October 21, 2021 — The Findora Foundation is excited to announce “🍂 Falling for DeFi on Findora 💟,” the first ever hackathon on the Findora blockchain. It will be hosted virtually on the Gitcoin platform over the course of five weeks, with a focus on Decentralized Finance (DeFi) and the recently-announced Ethereum Virtual Machine (EVM) compatibility on Findora’s Anvil Testnet. Interested participants can register now.

Starting on Friday, October 29 and concluding with a demo day on Thursday, December 09, teams and individual developers alike will have five weeks to build and deploy EVM compatible DApps on Findora, a low-cost, scalable layer one blockchain with programmable privacy.

Participants can choose from three different tracks:

  • Liquidity Track — Port a popular DApp and/or NFT platform using Findora EVM. Add your favorite protocol to increase yield and enhance liquidity. Combine the two with privacy using Findora SDK.
  • Tools Track — Bring your favorite existing tools, build new tools, enhance libraries, write documentation — and do it all to improve the developer experience for yourself and everyone else.
  • Cryptography Track — Design and execute tools for privacy preservation and auditing using Findora zero-knowledge proofs — Zei and Bulletproofs cryptographic libraries. Help bring more privacy to DeFi.

Full track details can be found at https://gitcoin.co/hackathon/findoradefi/.

The 🍂 Falling for DeFi on Findora 💟 Hackathon judges will be announced next week. Their criteria for judging will be based on: Execution, Creativity, Design, and Impact.

Teams behind the winning DApps built during the hackathon will be invited to apply for a Findora Developer grant to accelerate their development and growth.
