To celebrate our Mainnet launch on October 29th, we are super excited to announce our first virtual hackathon, Hacking Decentralized Commerce, in collaboration with Gitcoin!

Conflux Network is developing the technology to build the future of commerce which is more collaborative, equitable and decentralized! The hackathon starts right after our mainnet launch to propel the DApp ecosystem. Come build on a faster, safer PoW blockchain network that has the familiarity of Solidity compatibility and has new mechanisms to build with!

Explore the familiar parts of Conflux Network with:

  • Solidity smart contracts
  • Truffle development environment customized for Conflux
  • SDKs in various languages like Javascript, Go, Java

Experiment with new mechanisms to build next-generation applications:

  • Transactions sponsorship for driving user adoption
  • Native staking on a PoW network
  • Operational cross-chain asset bridge for wrapping assets to and from Ethereum

There are two main tracks to participate in this hackathon. The first track focuses on building new DApps and products for DeFi, NFTs, payments, marketplaces, and core infrastructure. The second track is co-sponsored by our partners Aave and Chainlink for the integration of the Conflux Network with partner technologies.

What to expect:

Each track has its own respective prizes and challenges. Hackers are welcome to make submissions that combine both tracks and can be considered for multiple prizes.
