Over the course of five weeks, 812 hackers from all over the world gathered to show their builder prowess in Venom’s virtual hackathon. In total, we received 481 project submissions, with teams building projects based on three tracks: i) Web3, NFTs and Gaming, (ii) DeFi and CBDCs, (iii) Tools and Infrastructure.
The Venom Hackathon reflects our strong commitment to the developer community as we onboard the next generation of promising projects in the Venom ecosystem. By organizing 1–1 mentorship sessions and informative Q&A sessions, we endeavored to support developers in their quest toward success. Apart from the $225,000 prize pool, we also provided winning teams the chance to tap into Venom’s extensive network and pitch their project to investors and partners.
Through it all, the buidl spirit burned brightly. The hard work of every participant and the level of creativity is impressive and admirable. We would like to thank all teams for their high level of enthusiasm, and our panel of judges for their insight. Above all, we would like to express our gratitude to our esteemed partners — DoraHacks, Developer DAO, and Hacken — without whom, this hackathon would not have been possible.
And now, for the moment you’ve all been waiting for — meet the winners of the Venom Hackathon!
