The ETHAccra Hackathon brings together the Ethereum community of developers to compete and build innovative projects using the Ethereum blockchain and connecting the blockchain technology to real use cases.
Everyone is able to apply to be a hacker but the organisation will manually select and curate the candidates. Entries for all hackers will be free of charge.
Bringing together developers and builders from diverse backgrounds, the hackathon will encourage the creation of new applications that can help address local problems in West Africa and advance the Ethereum community in West Africa.
The scope of this hackathon is to build and present projects that can have impact in real use cases.
The hackathon will be “Open Track”, there are no “predefined” themes, but every project should be related to the Ethereum ecosystem.
🏆 Total prize pool is USD 8000. Learn about all the individual bounties under the categories page.
Submitted projects should have:
📌 Project / Team name

📌 1 Discord username for the team’s person of contact
📌 Repository with project’s code
📌 Video demo (90 seconds) and/or Presentation (10 slides max)

💡 Judging / Presentation Criteria💡
📌 Each team has 7 minutes in total (4 minutes for the presentation and 3 minutes for Q&A with judges)
💡 How to present your project?💡
📌 Speak slowly and clearly
📌 Do a few practice takes, pace yourself and avoid filler sounds like "uhm"
📌 Avoid echo-ey sound — a good microphone can help, or try a different room with better acoustics, maybe even a closet
📌 Keep introductions and project summary to be less than 20 seconds — don't spend too much time on backstory
📌 Crop out any needless waiting time e.g., Metamask TX confirmations
📌 If you need to fill out a form or switch between views, keep them ready in multiple tabs
📌 Use slides to summarise key information
📌 Make sure to use max. 4 bullet points per slide
