For the next two weeks, Gitcoin and Ethereal Summit are running the Ethereal Blocks virtual hackathon. The AirSwap team has posted bounties to use two new building blocks: the new AirSwap Trader widget and AirSwap Protocols.

AirSwap is a decentralized token trading network built on Ethereum. It’s peer-to-peer, a simple but powerful design that scales without common pitfalls in decentralized trading. To learn more about AirSwap, check out Why AirSwap or visit our Website. Join our Discord server to chat with the team.

Challenge #1: Build for DeFi with AirSwap Trader

Full details at

$2,000 Dai

AirSwap Trader is an embeddable widget you can use to add peer-to-peer trading features to any web app. Bulletin boards, conversational trading (OTC), and marketplaces can all be built with Trader widget to create and execute decentralized trades.

This bounty challenges you to do just that. Build a trading web app that embeds AirSwap Trader to create and execute trades for ERC-20 or ERC-721 (NFT) tokens. Where possible, your application should use other decentralized technologies for messaging or data stores.

Check out the Trader widget documentation.

Imagine a digital collectible marketplace, chat app for over-the-counter (OTC) trading, message board for obscure ERC-20s, a destination to buy and sell tokenized artwork, and more. The sky’s the limit and we encourage you to think outside of the box!

Challenge #2: Build a Token Launcher with AirSwap

Full details at

$2,000 Dai

The new AirSwap Protocols introduce onchain peers, that is, smart contracts that are deployed with trading rules. They do not take deposits, but trade your balances on your behalf. These trading rules can effectively provide a simple tool to perform a token launch.

This bounty challenges you to do just that. Build a token launcher that lets a seller deploy an onchain peer and set a rule to sell up to a certain amount of tokens at a certain price. For buyers, there should be a way to browse and participate in launches.

There is a PeerFactory available, which our team will deploy beforehand that your submission may use rather than directly deploying contracts within the application. Otherwise, the tokens must be ERC-20, and both Peer and PeerFactory are currently only suitable for testnet use.

Check out the Onchain Peer documentation.

Creating tokens is one thing, launching them is another. This is a challenge that directly positively impacts the ability for the Ethereum ecosystem to grow as more tokens come online. We welcome you to be creative and look forward to your work!

Brand Guidelines

We hope you build new applications that create value for the ecosystem. Submissions should not be branded with the AirSwap logo, colors, or other graphic elements, but should instead indicate that they are “Powered by AirSwap” or a part of the “AirSwap Network” with links to the official website if you’d like.

Join on Gitcoin to Participate

Register on Gitcoin to get started. It’s a two-week hackathon, with submissions due on September 11th at 11:59pm ET. The AirSwap team will judge and announce winners the following day on September 12th.
