RSK Hackathon: Building the Future on Bitcoin

April 15 - May 14, 2021

Make sure to join the RSK Developers Slack for support!

What is RSK?

RSK blockchain is the most secure smart contract platform in the world, secured by Bitcoin's unparalleled hash power via merge-mining that adds value and functionality to the bitcoin ecosystem by enabling smart-contracts, near instant payments, and higher-scalability.

The network scales to up to 100 transactions per second without sacrificing decentralization, and reduces storage and bandwidth using probabilistic verification, fraud detection, and more.

RSK Infrastructure Framework (RIF) is is a suite of open and decentralized infrastructure protocols that enable faster, easier and scalable development of distributed applications (dApps) within a unified environment to enable mass adoption of Bitcoin and RSK.

Hackathon Theme

Bitcoin set the foundation to create the financial system of the future. RSK extended Bitcoin capabilities by making it fully programmable through smart contracts and provided greater scalability. Built on top of RSK, RIF aims to create the building blocks to construct a fully decentralized internet.

RIF, built on RSK, aims to add the identity, storage, communications, marketplaces, micro-payments, and gateways layers to allow the creation of Decentralized Sharing Economies to protect the rights of the individual and users.

The future of finance and the Internet is decentralized and Bitcoin is the most secure and adopted blockchain ecosystem to bring them to life.

Join us at this hackathon to help us develop the next generation of Bitcoin solutions to create a new financial system more fair and inclusive, and a new economy where collaborative marketplaces flourish enabling individuals to interact on a peer-to-peer basis coordinated by immutable smart contracts.

Gitcoin Integration

We are excited to announce that Gitcoin has been fully integrated with RSK! Anyone can now post bounties and grants in RBTC, DOC, and RDOC. We will soon be adding support for additional tokens RIF, SOV, and possibly more in the future! Use the Nifty wallet to interact with Gitcoin using RSK.
