Gitcoin Virtual Hackathon

Reserve Protocol Launch Hackathon

Oct 25, 2022 - Dec 13, 2022


πŸ—“ October 25 – December 6, 2022

Reserve’s mission is to help people around the world fight inflation, and we do this by building tools for people to create and use stable currencies globally. Alongside the official launch of our protocol, we are thrilled to partner with Gitcoin to bring you our exclusive 6-week Reserve Protocol Launch Hackathon. We invite all defi developers, engineers, creatives and enthusiasts to join us to learn how to use our platform, create stable currencies, and push the boundaries of financial innovation.


Our long term vision is a world in which the world reserve currency is not pegged to any one fiat currency, but is instead stable, decentralized, and inflation-resistant. This hackathon will be the first step in that journey.

Our protocol will enable anyone to create a new fully collateralized, insured, and yield bearing stablecoin backed by a basket of yield generating assets. While we do not know what the optimal basket for an asset backed currency looks like, we see permissionless competition leading to the best outcomes. Come participate, build on our platform, and shape the future of asset backed currencies.
