The NFT Vision Hackathon: Shaping the Future of the NFT Space
Nifty Labs Gibraltar, Indorse, and Coinsilium are thrilled to announce the NFT Vision Hack. The global online hackathon will take place between 3 July and 30 August. NFT Vision Hack brings together talented blockchain developers, artists, game developers, and NFT creators, to build innovative solutions around NFTs and ultimately push the boundaries of what’s possible in the world of non-fungible tokens (NFTs). Each participant will receive all the necessary support to bring their projects to life, while they compete for prizes and grants across the 4 tracks.
The online hackathon has an incredible lineup of sponsors and partners including Rarible, IPFS, Filecoin, Circle, USDC, and HM Government of Gibraltar amongst others. Participants will get to learn from established members of the NFT community and showcase their skills in front of them. The winning projects will get the opportunity to work, partner, and secure grant programs with the event’s sponsors. NFT Vision Hack is a fantastic platform for participants to propel their careers. There will also be a series of workshops from the different sponsors to provide context and knowledge specific to each challenge.
Gaurang Torvekar, CEO and Co-Founder of Indorse said, “Sponsors and partners will directly interact with hundreds of blockchain developers and artists, feature in webinars and workshops, benefit from technology adoption and get in touch with an open pool of innovative NFT ideas and POCs.”
One of the sponsors, Rarible added “Rarible Protocol has been incubating for 8 months and is now ready for the spotlight. The protocol by Rarible.com will play a critical role in the emerging NFT stack, by becoming the “liquidity layer” for NFTs. We are proud to be sponsoring NFT Vision Hack on this early leg of our journey.”
Circle, another main sponsor for the event, declared that: “The explosion of NFTs is a valuable trend for marketplaces and creators, and we’re excited that USDC is helping power tokenization on the blockchain. We’re also proud to sponsor NFT Vision Hack because we know it’ll help generate ideas that will fuel adoption of NFTs, the creator economy, and broader crypto commerce.”
The 4 tracks of the hackathons are the following:
- Filecoin & IPFS x Gaming & NFTs
- Circle x NFT Payment Solutions
- Rarible x Build on the Rarible Protocol
- Indorse x Scalable NFT Art Projects
The objective of the hackathon is to encourage the NFT community members to use their vision, technical skills, talent, and resources to build innovative solutions and projects around NFTs. By offering a platform to connect NFT teams, talents, investors and protocols from around the world, NFT Vision Hack is leveraging crowdsourced innovation for the benefit of the future of NFTs.
While hackathons tend to be exclusively for software engineers or individuals with coding skills, NFT Vision Hack is welcoming a broader scope of participants. Non-fungible tokens creators/artists, graphic designers, or entrepreneurs will have the opportunity to present their best NFT projects to a global audience.
The organisers, Indorse, Nifty Labs Gibraltar and Coinsilium invite all interested parties to join the online hackathon and push the NFT community towards new horizons and possibilities. It’s all about NFTs. It’s open to all talents, wherever they are.
