About

At Optimism, we're on a mission to scale Ethereum to the masses and sustainably fund public goods in the process!From the code to the values, we are Ethereum-aligned. We believe Ethereum has the potential to solve some of humanity’s most crucial coordination issues. Since our initial inception as a non-profit research group, we have sought to scale both its technology and values.At present the most pressing bottleneck to the growth of Ethereum is its performance and scalability. We are building the most elegant solution to this problem. We do this out in the open because we believe in open source and its ability to accelerate innovation.Not only do we improve Ethereum's performance by orders of magnitude, we donate 100% of the profits generated from doing so to Ethereum public goods. We do this because we believe the future of the open internet is too important to be left to chance. By operating as a Public Benefit Corporation we're able to align private incentives with public good and create a positive-sum economic model that provides a sustainable future for the internet.

Prizes

🏆 Boba is offering:

🥇 - $10,000

🥈 - $6,000

🥉 - $4,000

The goal is for you to develop a dapp on the BOBA NETWORK. 

We have one set of prizes, with two challenges. You can choose which one you work on.

First is a dapp that is connected with WEB2. Your solution can take data from WEB2 APIs and bring it on-chain, or be a web3 extension of an existing app... This challenge is industry agnostic with the only point being added value to the user. 

The second challenge is to create a simple, but fun game deployed on the Boba Network testnet. Ideally, it's a game that users return to and want to play every day. 

If you're looking for ideas we have listed some of them here: https://github.com/bobanetwork/hackathons

Also, to read more about the capabilities of the Boba Network please refer to our docs: https://github.com/bobanetwork/boba#readme

We will look at all the submission from both challenges jointly.

Superfluid

$10,000

About

Superfluid is the leading asset streaming protocol that enables Web3 native subscriptions, salaries and rewards for DAOs and crypto-native businesses. It can be used to describe cash flows and execute them automatically on-chain over time in a non-interactive way. Superfluid streams transfer value in a constant flow over time between wallets, in a non-custodial and permissionless way. Streams are programmable, composable, and modular, allowing developers to build custom applications on top of the protocol. No capital is locked up, and all inflows and outflows are netted in real-time at every block without consuming any gas. Ongoing streams can be forwarded as they are received to both wallets and applications, eliminating delays and drastically increasing capital efficiency.

BitDAO

$10,000

About

BitDAO is a collective of builders and stakeholders enabling mutually beneficial web3 ecosystems of people, products, and public goods. We utilize our treasury of billions in assets to grow an ecosystem of Autonomous Entities (AEs) with a shared vision for the future — driving the development of web3 tools and technologies across industries including arts, education, media, finance, gaming, and technology — and providing a return to the treasury.

Website | Docs | Twitter | Telegram | Discord | Discourse | Snapshot

Prizes

🏆 BitDAO is offering:

  • 🥇 - $5,000 in BIT
  • 🥈 - $3,000 in BIT
  • 🥉 - $1000 in BIT
  • 💪 Runner Ups x 2 - $500 in BIT

Track 1: DAO Treasury Deployment Tooling

Large DAO treasuries have to be managed conservatively to avoid principal loss through systemic failure, oracle misfires or other mechanical exploits.

We are looking for solutions (tooling, operating structures, etc.) that would allow DAOs to deploy their treasuries at size for yield. For example:

  • A Gnosis Safe module that allows whitelisting and passive deployment of treasury assets to blue chip yield farms.
  • Collateralized / margin loans (P2P, pools).

Track 2: DAO Proposals Processes

In the current state of governance, the majority of DAO proposals are created in private, with the initial version presented on DAO forums typically having already been reviewed by core team members and large stakeholders. This process can take several months, and is usually unpaid.

DAOs have many tradeoffs versus traditional organizations (especially with execution efficiency), but one of their primary benefits is to leverage a wider range of community contributions for ideas and development; something that isn’t happening with the current status quo.

We’re looking for solutions to incentivize the construction of DAO proposals in a public and incremental way, with DAO members being able to signal which parts they support or are opposed to.

Situations where this may be beneficial to the ideation process include:

  • Rebrandings (allowing for feedback during the design process).
  • Protocol functionality upgrades.
  • Protocol parameter changes.
  • New business initiatives.

Likely solutions will need to leverage some combination of token gating and existing popular DAO communication tools (Discourse, Discord, Snapshot, grant solutions, etc.)

Swivel

$5,000

About

Swivel is the most efficient protocol for fixed-rate lending and rate trading. At our core, we decompose yield bearing deposits (e.g. cTokens, fTokens, etc.,) into two components: 

A. Yield Tokens -- Represent the claim to future yield

B. Principal Tokens -- Represent the claim to the principal deposit

This mechanism then enables the creation of instruments like fixed-rates (selling future yield) or alternative yield-generation strategies through the trade of yield tokens.

Prizes

🏆 Swivel is offering:

Best creative integration, "Hackathon Idea" or trading strategy implementation:

🥇 - $2500

🥈 - $1500

🥉 - $1000

Reservoir

$5,000

About

Reservoir is a developer platform that enables the next generation of NFT products. Reservoir aggregates NFT orders from across the Ethereum ecosystem and makes this liquidity available and fillable through easy-to-use API endpoints. The Reservoir API surfaces aggregate NFT liquidity from popular NFT marketplaces, alongside ethereum blockchain ownership data and NFT metadata, making it as easy as possible to build new NFT applications and experiences.

The Reservoir API and SDK give access to:

  • Aggregated liquidity from popular NFT marketplaces (OpenSea, LooksRare, X2Y2, Foundation, Reservoir)
  • Granular price data with flexible querying options
  • Raw order objects and SDK helpers, for executing buys and sells
  • Detailed metadata that can be used to analyze data (e.g. trait floors)
  • Advanced order types, like collection and trait-wide bids
  • Signed price oracles to bring pricing data on-chain

The API is powered by an open-source Indexer that runs entirely off open and permissionless data sources. This means there are no centralized gatekeepers to depend on. You can use a hosted version of the API to quickly get up and running, or run your own node if you need more control.

Prizes

🏆 Reservoir is offering:

💰Jackpot Prize $5,000 - Best integration of Reservoir

Element Finance

$5,000

About

Element is an open source protocol for fixed and variable yields. At its core, the Protocol works by enabling users to split the base asset (ETH, wBTC, USDC, DAI) of yield generating positions, such as a Yearn vault or an ETH2 validator, into two separate, fungible tokens: the Principal Token (PT), and the Yield Token (YT). One token represents the value of the base principal (called the Principal Token), and one token represents the variable interest gained from the yield generating protocol (called the Yield Token).

Prizes

🏆 Element Finance is offering:

🥇 1) Best new yield source - What fixed source would you like to see in Element?

  • eg) mStable Save as a source of fixed rates for Element
  • Prize $2,500 

🔥 2) Best structured product - Use Element as part of a structured product

  • eg) a yearn strategy that uses Element as a yield source
  • Prize $1,250
