Yes, the Hacker House Smartcon 2023 Challenges are completely free!
Be sure to bring your laptop so you can follow along.
Anyone who got the Hacker House Ticket and did the Check-in.
However, participants who break the rules or don’t follow the Code of Conduct may be expelled.
No. This is a separate event from the main SmartCon 2023 conference, so you don’t need a SmartCon ticket.
We encourage you to attend the main conference on October 2-3, which you can buy a ticket.
The venue is InterContinental Barcelona, Av. de Rius i Taulet, 1-3, 08004.
Yes, we will have bounties available for hackers to build something based on certain technologies or use cases, with the best projects being awarded bounties. For these bounties, please take note that we reserve the right, in our sole discretion, to withhold the distribution of prizes to recipients based on the results of Know Your Customer (KYC) procedures.
Bounty hunting/stacking will be encouraged, meaning you can go after multiple bounties
(ie someone that used 3 services could technically win 15k)
2-5 people per team.
Projects that were not built at the hackathon are not eligible to receive a prize.
This includes projects that were built before the hackathon and projects that were submitted to past hackathons.
We work closely with our partners and sponsors to filter out these projects.
No worries! It’s helpful to have some software engineering experience, but it’s not a requirement.
Projects often need designers, front-end engineers, project managers, and more.
We will also have talks, workshops, and mentors to help you with your project.
This is a great place to learn about all things blockchains and smart contracts.
As soon as the hackathon opens.
To keep the playing field level, we don’t allow teams to begin building prior to the start of the hackathon.
If your project is an upgrade to an existing project, please check with us beforehand.
No, you do not need to record a video.
But you must do a 2 minutes live demo during the Hackers Presentations, Sunday, 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm
The order of the teams will be announced 12:50 pm. Be ready!
Projects are not required to have a frontend. Remix is fine.
No, localhost is fine, if you need it.
All you must do is a live demo.
The team behind each project holds the IP of their project.
Chainlink is the industry standard for building, accessing, and selling oracle services needed to power hybrid smart contracts on any blockchain.
Chainlink oracle networks provide smart contracts with a way to reliably connect to any external API and leverage secure off-chain computations for enabling feature-rich applications.
Chainlink currently helps secure tens of billions of dollars across DeFi, insurance, gaming, and other major industries, and offers global enterprises and leading data providers a universal gateway to all blockchains.
