Welcome to the Theta Network Q1 2021 Hackathon!

Build your submission to expand the use cases, functionality, and usability of the Theta protocol. Example projects to include:

  • Video platform integrations with the Theta blockchain
  • Smart contract-based Dapps, new tokens, and NFTs built on Theta blockchain (NFT functionality projected to go live February 2021)
  • Analytical and monitoring tools for Theta blockchain transactions, nodes, and block production
  • Community-run block explorers, wallets, and Guardian Node staking tools
  • Extensions of Theta products like the Theta Edge Node, such as databases or platforms cataloguing user-produced video streams 

This list is not meant to be all-inclusive - we encourage projects outside of the example provided as long as they add to the Theta ecosystem! To learn more about what can potentially be built on Theta, please visit the Theta Documentation Site, and click here for more Hackthon resources.
