Everscale Gitcoin Elysium Hackathon : Report on the event and submissions

The third Everscale blockchain-based hackathon ended on November 28, 2022. More than 80 submissions were delivered over the four weeks from more than 120 participants, of which 15 impressive projects made it to the finals. A special feature of the hackathon was the development of submissions taking into account FT and NFT standards and the unique features provided by the Everscale architecture, as well as the use of the tools provided by the hackathon partners.

The Everscale Gitcoin Elysium Hackathon is an event aimed at raising awareness and attracting attention to the Everscale blockchain among developers, interface designers, project managers, and enthusiasts, and, of course, at encouraging creative and innovative approaches and extraordinary technical solutions in creating products, applications, and promising ecosystem projects.

The event was organized online on the Gitcoin platform, supported by partners and teams from Everscale, Broxus, Qamon, and Ylide.

The participants of the hackathon performed well in such bounties as GameFi, Onchain Composability, Wallet-to-Wallet communication, and Decentralized cross-chain applications, and in their projects they demonstrated a number of finished Web3 applications, games, and solutions that improve user experience. The creators of the best projects shared a prize pool of $43,000.

We congratulate all the winners and invite you to take a closer look at each project.

This was the second Elysium hackathon hosted this year, and the results were tremendous. We’re seeing a lot of new people from outside of the Everscale community trying their hand at building on top of Everscale. Hosting a hackathon is a great way to attract more developers to the ecosystem, and Elysium is definitely proving this to be the case. We would like once again to thank all the participants and congratulate the winners! Let’s build the best ever scaling ecosystem and bring crypto adoption to the world together!
