### Gitcoin Skynet Hackathon
### Prize Bounty
**Grand Prize 1,000,000 SC!!** (est $2,700)
There will also be three runner-up **250,000 SC** prizes.
On top of all that, all entrants who produce a substantially interesting Skynet application or upgrade will win a consolation prize of **25,000 SC**.
### Challenge Description
Build an application which focuses on enhancing Skynet as its fundamental purpose. This application should add a useful feature or functionality to the Skynet ecosystem, making it easy or possible to do something that was previously not easy or possible to do.
Taking an existing open source Skynet application and extending it to support new functionality or otherwise significantly improving the user experience is welcome and encouraged.
### Submission Requirements
- The project must be open source
- Skynet must be a fundamental element of the application.
- The app must do something that is useful and interesting.
- The app will score better if it has greater appeal to a wider audience
- Demo videos are strongly recommended for complete submissions
How involved or difficult the application is will not be considered. If a very useful and interesting app can be created with very little effort, this app will still qualify for the grand prize and all other prizes.
