Liquity Sponsors #HackMoney2021

We’re excited to announce that we’re sponsoring ETHGlobal’s Hack Money 2021 event taking place June 18th—July 9th!

The application deadline has been extended to June 17th, apply here.

Interest-free Borrowing

Liquity is a decentralized borrowing protocol that allows you to draw 0% interest loans against ETH used as collateral. Loans are paid out in LUSD — a USD pegged stablecoin, and need to maintain a minimum collateral ratio as low as 110%.

In addition to the collateral, the loans are secured by a Stability Pool containing LUSD and by fellow borrowers collectively acting as guarantors of last resort. Learn more about these mechanisms here.

Liquity as a protocol is non-custodial, immutable, and governance-free.

Since our launch on April 5, 2021, Liquity has grown to become the 9th largest Ethereum-based DeFi protocol with over 5,000 members on Discord and a community of 20+ Frontend Operators contributing to the decentralization of the protocol.

Need Inspiration?

We hope to keep this hackathon as open-ended as possible, but definitely understand if you need help with ideas. Our community has shared a few areas of interest over the past few weeks including:

  • Trove management tools (avoiding liquidations, redemptions, etc.)
  • Migration tools (Maker to Liquity, Compound to Liquity, etc.)
  • Auto-leveraging / deleveraging tools
  • One-click multi-tasking using DS Proxy (e.g. claim LQTY rewards + stake)
  • Products that increase LUSD demand by utilizing Curve, Yearn, Pickle Finance, or other integrations.

Feel free to search our Discord for more ideas or ask us in the #sponsor-liquity channel of the ETHGlobal Discord.

We also hosted a hackathon before our April launch, you can see the winning projects here.


  • 🥇 First place: $2,500 in LQTY
  • 🥈 Second place: $1,500 in LQTY
  • 🥉 Third place: $1,500 in LQTY
  • 🌊 Pool (split between all valid submissions): $1,500 in LQTY

Note: LQTY is Liquity’s secondary token. It can be earned by Liquity users and staked to earn revenue generated by the protocol.
