The #Moneta Hacks — Open innovation on the Junø interoperable smart contract network.

The Moneta Hacks are the largest incentivised smart contract challenges in the world. Kickoff will be the completion of the Juno-1 main-net upgrade to support Cosmwasm. Finally developers from across the world may deploy smart contracts onto the permission-less interoperable smart contract base layer called Juno.

Via the Oct 1st genesis a total of 2.3 Million $JUNO ie $ 28,000,000.00 were allocated to JunoHacks. A total of 1.15 Million JUNO is going to the Moneta Hacks currently valued at $ 14,000,000.00

The Moneta Hacks are split into 4 stages. Each stage will last 180 days.

Stage 1 Q1 + Q2 2022 (180 days)……..287,000 JUNO

Stage 2 Q3+Q4 2022 (180 days)………287,000 JUNO

Stage 3 Q1+Q2 2023 (180 days)………287,000 JUNO

Stage 4 Q3+Q4 2023 (180 days)………287,000 JUNO

There are several categories already being covered from JunoHack phase 1 were developers are now looking to deploy onto main-net.

Dapp/Contract categories that need to be covered for the #Moneta Hacks:

🌱 Interchain Contracts/usecases (Very high priority)

Driving value to the cosmos ecosystem as a whole and bringing value back to Juno via IBC focussed contracts. Deployed on Juno, but are specifically designed to interact with contracts/dapps on other SDK based networks in the cosmos ecosysstem.

🌱 Decentralized Finance — Defi (Very high priority)

AMM/DEX, Lending/Borrowing, Derivatives/Super Fluid Staking etc.

🌱 Non Fungible Tokens (High priority)

Marketplaces, Inter NFT applications & inter-nft standard improvements.

🌱 Decentralized Autonomous Organizations — DAOs (Very high priority)

🌱 Gaming/Gamification (High priority)

🌱 Privacy (High priority)

Privacy preserving protocols on Juno (Example: https://scramble.cash/)

🌱 Community Expansion (High priority)

Organic ways to expand the Juno community. This includes Medium articles, Seminars, Forum discussions, Workshops, Educational Youtube videos, Artwork and more.

🌱 Tooling (High Priority)

UI for interacting with smart contracts. UI for uploading smart contracts
