Prizes

$1,285,000 in prizes

Starport Prize: Starport- Code Scaffolding (2)

1st Place - Equivalent of $35,000 USD paid in ATOMs
Runner Up - Equivalent of $15,000 USD paid in ATOMs

**Go to https://cosmos-hackatom-vi.devpost.com/details/challenges for full description of this challenge sponsored by Starport. **

One of the core features of Starport is code scaffolding. Starport can scaffold a new blockchain from scratch, create new modules, add messages, queries, packets to modules, and much more. This functionality allows developers to prototype advanced modules with just a few commands. Currently, Starport depends on string placeholders being present in modules’ files. Placeholders work, but if another solution (likely, based on code analysis) is found, this could improve Starport's reliability even further.

Starport Prize: Starport - Local Testnet (2)

1st Place - Equivalent of $35,000 USD paid in ATOMs
Runner Up - Equivalent of $15,000 USD paid in ATOMs

**Go to https://cosmos-hackatom-vi.devpost.com/details/challenges for full description of this challenge sponsored by Starport.**

Starport chain serve is the most convenient way to start a blockchain node for development purposes. Currently, this command sets up a single node testnet with automatic code reloading. Enhance this functionality of Starport, for example, to support multi-node local testnets.

Starport Prize: Starport - Build Process and Configuration (2)

1st Place - Equivalent of $35,000 USD paid in ATOMs
Runner Up - Equivalent of $15,000 USD paid in ATOMs

**Go to https://cosmos-hackatom-vi.devpost.com/details/challenges for full description of this challenge sponsored by Starport.**

Starport uses an advanced build process to compile the source code of a chain into a binary. It’s both sophisticated and easy to use, but there is always room for improvement. To win this challenge, enhance the build process so that it’s more flexible, yet can be used even by beginner developers.

Starport Prize: Starport- A Plugin System (2)

1st Place - Equivalent of $35,000 USD paid in ATOMs
Runner Up - Equivalent of $15,000 USD paid in ATOMs

**Go to https://cosmos-hackatom-vi.devpost.com/details/challenges for full description of this challenge sponsored by Starport.**

Runner Up - Equivalent of $15,000 USD paid in ATOMs

**Go to https://cosmos-hackatom-vi.devpost.com/details/challenges for full description of this challenge sponsored by Evmos.**

Evmos is an application-agnostic chain that will be interoperable with the Ethereum mainnet, EVM-compatible environments, and other BFT chains via IBC, making it easy for users and developers to interact seamlessly between chains. Evmos aims to be the EVM Hub of Cosmos, making it easy for smart contracts to deploy and communicate within the Cosmos ecosystem.

Interstellar Prize: Challenge Akash (2)

1st Place - Equivalent of $35,000 USD paid in ATOMs
Runner Up - Equivalent of $15,000 USD paid in ATOMs

**Go to https://cosmos-hackatom-vi.devpost.com/details/challenges for full description of this challenge sponsored by Akash.**

Censorship-resistant, permissionless, and self-sovereign, Akash Network is the world's first open source cloud. One of the biggest values that Akash can provide to other blockchains is the ability to run hard-to-deplatform durable blockchain nodes. Removing blockchains' dependence on centralized hosting providers is one of the biggest steps blockchains can take toward further decentralization. To this end, the Akash community and core developer team have put together the following GitHub repo: https://github.com/ovrclk/cosmos-omnibus.

This repo contains the deployment scripts and references to working images to deploy nodes on a number of different Cosmos chains in a matter of seconds. Akash's HackAtom VI challenge asks participants to develop the container images, SDL files, and readme.dm documentation needed to run chain nodes from Cosmos chains that are not currently in the repository. Deliverables will be in the form of a PR to the https://github.com/ovrclk/cosmos-omnibus repo.

Interstellar Prize: Challenge Sentinel (2)

1st Place - Equivalent of $35,000 USD paid in ATOMs
Runner Up - Equivalent of $15,000 USD paid in ATOMs

**Go to https://cosmos-hackatom-vi.devpost.com/details/challenges for full description of this challenge sponsored by Sentinel.**

Sentinel is a network of independent dVPN applications, not just a single consumer-facing dVPN. Sentinel's IBC challenge is a tough one to tackle but could help to solve an important problem in the wider Cosmos ecosystem. Participants must build a fast, reliable, and unbiased randomness generator which could ideally be used for validator selection.

A randomness generator will be very useful for many other applications, from consumer-level apps to DeFi protocols, and Sentinel believes that the Cosmos Hub would benefit heavily if it could provide on-demand randomness through IBC.

Interstellar Prize: Challenge Sifchain (2)

1st Place - Equivalent of $35,000 USD paid in ATOMs
Runner Up - Equivalent of $15,000 USD paid in ATOMs

**CGo to https://cosmos-hackatom-vi.devpost.com/details/challenges for full description of this challenge sponsored by Sifchain**

Sifchain’s goal is to become the leading omni-chain DEX, with flexible trading capabilities across dozens of the top blockchains. When a new Cosmos project is launched it takes time for the project to build an audience and encourage use. Projects building on the Cosmos SDK would benefit greatly from automatic chain and token listings. Automatic advertisement and listing of new tokens and chains allow new projects to list on DEXs without requiring project engage one-on-one.

When a new token is launched, developers may register their token with a token-listing-discovery endpoint. A DEX like Sifchain would consume the listing, where each token listing provides sufficient knowledge to implement the IBC interface and list the token automatically. Write a full stack backend which lists tokens using Golang and Swagger.

Alongside the Tendermint high-performance Byzantine fault-tolerant (BFT) consensus engine, one of the main innovations of the Cosmos Network is the robust and secure Inter-Blockchain Communication protocol (IBC), the Cosmos standard for interoperability. This protocol enables communication and digital asset transfers across an ever-expanding network of interconnected blockchains.

Developers will need to create new, innovative ways to highlight the possibilities of blockchain interoperability using the IBC protocol such as viable implementations, use cases, data formats or others.

Interstellar Prize: Challenge Pylons (2)

1st Place - Equivalent of $35,000 USD paid in ATOMs
Runner Up - Equivalent of $15,000 USD paid in ATOMs

**Go to https://cosmos-hackatom-vi.devpost.com/details/challenges for full description of this challenge sponsored by Pylons.**

OBuilt on Cosmos, Pylons is a fast and interoperable system for brands and creators to build engaging products and with meaningful NFT experiences. For this challenge, Pylons wants you to build new, innovative ways to highlight the possibilities of blockchain interoperability using the IBC protocol—such as viable implementation, use cases, and data formats—using the Cosmos SDK.

Be the developer that unlocks the potential of interoperability for IRL applications—on Cosmos with the Pylons SDK. Reinvent centralized ticketing systems using NFTs.

Interstellar Prize: Challenge Agoric (2)

1st Place - $35,000 USD in ATOMs

Runner Up - Equivalent of $15,000 USD paid in ATOMs

**Go to https://cosmos-hackatom-vi.devpost.com/details/challenges for full description of this challenge sponsored by LikeCoin.**

LikeCoin aims to enpower content ownership, authenticity, and provenance. Creators can register content metadata to guarantee its integrity by acquiring in International Standard Content Number (ISCN). ISCN is a tool to authenticate and track content, just like a digitial footprint. ISCN is an NFT-like content registry record running on the LikeCoin chain that allows content creators to register their content metadata on the chain through ISCN transactions.

Currently, there are three ways for creators to register their content metadata to the LikeCoin chain: 1) register via app.like.co, 2) ISCN batch uploader, 3) LikeCoin Wordpress plugin. Unlike traditional NFTs, ISCN owners might have to view, manage or edit ISCN records in batch, since talented creators can produce creative works quickly, and have a huge collection of series of ISCN.

In this challenge, LikeCoin is seeking developers who can develop a wallet interface to allow users to manage their ISCN records. Useful features will include visualization of the ISCN records and organizing them into directories or groups, interface for viewing and editing ISCN records, and sending and trading of ISCN records (change of owner).

Runner Up - Equivalent of $15,000 USD paid in ATOMs

**Go to https://cosmos-hackatom-vi.devpost.com/details/challenges for full description of this challenge sponsored by KI Foundation.**

The Ki Foundation bridges CeFi and DeFi through an innovative range of products that provide users with an easy and seamless way to engage in DeFi operations, including its flagship Ki Chain blockchain and bridges to other blockchain ecosystems. The Token transfer capability of IBC was the first step showcasing the power of interoperability between Cosmos SDK-based chains. In order to grow the value of this thriving ecosystem, we need to implement the next step of cross-chain interoperability through the Interchain Account feature.

For this challenge, developers will need to implement the module enabling cross-chain interoperability with features such as delegating, undelegating, sending coins, or operating an application-based action such as swapping on a chain like Osmosis.

The idea is to leverage IBC capabilities and be able to use application-specific features on different sovereign chains in the Cosmos ecosystem. Specifically, we would like to be able to call any custom Cosmos SDK message on any IBC-enabled chain from an interchain account.

Galaxy Prize: Challenge Osmosis (2)

1st Place - Equivalent of $35,000 USD paid in ATOMs

Runner Up - Equivalent of $15,000 USD paid in ATOMs

**Go to https://cosmos-hackatom-vi.devpost.com/details/challenges for full description of this challenge sponsored by Pylons.**

Blockchain has the potential to completely restructure the gaming industry. Blockchain gaming uses true item ownership from the same technology that lies at the core of cryptocurrencies. Be the game developer that unlocks the potential of gaming with Cosmos. Build the future of gaming with the Cosmos SDK. Builders will explore ideas using the Cosmos tech like creating a game with meaningful gameplay behavior mediated through state changes, a decentralized virtual world or others.

Build a game with meaningful gameplay behavior mediated through state changes using the Cosmos SDK blockchain framework, or build a decentralized virtual world with Cosmos network -- utilizing the Cosmos SDK + Pylons SDK.

Starship Prize: Challenge Secret Network (2)

1st Place - Equivalent of $35,000 USD paid in ATOMs
Runner Up - Equivalent of $15,000 USD paid in ATOMs

**Go to https://cosmos-hackatom-vi.devpost.com/details/challenges for full description of this challenge sponsored by Secret Network.**

Secret Network is an open-source protocol that performs computations on encrypted data, brining privacy to smart contracts and public blockchains. Secret's challenge is to build a game on Secret Network using CosmWasm, Secret NFTs, and on-chain randomness.

Blockchain NFT gaming is taking off, even though main components of gaming are non-existent with traditional blockchains, namely private data and randomness. To create Games of Incomplete Information, private data must be utilized, and to create fair games, randomness must be utilized. Randomness can also be utilized to generate unpredictable mazes, puzzles and maps, to roll dice, to shuffle cards and cubes, to create gaming AIs, and to add "chaos" in order to enhance in-game experiences.

Traditional blockchains like Ethereum don’t have data privacy or on-chain randomness, therefore gaming creators resort to centralized solutions. This makes for less fair and transparent games, and also leads to non-ideal UX at times (getting randomness from off-chain sources takes time).

On Secret Network, all contract’s data is private by default. Only the contract can read its own state, and only the transaction sender can read the transaction inputs and outputs. By utilizing private state, contracts can store a private entropy pool and from it derive private random numbers instantly and at will.

The participants to this challenge will need to build a game on Secret Network using CosmWasm, Secret NFTs and on-chain randomness

Earth Prize: Challenge Regen Network (2)

1st Place - Equivalent of $35,000 USD paid in ATOMs
Runner Up - Equivalent of $15,000 USD paid in ATOMs

**Go to https://cosmos-hackatom-vi.devpost.com/details/challenges for full description of this challenge sponsored by Regen Network.**

Regen Network is a platform for a thriving planet, that aligns economics with ecology to drive regenerative land management. Regen Network is soon approaching its first mainnet upgrade, which will include the launch of the first module for representing carbon credits (“ecocredits” on Regen Network) as on-chain assets on a Cosmos SDK-based blockchain.

Regen Network's challenge for HackAtom VI under the EARTH category is to bridge ecocredits into the interchain ecosystem—by implementing an IBC application that allows users to move these new types of ecological assets across different blockchains.

Ecocredits are more feature rich than other familiar standards such as ERC-20 tokens, and allow for additional ecologically pertinent metadata, as well as the ability for a holder to “retire” these credits—thus claiming the credit as an “offset” in carbon accounting terms. As such, your submission should take into account these nuances and provide for cross-chain access to metadata, as well as cross-chain capabilities for retiring credits.

Earth Prize: Challenge Co-Sponsored by Grant.fish and Juno (2)

1st Place - Equivalent of $35,000 USD paid in ATOMs
Runner Up - Equivalent of $15,000 USD paid in ATOMs

Juno is an interoperable smart contract network that is highly scalable, robust, secure, and easy to deploy. Grant.fish is a validator operated by stake.fish that has launched with the Cosmos Hub 3 upgrade. Both believe that the ultimate purpose of the Internet of Blockchains is to empower people everywhere with digital technologies that enable communities to prosper. When communities prosper, they can regenerate the planet and respond more effectively to the climate crisis.

For this important challenge, Juno and grant.fish are teaming up to ask you to change the state of the planet by building modules, accessible apps, and integrations for local currencies, self-sovereign identity, non-fungible impact tokens, verification oracles, decentralized impact exchanges, and earth intelligence data.

Create something that can leverage the power of the Juno platform and Cosmos IBC functionality that can support carbon emission reduction initiatives. Identifying ways to tie in existing Juno functionality with regenerative-focused networks like Regen Network could be a great opportunity as well.

Earth Prize: Challenge IXO Foundation (2)

1st Place - Equivalent of $35,000 USD paid in ATOMs
Runner Up - Equivalent of $15,000 USD paid in ATOMs

**Click here for full description of this challenge sponsored by IXO Foundation.**

Humanity is on the brink of a fundamental state-transition into planetary chaos. Erratic weather patterns and natural disasters resulting from flooding, droughts and wild-fires are becoming more frequent each year, as climate-change accelerates. Mass human migrations away from disaster zones are already beginning and we see conflicts and famine. Re-emerging tropical diseases and lethal new infectious agents, such as COVID-19, threaten human and animal life. Natural resources are being depleted at an alarming rate, way beyond the planetary boundaries for sustainability, and imperial wars to control and own these resources have already begun!

What can we do to avoid mass extinctions of life-forms on Earth and to reverse the threat of losing centuries of human progress?

We must develop responses to the Earth Crisis using anti-fragile digital technologies and data about the state of the world that is verifiable and increases our intelligence. The ultimate sense-and-response system must become globally distributed and enable intelligent, rapid, effective local coordination, with incentives for people to take action, and to get sufficient resources to flow where these are most needed.

The ixo-Cosmos Internet of Impact Hub and connected sovereign Impact Zone networks can provide the blockchain infrastructure needed to respond to the Earth Crisis. ixo describes the Internet of Impact as a global digital immune system for humanity.

Your challenge is to build and demonstrate applications using the Internet of Impact, or software components that add capabilities to The Impact Stack, for preventing and responding to specific types of real-world Earth Crisis events.
You will collaborate with Problem-owners who have place-based or domain-specific knowledge and expertise about use cases that may range from making earth state observations for early-warning systems, to financing earth state-changes, to enable local citizen action, and to create global change.

This is an enormous, urgent opportunity space of the highest priority, in which to apply your skills, connect and interoperate with existing systems, integrate the latest AI technologies, and build better alternative decentralized financing and data verification mechanisms.

Earth Prize: Challenge IXO Foundation - The Earth Tokens Challenge (2)

1st Place - Equivalent of $35,000 USD paid in ATOMs
Runner Up - Equivalent of $15,000 USD paid in ATOMs

**Go to https://cosmos-hackatom-vi.devpost.com/details/challenges for full description of this challenge sponsored by IXO Foundation.**

For this challenge “Earth Tokens” are defined as classes of tokens that are created and used for the purpose of sustainable socio-economic development, climate action, and ecological regeneration.

Tokenization is transforming how people are incentivised, how decentralised economies and communities are secured and governed, how capital gets formed and allocated, how products and services are financed, and how digital or physical assets are used for financial or non-financial applications.

Across this wide range of applications there are many different classes of tokens.

Each token class has a unique set of token properties and token behaviours.

The Interchain Identifier (IID) Specification describes how to configure various classes of tokens, using token templates and standards that are designed to be interoperable across all blockchain networks, and addressable from the web.
