The ETHChicago Hackathon is a three-day builder and creative IRL event where participants compete to win bounties sponsored by our partners. Bounties consist of tying together new technology in the blockchain space, innovating and learning from each other about existing blockchain tools, or solving real-world use cases with the unique properties of decentralized technology.
Anyone interested in decentralized technology is welcome, including developers, creatives, business leaders, students, and enthusiasts from all walks of life. Our community is diverse, inclusive, and open to all.
For those who want to participate in Hackathon, the rules are as follows:
Please utilize our docs for starter kits, useful links, and tools.
Novice hackers are encouraged to read our Hackathon Preparation Guide.
ETHChicago and its organizers do not take any responsibility for the security of hackers' digital wallets, personal devices, or any other belongings. Participants are responsible for their personal items throughout the event. We highly recommend that all participants take the necessary precautions, such as two-factor authentification, using strong passwords, VPN when possible, and keeping devices up-to-date with security patches.
Drinks and light food will be provided during the 3-day ETHChicago Hackathon.
