This is an Ethereum themed hackathon which means only projects utilising the Ethereum blockchain are expected to be submitted in the hackathon. Eligibility for bounties on offer will be determined by incorporation of sponsor APIs/platform in your hackathon project.

Everyone is welcome to participate, be it students, professionals or turing-test certified androids. Participation is based on interest in Ethereum and ability to BUIDL - whether that’s writing software, designing beautiful UX, product management, or something else entirely.

Yes! We encourage hackers of all experience levels to apply. We'll have blockchain and Ethereum 101 sessions along with dedicated mentorship sessions for beginners.

Yes, you can submit projects in teams of 2-5 people. Most teams aim to have a mix of people with both design and developer skills.

We invite applications from individuals as well. Since the hackathon is strictly a team competition, after being accepted to participate in the hackathon, individuals will need to create/join a team with other accepted hackers with a minimum of 2 members. We’ll have team formation and ideation events geared towards helping you find people to work with during the hackathon. You can also join our Telegram Group to find potential teammates.

The applications will close on August 23rd at 11:59 pm (IST).

We’re looking for people who "do"! Folks who are passionate enough to work on crazy world-changing ideas. Tell us what makes you apply to the Dapp Jedi hackathon, what excites you, accomplishments you are proud of and whatever else you think can strengthen your chances of acceptance. We’ll get to know more about your abilities from the past projects, GitHub profile, participation/awards in other hackathons.

Yes! The question asking about an idea that can be built using Ethereum is an evaluation metric and unrelated to the final project you end up building.

You are free to build on any idea you wish to on Ethereum once accepted, even if it is different from the idea you have mentioned in your application.

Zero. Zip. Zilch. Nada. Nothing. Participation in the hackathon is completely free.
