Bounty Hunters, We're Looking for You!
SuperteamVN currently has 6 open bounties some of which are co-sponsored by ecosystem partners. Check it out!
New hackathon concept called Web3 Consumer Hack
We’ve created a series of mini-hackathons with Solana ecosystem partner companies called Web3 Consumer Hacker. If you have a thriving developer community that can build on Solana and want to throw a hackathons with us, apply for a grant to work with us today here.
Prior to the hackathon, we hosted a series of workshops on the API/SDKs Candypay, Shyft, Civic, Clockwork, and Solscan (series here).
One example is our workshop with Civic
💰 Additionally, Civic is also giving a prize of up to $10,000 to the @xdc_community community for building with Civic.
From this, we generated a list of solvable ideas and projects https://www.notion.so/superteamvn/List-of-Ideas-and-SDKs-8813600971274e949740f15f84a5942f our participants could work on for a 48-hour mini hackathon, which is administered by Superteam with mentors from the ecosystem companies.
These much more narrow hackathons have allowed our devs a) get a better understanding Solana’s protocol and infrastructure by working with projects built on Solana, b) get immediate feedback from the companies in the space and c) help them build something quickly and gain confidence. Our ecosystem partners in return get new devs using their product as well as product feedback, hacking and testing. It’s a win win for everyone in the Solana ecosystem.
12 teams joined (30 total participants)
~10 new Superteam members from winning team
Winner: Nimbus Nimbus is a personalized portfolio on the ETH chain that aims to make user investment more effective. After their journey at Solana Consumer Hack 01, they were able to develop new functions that allow Solana users to do KyC with Civic, make payments with Candy Pay, and get data using Shyft. Nimbus successfully won the Championship of Solana Consumer Hack 01.
Grant winner highlight: Vietnam Creator DAO
Jason, our SuperteamVN Member, has received a $5000 grant to create a Vietnam Creator DAO (VCD). This organization finds web3 and non web3 NFT artists and helps them build communities, provides technical training and assists in them in launching successful NFT projects within the Solana ecosystem. Their goal for the next few months is to build awareness through events and help successfully launch at least 3 NFT projects on Solana.
More than 100 blockchain enthusiasts showed up and SuperteamVN was able to meet numerous NFT Artists!
