin Hackathon.” The bitcoin-centric hackathon included two days of programmers experimenting with the alternative Bcoin protocol and the process of building with bitcoin.

A group of hackers consisting of young developers and senior level engineers gathered at the Hackreactor to develop ideas utilizing the bitcoin protocol. Attendees worked with the client Bcoin an alternative bitcoin implementation written in (javascript) node.js. The Bcoin protocol was created by software developer Christopher Jeffrey, the Chief Technical Officer at Purse.

Kudos for Purse hosting events like this... because there are a lot of developers in the Jnr ranks that must one day fill the shoes of the Lead

developers we have now. There are currently a lot of interest in Blockchain based technologies, but we need more people that can code the

killer App everyone are waiting for in the future.  Grin

We can have killer bitcoin app but when the network can't handle simplest things and it is spammed all the time no killer app will help us.
Nature of Bitcoin  is the source of our problems and that can't be changed easily.
Inability to regulate BTC is the reason we don't have ETF and adoption is stalled or even reversed Fiverr and Dell are not longer accepting BTC.
