Fantom Hackathon Q2 2023 - $300K in Prizes and 64 Unique Submissions!

Congratulations to all the Fantom Hackathon participants and prize winners! The Covalent team had the opportunity to evaluate 64 awesome submissions covering some wicked new use cases in Web3, including:

  • Generative art and text integrations

  • New ERC token standards

  • Real-world tools operated by smart contracts

  • And more!

Covalent offered $6K in Covalent API credits to teams building with the Covalent API and chose three epic winners to receive prize amounts of $3K (first place), $2K (second place), and $1K (third place), respectively.

We were thrilled to have Covalent join us as a sponsor alongside AWS for the Fantom hackathon, which opened the door to some truly groundbreaking applications. The Covalent API was a key resource used by prize-winning projects like AA3 and StoryChain to easily access contract events, historical transactions and NFT metadata on Fantom. This hackathon not only showcased the capabilities of our network but also put a spotlight on what can be achieved at the intersection of blockchain and even generative AI technologies.
