The DN22 Hybrid Polkadot Hackathon will kick off on Monday, August 8, and will run for 3 weeks with a series of online mentorship sessions and workshops.

DN22 Hackathon Challenges


Build a dApp for non-tech users to create and deploy NFT in PSP34 standard, a Polkadot-native standard for WASM-based NFTs.


Up to $3000


Build a dApp using an indexer to check the activities of given EVM addresses. Categorize the activities and build useful scoring systems using the activity data.


Up to $4000


Create a scoring system showing how active a Substrate-native address is. Create a dashboard showing the activity level of a Substrate-native address. And if it achieves a certain threshold, users can claim an RMRK-standard NFT, which can dynamically evolve as users’ activity levels increase.


Up to $5000


Astar Network aims to become the asset hub on Polkadot with a vibrant DeFi ecosystem. And it’s very important for our users, data analysts, traders, and projects, to have an overview of the Astar DeFi protocols to optimize their strategies, and manage their assets in multiple wallets.

  • Build an asset management dashboard
  • Build a liquidity dashboard (optional)


Up to $6,000


Build a bridge contract on the WASM contract environment and EVM on the Shibuya test network that can transfer ERC20 (and PSP22) between two different account schemes (SS58 and H160) alongside a simple web-based wallet to manage and transfer from one token to another.


Up to $10,000


Actors – The claimer is the holder of the event ticket, the attester creates the event ticket, and the verifier checks the ticket is valid. The attester and the verifier can be the same entity.

  • Build a dApp that can issue and verify event tickets.
  • Build a mobile wallet that can receive, sign and present credentials. 

Possible demo – The dApp should be able to create tickets that can be verified at the event check-in with the mobile wallet.  


Up to 10,000 KILT Coins
