We’re excited to join the Chainlink Fall 2022 Hackathon as an official sponsor. From Oct 14 to Nov 18, Chainlink will run their biannual virtual event packed with webinars, workshops, and code-alongs where builders of all levels can learn how to use popular blockchain frameworks, create dApps, and use on-chain oracles.

They can also submit their original solutions solo or in teams to compete for prize pools of a combined 300k.

💰Truflation Prize

Truflation is offering a 10k prize pool for any team that qualifies for Chainlink Hackathon and uses our data or helps our infrastructure.

The top 3 top will win 5k, 3k and 2k accordingly, judged by our founder Stefan Rust on the originality, quality, functionality, and rationale behind using the data.

All participants of the Chainlink Hackathon should also check the requirements from the Chainlink organizers.

The winners will be announced on Friday, Dec 2, at the Chainlink Fall Hackathon closing ceremony.

"No matter your experience level, the Chainlink Fall 2022 Hackathon has the resources and mentorship you need to take your development journey to the next level." – Chainlink.

🏆Truflation's previous winners include:

  • Inflotto – a Truflation lottery raffle
  • Plation – a Truflation based prediction market
  • i-bonds – inflation-linked bonds

Chainlink Hackathons are the biggest Web3 event of its kind, with ~10k participants joining the last Chainlink Spring 2022 Hackathon and building 400 different projects.

Participants of all experience levels are welcome!

The registrations remain open throughout the event.

To qualify for rewards check Chainlink requirements and submit your solutions ahead of the deadline. You can participate in multiple projects and submit to many different tracks, but Patrick Collins suggests you focus on one project and make it great.

For those who only want to learn, you can join all the free workshops and learn the basics of blockchain development at your own paste, no experience required.
