Optimism

$20,000

About

Optimism is a low-cost, lightning-fast Ethereum-equivalent L2 blockchain. Working to scale Ethereum’s technology and values, OP Labs is on a mission to build the most secure, stable, and decentralized blockchain, and the Optimism Foundation is seeding and growing an ecosystem that drives global adoption of the Optimism protocol.

Prizes

Optimism is offering:

🛠 Developer Infrastructure/tooling: 3 teams win $ 2,500 per team

No matter how amazing we make the Optimism network it will never succeed without developers! This prize is for developer tooling and infrastructure. You could win if your project makes it easier to build on Optimism, makes development more approachable or generally improves the development process!

👯‍♀️ Best Bedrock/OP Stack Hack: 1 team wins $2,500

The OP Stack is a series of modules that make it easy as pie to build your own blockchain. Although the OP Stack is still heavily in development, we’re looking for teams to start experimenting by modifying our Bedrock node to do new and wacky things! Maybe you’ll try modifying the data availability layer to support EIP-4844, maybe you’ll modify op-geth to support EIP-1153, or maybe you’ll replace the entire execution engine with a Game Boy emulator (yes, someone did that). The sky’s the limit, give it a shot and see what kind of wild ideas you can come up with!

🎮 Optimism Games & NFT Infrastructure: 2 teams wins $ 2,500 per team

From NFT card games to open-world explorations, we want it all! If your project is a game or makes the NFT world better (i.e no code NFT deployers) then you qualify for this prize!

🫡 govTech & Community Infrastructure: 2 teams win $ 2,500 per team**

Crypto would be a sad, empty space without communities. It would also be very web2 if not for the decentralising force of DAOs and governance! This category is super broad but we are looking for things that make managing a web3 community easier, or make governance more accessible. If you are not sure if your project would count, message us! This category also includes retroPGF-style projects!

🏊‍♀️ Top 10 projects (that don’t win another OP prize!) to deploy on Optimism (mainnet, Goerli testnet or Bedrock testnet) get $250 for the team.

UMA & Across

$10,000

About

UMA is an optimistic oracle (OO) that can verify any statement proposed on the blockchain. Using economic incentives, the OO tells smart contracts “things about the world” so contracts and markets asking for that data can be settled. 

Across, UMA's sister project is a cross-chain bridge that supports cheap, secure, and near-instantaneous transfers between L2s and to L1. Across transfers are secured by UMA’s optimistic oracle. 

Builders can use OO as a decentralized truth machine that is flexible enough to handle ambiguity and real-world data with human-powered dispute resolution. UMA’s OO secures and empowers a diverse set of Web3 applications, including cross-chain bridges, insurance protocols, prediction markets and customizable DAO tooling products.

Prizes

UMA's OO expands what can be built in Web3 and there are many use cases that haven't been thought of yet. We're looking for submissions that build new and innovative on-chain protocols that require off-chain, cross-chain, or aggregated data verified by our oracle.

By hacking on Across you will help to strengthen and broaden the bridging ecosystem and increase adoption of L2s. To do this, we need projects that improve scalability, security, and simplicity — and help to provide solid bridging infrastructure that people use without hesitation. 

  • 🥇- $5,000

Hyperlane

$10,000

About

Hyperlane is an interoperability platform providing an interchain messaging API empowering you to easily and securely communicate between blockchains. You can use Hyperlane to build interchain applications, or you can use it to conduct actions on remote chains without deploying any contracts by leveraging Hyperlane's Interchain Accounts.

Prizes

🏆 Top prize - 4k 'Best use of Hyperlane' messaging API

  • To win this prize you simply need to build an application that utilizes the messaging API to establish interchain connectivity. You could be passing messages or assets. You could be making cross-chain view calls or oraclize data between blockchains. There is really no end to what you could build, but given that time is of the essence you don’t want to expand scope too much.
  • A great way to shoot for the top prize is to attempt to make an interchain version of a popular app, i.e. an interchain Compound or Sudoswap.

💸 2k - Best use of Hyperlane - DeFi related

  • As noted above there are many ways you can win our prizes, but here are some DeFi related ideas:
  • You could use our Interchain Accounts API to create an app that allows for interchain swaps without having to deploy any contracts on remote chains.
  • You could create an interchain Stableswap, accepting deposits of assets on multiple chains and creating unified liquidity pools.
  • You could create a contract that allows you to control multiple SAFEs or DAOs on remote chains. Using Interchain Accounts you could do this without having to deploy any additional logic on the receiving chains.
  • You could create interchain payment streaming contracts, collecting deposits on a number of chains and directing assets to their destinations.

🌠 2k - Best use of Hyperlane - NFT related

  • You could create an interchain minting contract that acts as a load balancer between chains, i.e collecting orders on several chains (with lower fees or higher throughput) and executing the mint on a different chain.
  • You could create an interchain nft collection where the NFTs have different properties based on the chain they’re currently on.

🏗 2k - Best use of Hyperlane - Infrastructure

  • With respect to infrastructure, here’s a chance to build infrastructure either for Hyperlane or build infrastructure for other protocols that uses Hyperlane.
  • For example, a previous Hyperlane prize winner built infrastructure that supports Hyperlane relayers

Tellor

$5,000

About

Tellor is a decentralized oracle protocol that incentivizes an open, permissionless network of data reporting and data validation, ensuring that data can be provided by anyone and checked by everyone.

Built for any data type, our network of reporters supports your basic spot prices, more sophisticated pricing specs (TWAP/VWAP), Random Numbers, Snapshot Vote Results, or any custom data needs you have. If your data can be verified, Tellor can bring it on-chain.

Prizes

🎉 Tellor is offering a $5000 prize pool for integrations with the top amounts going to projects that meet these two requirements:

  • ✅ Submit link to deployed and verified contract that integrates “Using Tellor”
  • ✅ Use the Tellor contracts to configure incentives for tipping/paying testnet reporters to provide your data - must submit a tx hash of this tip/payment. OR submit transaction using Tellor Playground Refer to Hacker’s Guide to learn more.

The key take-away is that we want to see true usage of Tellor demonstrated by those two requirements. (Don’t worry, we’ll guide you through it!)

Findora

$5,000

About

Scaling privacy for the future of Web3.

Findora builds privacy through advanced zero-knowledge proof cryptography. An innovative layer-1, it combines a native UTXO ledger optimized for privacy with an EVM extension for programmability and interoperability. Developers can leverage either model as they build dApps with auditable privacy.

We appreciate our developers and would love to onboard you to the Findora ecosystem. Please reach out, and join our social channels for more.

Discord | Twitter | Telegram | Medium | LinkedIn | Facebook | Reddit

Prizes

🏆 Findora is offering:

$5,000 for single winner

Developers can pick from either two option below when building their Findora EVM Dapps.

  • Best use of Private Transfer (or Private Cross-chain Transfer) SDK
  • Best Use of zkDID SDK 

Workshop

Getting Started

Findora Private Transactions

Findora’s Privacy Routing SDK will allow developers to mask certain attributes from on-chain transactions: sender/receiver address, asset type, and asset amount. Using the SDK, developers can send private transactions from one Findora EVM address to another Findora EVM address.

Learn more about the Privacy Routing SDK

Zero-Knowledge Decentralized ID (zkDID)

Findora’s zkdid-js SDK consists of a collection of APIs to create decentralized identifiers (DIDs), credentials and proofs to enable DID holders to prove credential data (i.e. private information) about themselves in a zero-knowledge (zk) manner.

Zero-knowledge refers to the ability to cryptographically verify data without disclosing the exact credential value (i.e. cryptographically enable the verification that a DID holder’s credential contains credit score is above 700 — without revealing the exact number to the verifier).

For a conceptual overview of DIDs, credentials and the stakeholders in the credentialing and verification processes, visit the zkDID and Credentials modules section of Findora’s documentation. Also, please see the official W3C DID specification.

Learn more about the zkDID SDK

Support & Resources

Findora developers will be attending the onsite event in San Francisco to help support the hackathon participants. Additionally, developers may use the Findora Discord channel to ask questions and speak to a specialist from the team.

$5,000

About

Midpoint is the easiest way to connect your blockchain application to traditional web endpoints.

Midpoint makes it easy for developers to make any HTTP call from within a smart contract, without running any infrastructure and in one line of Solidity. Unlike traditional oracle networks, Midpoint allows developers to make requests with on-chain parameters, multi-step authentication workflows, and private off-chain data. Midpoint is natively multi-chain and can respond to requests across EVM chains. Every day developers use Midpoint to connect their contracts to new services and endpoints - ones that we (Midpoint Labs) - have never heard of.
