The Details

Solana is an ultra-fast, low-cost, low-latency layer 1 blockchain. The network allows developers to combine the secure and self-sovereign properties of blockchains with a front-end experience indistinguishable from the modern web.

Solana and its community place a high priority on cross-chain interoperability to grow all decentralized economies and elevate the existing applications currently built on other chains like Ethereum.

Since this is a collaborative effort, we're excited to announce the Solana Wormhole hackathon including speakers and judges who have built some of the top DeFi platforms on Ethereum.


Why participate?

Solana is the world's first web-scale blockchain, enabling scalability without compromises. Wormhole, and other cross-chain bridges built for Solana, will open an entirely new design space for blockchain applications.

We will show your hackathon project to our entire ecosystem of community members, partner companies, and industry leading judges.

Winners will have access to our partner network, which could be a turning point for your project or startup.

What will I build?

While the Solana Foundation encourages participants to build with Wormhole, hackers can build any application or tool they believe will have an impact on the ecosystem.

The only requirement is that teams must incorporate Solana into their project in some way.

Take a look at our list of ideas for inspiration.
