Our new product, the HackerTrail Arena, was assessed across the broad fields of market impact, innovation, and presentation. (http://arena.hackertrail.com/)

The Arena is an online multi-player, multi-level technical quiz game with real time results. The Arena empowers players to participate in technical tournaments using virtual currency. Each tournament can be configured to test one or multiple technical skills and consists of multiple rounds of challenges. The heart of this product is our proprietary judge which can process source code as well as multiple-choice inputs in real time. Each player’s mission is simple – eliminate opponents by cracking challenges as fast as possible, and progress to higher levels in the game. Winners are rewarded with badges and virtual currency, linked to a Rewards store. Players who get eliminated are provided with relevant tutorials to help them improve their skills.

Our platform was evaluated on several criteria: degree of innovation, technological elegance, functionality, trendsetting factor and user impact.

The awards were presented at the Infocomm Industry Gala Dinner held on the 1st of October in Singapore.

A big shout-out to all who have supported us in one way or another in the development of HackerTrail Arena! We’re just getting started and over the next few months we will continue to refine and improve the experience for everyone.
