Save the date: the hackathon will run from July 7th to August 7th. Register now to secure your spot!
The Sway Summer Hackathon is a virtual event that welcomes developers from around the world to showcase their skills and innovative ideas. We want to push the boundaries of what's possible with the Sway language and the Fuel blockchain, and we invite you to be a part of this exciting opportunity. The hackathon will be hosted on the DoraHacks platform, a renowned global hackathon organizer with a proven track record of successful events.
We're calling on developers to tackle one of our six bounty categories:
User Onboarding Experience:
We're looking for innovative ideas and implementations to improve the onboarding experience for new users of applications built with Sway. Consider solutions that minimize or eliminate transaction costs for new users, such as gasless transactions. The goal is to make it easy and intuitive for newcomers to get started with Sway and Fuel-based applications.
Innovative Payment Applications:
We're interested in groundbreaking payment applications built with Sway for the Fuel blockchain. Think outside the box and create applications around concepts like stablecoins, micro-payments, and other novel payment methods. Let's challenge the status quo and revolutionize digital transactions.
Decentralized Web Infrastructure:
This bounty focuses on building a more resilient and decentralized web infrastructure using Sway on the Fuel blockchain. Projects in this category could include decentralized identifiers (DIDs), decentralized domain name systems (DNS), software supply chain hardening, and other related areas. Let's contribute to a more secure and reliable decentralized web.
Privacy and security are of utmost importance. For this bounty, we're seeking applications or enhancements built with Sway that can improve privacy and security within the Fuel ecosystem. This could involve encryption methods, anonymization techniques, or advanced security protocols.
DeFi / RWA:
Decentralized Finance (DeFi) and Real World Assets (RWA) are key pillars of the blockchain revolution. We're looking for applications built with Sway for the Fuel blockchain that bring new and innovative solutions to DeFi or bridge the gap between DeFi and RWA.
Cross-chain interoperability is crucial for the blockchain ecosystem. In this bounty category, we're interested in solutions built with Sway that enhance interoperability between Fuel and other chains. Let's create more open and interconnected blockchain ecosystems.
To ensure the Sway Summer Hackathon promotes originality and value to the Fuel ecosystem, we've set the following judging criteria:
Ecosystem Fit: Does the project fill a missing need in the Fuel ecosystem? We're looking for solutions that cover new ground.
Originality: We're seeking fresh approaches. Please avoid Uniswap clones or unoriginal ports of protocols from other chains.
Impact: Does the project have a viable path to adoption that will uplift the Fuel ecosystem?
Architecture: We're particularly interested in projects that leverage the unique features of the Fuel protocol, such as UTXO for state minimization, parallelism, and improved UX.
To participate, please ensure the following:
Your project must be a public open-source GitHub repository.
Submit a pitch deck summarizing every feature of your project or a detailed readme file.
A small demo video (maximum 5 minutes) is recommended but not required.
Submit your work before the deadline.
