Ergo Hackathons have become a principal and defining feature of the community over the last year. In just a short amount of time, Ergohacks have helped build tools and dApps that are now key pieces of infrastructure in the Ergo ecosystem. Though these events started out as competitions, one of the greatest outcomes has been the retention and expansion of community developers actively working to build DeFi on Ergo. 

Ergo’s next hackathon, ErgoHack V, will run in partnership with the Djed Alliance, Flux Network, & Alephium Platform, and be a blend of previous competitions with a ubiquitous focus paying attention to all key matters that are internal & external to the environment; ErgoHack participants will be encouraged to explore the realms of Web3, stablecoins, DeFi, and more. The event will span over a two week period starting on the 3rd of October and ending on the 16th October – registrations will be opening on the 12th September! As has been in the past, the competition will welcome solo and team participants (of up to 6 people in the group) to the Ergo Discord Server. There, participants can chat with mentors and find other possible teammates (if they are looking for additional members).

Hackathon participants will be free to pursue and build projects that span a variety of DeFi use cases. Utilizing DeFi’s composable building blocks, developers can enjoy the ability to tap into their creativity and build entirely new financial services. If you are looking for suggestions, our judges have prepared some suggestions for products that could be built on Ergo. However, there are no limits and participants are encouraged to submit ideas that explore their inspirations.

Are you ready to build the future of blockchain?
