Polkastarter x Blokness NFT Hackathon

This November, Polkastarter partnered with Blokness, an NFT data API platform, to create a Hackathon event with unbelievable prizes and unlimited potential for innovation.

The initiative aims to push developers, people, projects, and enthusiasts to leverage the power of blockchain NFT technology without the need for extensive knowledge or experience. From creating an NFT tax software to building a hospitality loyalty program, the sky’s the limit for creativity. 


We are looking for submissions that leverage NFT technology to create real-world value with a potentially sustainable business model underlying it.


  • NFT appraisal service that Defi protocols could use to evaluate the collateral value
  • Play & Earn guild tooling to manage player performance
  • NFT Tax software, enables users to manage their tax obligations
  • NFT-based hospitality loyalty programs
  • CRM software for NFT-enabled businesses

We understand that 3 days aren't enough to get to a final product, but we expect the submissions to show the direction the teams want to go with and their ability to execute.
