Announcing the winners of LUKSO’s biggest hackathon to date

9 min readSep 16, 2022

LUKSO’s BUILD UP! #1 hackathon has officially ended and we are thrilled with the response and incredible projects that were submitted. The 6-week hackathon was launched to help developers around the world to discover Universal Profiles and the LUKSO Standard Proposals (LSPs), as well as our developer tools and libraries. These new standards enabled participants to build a variety of applications that could simply not be built before with such ease!

The hackathon offered $500k in prizes across 11 bounties which were divided into five broad project categories: Universal Profiles Tools, Social & DAOs, Fashion, Art, Music & Entertainment (FAME), Multiverse & Gaming and Blue Sky.

With over 500 signups, 74 project submissions, and 10 hours of live educational content created for participants, the hackathon empowered both novice and experienced developers to build the next generation of dApps on Universal Profiles.

Thanks to all the participants, judges, and community members who made the LUKSO BUILD UP! #1 hackathon a great success.
