🥉 - $2,000 USDC


This will be the first hackathon for GHO and we can’t wait to see what you build!

  • Payments: Build utility around the future of payments on the web. You could create an app or plugin to buy and pay with GHO anywhere.

  • Direct Debit Network: Create a direct debit network for GHO where any user can charge an account with a predefined amount of GHO. GHO would then be transferred immediately but not unlocked until a set period of time passes. During this time, anyone can dispute the function if they have a balance.

  • Account Abstraction: Build a tool that uses Account Abstraction with GHO to allow users to pay gas fees with GHO, and has rebates. E.g., if the gas used is more than GHO paid, users can claim a rebate or pay it forward.

  • DeFi Yield Strategies: Construct new DeFi yield strategies and opportunities for GHO and the entire DeFi community.

  • Analysis: Create a website to monitor and analyze GHO.


Help to build the future of financial applications with Aave V3, the most significant upgrade to the Aave Protocol.

  • Aave Forex Tool: Build a tool where you can short assets. Enhance the ability of users to access forex liquidity by using one or all of eMode, flash loans, and other DeFi integrations such as Curve.

  • ZK Proofs: Utilize ZK proofs for critical vulnerabilities while not disclosing the vulnerability, i.e. prove there’s a vulnerability to the DAO so they can vote on it informed but not actually say what the vulnerability is.

  • Health Factor Simulator: Build a UI component that displays a price slider per each collateral and borrowed asset, so you can simulate prices and see how your Health Factor changes under those conditions. Allowing you to take informed decisions to mitigate liquidation risks.

  • Debt Swap: Right now you can swap your collateral from one asset to another but imagine if you built a new feature for swapping debt from one asset to another.

Be sure you do not expose private keys or other sensitive information through hardcoding or pushing .env files. Make sure your code is well documented on GitHub and preferably has a front end that is available to be used on a public website. If you created smart contracts, deploy them to a testnet and ensure your front end properly interacts with them.

Tell us what you are building by tagging @GHOAave @AaveAave on Twitter and Lens!
