Open DeFi is collaborating with Gitcoin to host our first hackathon, inviting our community of builders to help grow the DeFi ecosystem.
DeFi protocols, blockchain networks, and industry leaders from who support this vision of growing the DeFi ecosystem, will be sponsoring prizes for builders working on innovative ideas. The OD hackathon provides a platform to learn from multiple Web3 communities, and showcase and promote your products to a large audience.
There are various bounties to choose from, sponsored by Hummingbot, Ocean Protocol, Conflux Network, BProtocol, mStable, Oasis Foundation, Secret Network, Badger, ZKswap, Polygon, Vega Protocol, 88mph, DeFi Saver, Pickle Finance, and others, plus exclusive swag from Open DeFi! The winners get a chance to be supported further by grants and Open DeFi launchpad to take their products to the next level.
The hackathon is a virtual event starting on May 3rd and will run for 3 weeks, concluding in a demo day, where the winning projects will get a chance to present to a global audience.
The focus areas for the hackathon are:
- Liquidity — NFTs+DeFi, New token primitives, asset wrapping
- Risk management — Insurance, security, oracles
- Innovation — Integrations, L2/cross-chain DeFi, new asset & governance models
We are inviting builders with different experiences, technical skills, and industries to drive the vision forward, and we are excited to see the innovation and the value created through the collaboration of our collective communities.
