.Club had 79 of the official submissions using a .CLUB domain name and over 100 total .CLUB projects at the 2016 Launch Hackathon.
Last year at Launch .Club had 53 teams using a .CLUB domain for their Hackathon project.
Domain.com made it easy for everyone to get a free .CLUB domain, and .Club’s partner Coffee.club helped make sure the busy hackers were kept well caffeinated 24/7 during the 48 hour competition.
This year .Club offered two cash prizes: $6,000 for the best project using a .CLUB domain and $2,000 for the best .CLUB name.
The winners were:
$6,000 – WalkWithUs.club – User created walking tours of neighborhoods, places, etc. A website where you can easily create a tour. An app/mobile version where folks can download (free or fee) a tour and use it while they walk.
$2,000 – NotAFight.club – Clever name, and actually a fun idea. It stops you from starting a fight with a spouse, co-worker or friend by analyzing the text in your message before you send it and scores it for how angry you sound and suggests words you can change to “tone it down” so you don’t start a fight.
New domain names had a great presence at the 2016 Launch Hackathon as Radix also offered prizes for the use of their domains.
Here’s a short video with some of the 2016 highlights:
