BattleHack (or Battle Hack in the 2013 series) was a series of global hackathon contests organised by PayPal.[3][4] Competitors were required to solve a local problem by coding.[4][5] Winners of the first prize of each contest got an axe as the trophy, and admission to the world finals where competitors competed for the $100,000 grand prize.[4][6][7] Competitors retain the ownership of their applications made in the contests.[3][4]
