One of the biggest global Web3 hackathons, BUIDLIT, with $500,000 in prizes to be won, has ongoing registrations.
But before you rush over to the registration page, here’s everything you need to know about the hackathon.
The BUIDL hackathon is organized by Polygon, a decentralized Ethereum scaling platform that enables developers to build scalable user-friendly dApps with low transaction fees without ever sacrificing security. The hackathon has been organized to help you tap into Web3 and build your own decentralized application #OnPolygon.
What you need to Register as a Developer for BUIDLIT
In order to compete for the $500,000 in prizes as a developer, you have to build and submit a scalable decentralized application on Polygon within one of the tracks (see our previous article).
When this is done, you will need to provide a URL to your code repository for judging and testing. Code must be public or access provided to the judges. It is recommended to add the Smart contracts deployment links (polygonscan) in the project description (Polygon Mainnet / Testnet).
You will also need to include a video (about 3-5 minutes) that shows off your project working and why you built it. Videos can be uploaded to YouTube, Vimeo, or Facebook Video and made public.
What you need to Register as a Designer for BUIDLIT
Designers will have to solve UX/UI problems within the Web3 space and submit a Designathon Submission.
To be eligible, you will need to pick a dApp idea or create your own and create a design prototype that solves UX problems. You can then submit your prototype with a Project Description, a 5-minute Explanation Video, and the High Fidelity Prototype here: https://buidlit.devpost.com/details/designathon/#form.
The design projects will be judged based on their High Fidelity working prototype, Presentation of Case Study, User flow and thought process, Branding and design, and Problem-solving.
Now go forth and create!
