Hyperlane is the permissionless interoperability layer pioneering a modular security architecture that empowers developers to own and customize their security stack. With Hyperlane, anyone can bring interoperability anywhere, the interoperability layer purpose built for the modular blockchain world.


🥇Top prize - $4,000 - Best use of Permissionless Interoperability To qualify to win this prize you simply need to deploy Hyperlane on a new blockchain or Rollup. Once deployed, how you utilize your new-found interoperability capabilities will dictate how likely you are to win the grand prize! Could you be the first one to bring Hyperlane to Scroll? Or Fuel? What about other chains participating in the hack? You could even deploy to your own chain! Examples would include deploying to your own rollup created via Celestia, Optimism, Polygon, or any rollup toolkit you’d like to use! Permissionless Interoperability related submissions will be eligible for smaller prizes, such as the Warp Route or Scaling Infrastructure prizes 💸 $2,000 - Best use of Hyperlane Warp Routes Warp Routes are Hyperlane’s unique take on token bridging. They are unique and instanced expression of bridging as opposed to the traditional omnibus token bridge design. Each Warp Route can have its own security model, using Hyperlane’s Interchain Security Modules. Perhaps most importantly, Warp Routes are completely permissionless! No one can stop you from bringing whichever asset you’d like to any chain you’d like. So how can you win this prize? While the only strict requirement is that you use Warp Routes in your submission, the more creative you get with it the better! Here are some ideas about what you could do Create the first bridge to a new chain! This would also make you eligible for the grand prize 😉 Leverage Warp Route’d assets in an app of your design for a boost to an already strong submission Use Warp Routes to create interchain NFTs or bridge existing collections 🏗 $2,000 - Hyperlane Powered Scaling Infrastructure Use Hyperlane to navigate between networks and create scalability focused infrastructure! While there is no specific form these should take, here are some ideas we’ve thought about: Blockchain Smart Router. Imagine being able to route computation to the cheapest blockchain within the Hyperlane network, and then being able to retrieve or read that state whenever necessary from your home chain. Effectively turning any blockchain into your layer 2 and beyond. This will be incredibly challenging to build, but the rewards will be far greater than you can imagine! For NFTs, 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.
