The next Chainlink Virtual Hackathon kicks off March 15! Sign up today to compete for $125k+ in prizes.
The ETHGlobal 2021 MarketMake Hackathon was an impressive outing for smart contract developers to embrace the innovative fervor in DeFi and build advanced new dApps with Chainlink oracles. We continue to see explosive growth in the smart contract ecosystem, as developers both build traditional financial instruments on decentralized infrastructure and unlock completely new DeFi primitives and markets. Chainlink’s widely adopted oracle network is helping dApp developers securely access a full range of off-chain data resources, ensuring that as smart contracts continue to lock in more value, they can depend on hyper-reliable external inputs and computations.
We are pleased to award a total of $5,000 in prizes, with $1,000 to each winning project that used Chainlink oracles to showcase a unique externally connected smart contract application. These prizes encouraged developers to explore creative approaches to DeFi applications while using the Chainlink Network’s secure and reliable data infrastructure to connect their smart contracts to a vast array of off-chain data, API services, and computation.
Thank you to all participants, sponsors, and judges at ETHGlobal’s MarketMake 2021 for creating an environment for developers to level up their smart contract skills and #BuildwithChainlink.

Audits R Dead: Streamlined DeFi Insurance
Audits R Dead is an Ethereum-based insurance protocol submitted by Evert Kors and Jack Sanford that provides insurance coverage for smart contract exploits or hacks by incentivizing security analysts to research and score insurance risk for DeFi protocols. Analysts are compensated through protocol fees and the yield of the insurance pool. Their detailed assessments of protocol risk inform insurance premiums, coverage policies, and risk/reward tradeoffs for stakers.
Additionally, Audits R Dead allows policyholders and insurers ...
