Algorand Launches Algo HackJam from June 13 – July 8, 2022

In the realm of blockchain and everything Web3, we’re seeing big shifts happening constantly.

Thousands of innovators work every day to redefine the path of Web3. And we’re thrilled to know that the next big thing could be from you. It could be your first or tenth blockchain project, and we at Algo HackJam want to be there to witness your project ideas come to life.

Create a project that interacts with DeFi, NFTs, or decentralized gaming on the Algorand blockchain infrastructure. Plus, get the chance to win from a prize pool of 30,500 ALGO tokens and build meaningful connections along the way.

We can’t wait to see what you build. It’s time – let’s hack on.

Challenges

01

Novice

This one’s for everyone new to the space – If you’re looking to contribute any idea to the ecosystem by proposing ideas that Algorand can adopt in the future, you’re at the right place. So if you’re looking to learn about the Algorand ecosystem, understand the basic infrastructure of the blockchain, or just contribute the next cool project idea for the chain then this is the track for you.

Put forward your best idea and stand a chance to get the opportunity to attend an Algorand Foundation-organised developer event in September! P.S. Flights & accommodations are paid for.

  • Project submissions to follow Submission Artefacts found in Participant’s Guide.

The open hack of this hackathon with a focus on DeFi, this track encourages hackers to tap into their creativity and explore project ideas to accelerate the development of a next-generation DeFi ecosystem. Here are some project ideas/applications you can build to get you started:

03

Veteran

You asked and we heard. This one’s for all the professionals who’s been in the game for a while now – this is your chance to build something revolving around GameFi dApps.
