Bringing Decentralized Markets to the Masses
Get started building by signing up for the hackathon here.
We are excited to announce an upcoming hackathon we are hosting with CoinList! The online hackathon will run from January 10th through February 7th, 2019 and focus on improving the user experience in areas relating to non-fungible tokens (NFTs), compliance, and decentralized finance. The purpose of the hackathon is to give anyone in the world the opportunity to learn about the emerging crypto financial stack, collaborate with other builders, and create well-designed projects that bring decentralized markets to the masses.
We strongly believe in the potential for decentralized markets to establish a more open, global financial system. However, usability is still a barrier to widespread adoption. We’re looking forward to sponsoring this hackathon with CoinList to see participants address the UI/UX issues associated with creating products that utilize decentralized protocols like 0x. If you need some inspiration, check out this list of 22 project ideas. We would also love to see participants continue developing their projects after the hackathon has concluded, as we are always looking to fund promising teams through our Ecosystem Acceleration Program.

The only other submission requirement will be for teams to incorporate 0x into their project. In the Decentralized Finance category specifically, we encourage teams to use 0x plus one other crypto protocol from the DeFi stack. By leveraging various crypto primitives and standards, teams should be able to experiment to create entirely new markets. We hope to see participants creatively ...
