This is the first season of the Injective Global Hackathon series with participation open to any and all! We will also be hosting technical workshops and developer sessions to help you along in your journey into the Injective universe.

Register Here in order to participate. The hackathon is slated to begin in early March. You can find more information on the official Injective Hackathon website.

What is the Injective Hackathon?

The Injective Global Hackathon is the ultimate builder event for creating tomorrow’s premier Web3 finance applications. During the month-long online hackathon you can launch innovative protocols and dApps with mentorship from industry leaders across crypto.

With world-class VCs, technologists, researchers, projects, and financial institutions all joining to power the next generation of DeFi, the Injective Hackathon will serve as the foremost launchpad for developers seeking to revolutionize the world of Web3.

Injective is witnessing major growth in developer activity and dApp deployments with projects such as Helix, Frontrunner and White Whale launching on chain. Last week, Astroport, one of the largest AMMs in history also selected Injective as its new L1 destination chain. The Injective Hackathon will help to propel the developer ecosystem further on the only lightning fast blockchain built for finance.

Schedule Overview

The hackathon will consist of four discrete phases aimed at guiding you from idea to product release. A detailed schedule will be available on the official Injective Hackathon website in early March when the hackathon begins.

What kind of projects are you looking for?

Injective is a lightning fast L1 that uniquely provides plug-and-play Web3 modules such as the world’s first on-chain derivatives orderbook, binary options, and more so you can rapidly iterate on your ideas. Injective also offers an MEV resistant environment with instant transaction finality and ultra low fees, allowing for the creation of massively scalable user-friendly dApps.

All Web3 developers looking to build game changing ideas are welcome. Some sectors that fit well with the Injective ecosystem include but are not limited to lending, options, derivatives, prediction markets, real world assets, yield generation, exchanges and decentralized finance as a whole. If you are working on the financialization of assets such as synthetics or NFTs, you are also a fit.

Lastly, Web3 is an industry ripe for innovation so we recommend you to register for the Hackathon because more than likely you can find your own niche on Injective in sectors such as infrastructure, developer tooling, and other alternate areas.
