Cryptocurrency specialists and developers, as well as cryptography enthusiasts of all ages are invited to join us for ERGOHACK III.

Regardless of your training and/or specialty in crypto, we want to hear from you! The most important thing is that you have an active interest in blockchain technologies.

Hosted by the Ergo Foundation, ERGOHACK III encourages teams to develop solutions for the mass adoption of blockchain technologies as they relate to financial privacy and security. The projects developed during ERGOHACK III will have the opportunity to then be implemented within the expanding Ergo ecosystem.

As a participant, you will have the opportunity to learn and share the knowledge of our leading blockchain experts through Ask-Me-Anythings and discord channels. Our ERGOHACK III team will strive to encourage you and to help you further your skills and abilities as crypto developers. Outside of scheduled ERGOHACK III events, our educational materials are openly accessible on the Resources page for you to learn more about UTXO based Multi-Stage contracts.

As you prepare for ErgoHack III, we also advise you to explore the resources on ErgoDocs.

Solo participants or teams of two to five people are allowed to participate in ERGOHACK III. If you are interested but do not yet have a team, there is an “i-need-a-team” and “Idea-incubator” chatroom in discord that can assist you: https://discord.gg/VkEtJEP5gA
