### Develop Useful Tooling For The Stacks 2.0 Ecosystem
![Clarity Hackathon Logo](https://raw.githubusercontent.com/blockstack/hackathons/master/Clarity%20Hackathon%20Logo.png)
### Prize Bounty
$3000 USD to first place submission. $1500 USD to the second place submission. $500 USD to the third place submission. All winners will receive a Blockstack swag bag. Winners will be contacted directly by Blockstack for payment.
### Challenge Description
In Phase II of the Clarity Hackathon, developers will build robust, fully-functional tooling for the Stacks 2.0 blockchain. The goal of these tools is to provide more expressive and interactive ways to participate in the Blockstack ecosystem. A tool can be an extension, plug-in, widget, feature, app, API, oracle, or even just a piece of content. If it solves a problem, makes developers lives easier, improves user experience, or teaches about Stacks 2.0 & Clarity...it's probably a tool!
An IDE extension for language support? Code-coverage validator? A basic boilerplate project generator? If it solves a frustration or alleviates a pain-point, you can submit it! Think linters, visual/interactive editors, “No-code” builders, a comprehensive documentation page or substantial tutorial, video demo...use your imagination and if you have any doubt whether something you're thinking of is a good fit, ping us in Discord.
To get started, we recommend heading to the ["Resources"](https://community.blockstack.org/clarity-resources) section of the Clarity Hackathon homepage.
Get to meet other hackers in our Discord community! We set up a dedicated [#hackathon](https://discord.gg/PFu2PCX) support thread for all your hacking queries.
### Judging Criteria
Category | Description
-- | --
Design | Is the tooling code well-structured and broken in logical segments?
Functionality | How powerful or robust is the functionality the tool 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 behind the tool? Has it been implemented before?
Real World Viability | How applicable is the tool 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?
### Submission Requirements
- The contract and tools must somehow use Blockstack's Clarity smart contracting language
- The contract and tools must be the original work of the individual participant or the participating team
