30 DAY VIRTUAL HACKATHON

Designed for hackers around the world to build DeFi applications. April 24th - May 24th.

Hosted by

ETHGlobal

Why Virtual?

At ETHGlobal we've organized 14 in-person hackathons around the world to accelerate the Ethereum ecosystem. In doing so, over 10,000 excited developers have applied to join our events and 250 projects have been built.

Earlier this year, we interviewed dozens of companies in this space as well as hackers to understand what they want out of an online hackathon.

We took those learnings, combined them with our experience running world class events, and from these designed a new kind of hackathon playbook for the virtual world.

Frequently Asked Questions

Does HackMoney cost money?


HackMoney is 100% free for hackers. All that we ask of you is that you focus on building your project, check-in with us on your progress regularly, and participate in the community we build around this hackathon. :)


What do I need to know about staking?


Hackers are required to RSVP by staking $50 USD. This ensures teams will stay motivated and active for the duration of the event. After submitting a project at the end of the event, the stake will be returned to you.


How many people can be on a team?


You can form teams of up to 5 people. There are no restrictions for team members, so you can team up with hackers of any country or experience level!
