Nouns is a community-owned brand that makes a positive impact by funding ideas and fostering collaboration. From collectors and technologists to non-profits and brands, Nouns is for everyone.

Nounish. In the Nouniverse, there's a popular adjective to describe things with a Nouns vibe. This includes doing good, creating positive externalities, embracing absurdity and difference, teaching people about Nouns and crypto, and having fun. In other words, anything that helps to spread Nouns and crypto adoption.

Nouns Prize. This is the newly-introduced Nouns Prize at ETHGlobal hackathons. It is perfect for collaborating with Nouns for the first time, providing an ideal opportunity to build something nounish over a weekend.

We invite developers, designers, product folks, and everyone else to team up for an entire weekend of building, creating, experimenting, innovating, and keeping Nouns weird. Hackers are encouraged to submit any project they believe will benefit the Nouns and web3 ecosystem. Make sure always to keep the Nounish vibe!
