Hack the Neon Challenge: BUIDL dApps with Potential

This year, Neon EVM challenges participants to push the boundaries of what is possible with blockchain technology. Participants are invited to create any type of dApps to showcase the best use of Neon EVM leveraging one or more of our standout features:

  • Decentralized Finance (DeFi) dApps: Build or port Ethereum-native DeFi dApps, tools, platforms, or infrastructure onto Neon EVM. Adapt traditional DeFi primitives into Neon-native dApps, infusing them with unique features that set them apart. Challenge the DeFi ecosystem with innovative solutions in lending, borrowing, staking, yields, payments, etc.

  • Web2 integrations to blockchain: Unleash your innovative prowess by moving an existing web2 use-case or popular solution (social media, aggregators, e-commerce, supply chain, or any other) and bring it on-chain to improve utility and value-add.

  • Design gaming apps: Design blockchain-based games or gaming platforms and launch on Neon EVM.

  • NFT challenge: Get creative and build dApps to appeal to the degen web3 native audience – collections, games, jpegs, marketplaces, music – just think outside the box.

We challenge you to create dApps that redefine the status quo and pave the way for a decentralized future. And yes, with a total prize pool of $5,000, the winners take home:

1st Place: $2,000 2nd Place: $1,000 3rd Place: $500

An additional $1,500 is up for grabs for any team deploying a working dApp on Neon EVM's devnet or mainnet. These prizes are more than just monetary rewards; they celebrate those who believe in the power of creativity, ingenuity, and the transformative potential of blockchain technology.
