2021 is at its final days, and we are so excited to end it with some great news!
It is time to announce the results from our first Hyperhack edition - a th-long hackathon open to everyone with aspirations in the blockchain space.
A big thank you to everyone who joined our community, participated in the hackathon, attended the office hours, and submitted top-notch entries!
Hyperhack in a nutshell
- 1000+ participants joined the hackathon
- 13+ community events organized together with our team
- 21 submissions made it to the finals
- 9 winners selected for some awesome awards
Hyperhack was different from your typical dev-focused hackathon. We designed this hackathon to cater to professionals from all avenues such as product managers, architects, and designers to learn about their perspective.
All participants in Hyperhack were introduced to our product Hyperverse, an open, decentralized, blockchain-agnostic marketplace for composable smart contracts.
The challenge allo participants to express their knowledge in any form and shape that suited their style. This included writing a blog, video, podcast, slide decks, recorded Twitter spaces, or any other form of content that fit their interests.
And the categories aimed to unleash candidates creativity and encouraged them to put their thinking hats and become:
- Thinkers - for those interested in creating content about the type of dapp they would build using the Hyperverse.
- Scholars - for everyone willing to create content about building dapps for the Hyperverse and best practices to do that.
- Tinkers - for the brave ones taking on the challenge to actually build something cool using the Hyperverse and tell us how they’ve built it.
Who are the winners of our first Hyperhack?
Check out the names of our participants who made it to the finals with a summary of their projects:
1. BZ (Ninja)
Incredible work from BZ! Learn how to create your own NFT Marketplace on the Hyperverse and how to infuse and mint these NFTs yourself. BZ also wrote excellent guides for launching an MVP on Flow, how to get started with usability testing with your own smart modules, and much more.
2. Ned Tuck (Thinker)
Ned’s project idea is an NFT marketplace that will allow college athletes to create and sell their own NFTs. The athletes would be able to etize their popularity through these digital artworks and advertise them on their social media platforms.
3. Meharab Latif (Thinker)
Learn about the Hyperverse tool and all of the initiatives Decentology is planning to do with it from Meharab’s piece which gives a nice window into what you need to know.
4. Afoma Orji (Thinker)
Afoma’s project provides a great overview of what the Hyperverse is all about. Everything from development, security, auditing, and etization is covered in her blog post.
5. Willi Blue (Scholar)
Lots of great Hyperverse material from Willi! Learn how to take your web development to the next level, how to add multiple modules, and get started building your own dapp - all on the Hyperverse.
6. Rohit Singh (Thinker)
Rohit’s project is a DAO that encourages the participation of students, community members, and business owners in the organization by providing incentives. Everyone involved in the DAO can share projects for others to see and be a part of.

Kyle’s project teaches developers how to create a Discord bot using the Flow blockchain. This bot would automate server roles making these servers feel more efficient.
8. Bruce Canedy (Thinker)
Bruce created a fantastic slide deck that presents his idea for a dapp that aims to raise ey for K-12 schools through NFT fundraising. Through this dapp school teams would be able to fund their extracurricular activities. Supporters operating on the dapp would be able to collect unique NFTs for their contributions.
