Hi there Hackers, and welcome to the Clarity Smart Contract Hackathon!
Head on over to the “Prizes” page to start work and begin your participation!
The Clarity smart contracting language has been in the works for years at Blockstack, and we’re really excited about the powerful features it will enable for your decentralized applications. With this hackathon, participants should focus on developing fully-functional smart contracts that demonstrate the key features of Clarity.
If you are just starting out your blockchain dev journey, you may want to shoot for a Level 0 prize. These will be basic smart contracts that show you really got to tinkerin’. However if you’re already an experienced hacker, shoot for the moon (Level 2 prize) and try to build out a robust, comprehensive, expansive smart contract that uses all Clarity has to offer.
Clarity contracts run on top of a blockchain, anyone can query them, and anyone can submit transactions to execute them. It unlocks endless use cases like access control (logging in), non-fungible (collectables) and fungible (stablecoins) tokens, business model templates (subscriptions), and even decentralized autonomous organizations (DAOs).
>To connect with other hackers, and get support from the Blockstack team, we encourage everyone to pop over to the Discord. We have a dedicated Hackathons channel for all discussion around the event: http://discord.gg/unFGwwu
>Your one-stop-shop for all stuff Clarity is gonna be the Official Clarity Hackathon site. On there is a fantastic resources page with everything from technical documentation to killer community tools: https://community.blockstack.org/clarity-resources
Design - Is the smart contract well-structured, and broken into logical functions?
Functionality - How powerful or robust is the functionality the smart contract provides?
Use of Clarity Reference - How many different Clarity functions, keywords, or design principles are used?
Originality/Creativity - How unique or innovative is the mechanism smart contract? Has it been implemented before?
Real World Viability - How applicable is the smart contract to use in real world situations?
Documentation/Commenting - Does the project come accompanied by a comprehensive documentation or README? Is the code commented thoroughly so anyone could read through and discern its functionality?
Good Will rule: it will be at the discretion of PBC if folks game the system by trying to make slight changes to an existing smart contract for the reward. Payments will be sent in BTC.
