HAL #2: First win, Twitter integration and our Kyber guide

🏆 ✌️ We won our first hackathon! 🏆 ✌️

Last time we told you we took part in the DragonQuest hackathon with rDAI... and now we’re super proud to say we won the first prize!
Victor Rortvedt @twoirtterCongratulation the hal.xyz team for winning the DragonQuest hackathon @rDAI_dao bounty! They've built a beautiful event tracker for hat creation, minting events and whatever else a dapp or user would wish to track.

For those of you not familiar with it, rDai (redeemable DAI) allows you to invest your money in an interest generating pool, used for collateralized loans. You decide who benefits from the generated interest: yourself, a community fund, a charity, or a dApp you are using. For instance, ETHHub is there!
In our hack, we wired rDAI with Telegram to make it easy to use HAL to keep track of important events on rDAI with some use cases dedicated to non-profit initiatives. We explained how you can monitor the creation of rDAI pools and who joins them, in just a few clicks.

Twitter Integration 🐦 🤖

We rolled out the Twitter integration for everyone to play with. This is a feature that many users requested, and we’re thrilled to find out what you’re going to build with it. 🔧

Hackathons are fun, so we took part in the New York Blockchain Week hackathon as well.
