DIF Hackathon Pre-Registration Now Open!

We are proud to announce our first Decentralized Identity Foundation Hackathon with $19,000 in prizes! We’re excited to welcome new and existing members of the DID community to this event and we can’t wait to see the amazing projects from our participants.

The hackathon will feature a main DIF prize pool for use cases that utilize DIF work items such as Decentralized Web Nodes, DIDComm, Presentation Exchange, DID Lint, BBS Signature Scheme and the Universal Resolver.

We are looking for use cases that drive adoption and stimulate activity within DIF’s working groups. As some existing companies began their journey from hackathons and soon received funding to bring their solutions to market, we encourage teams to think in this direction as well.

To register head over to https://difhackathon.devpost.com/. Here you can review rules, challenges, prize pools, and resources. You can also join our hackathon community on Discord.

Official hacking begins on October 26th and we have a series of sessions set up than you can join:

Hackathon Opening Session Thursday Oct 26th at 9am PT

An introduction to decentralized identity with Brian Richter of Aviary Tech Friday Oct 27th at 9am PT
