Pocket Network is proud to announce that for the second year in a row, we will be sponsoring the ETHOnline Hackathon, ETHGlobal’s biggest event of the year. Last year we maxed out our $5,000 prize pool, and we are proud to not only up that prize pool to $8,000 for this year but also have a network with over 5000 nodes - ready to handle whatever requests you throw at it!There'll also be a surprise bonus that you'll have to have to stick around for to find out!
Suffering from success should be the last thing on the mind for any project, which is why we're giving up to two load-balanced RPC endpoints with a capacity of 1M requests per day per endpoint for each team. You're able to choose from any of our networks with mainnets, testnets, and archival versions supported.
Feel free to mix and match as you please!
Due to the Pocket Network being a blockchain-agnostic RPC infrastructure protocol, most teams will be qualified to win a prize - whether that's our 4k Prize Pool or 4K in named prizes. Every dapp needs blockchain data!
4K Prize PoolFor our prize pool, the only criteria are that your team must use a pocket-powered endpoint in your service, or protocol for any blockchain supported by Pocket Network. This prize pool will be evenly split, meaning if 100 teams qualify for this pool, each team would receive 40 DAI.4K Named PrizesFor our named prizes, there are two "paths" of 2000 DAI each with only three winners.Best Hack to add a Pocket-powered RPC endpoint for any blockchain supported
