The Importance of the Not Another Virtual Hackathon for the Web3 Community

The Not Another Virtual Hackathon (NAVH) by Consensys, taking place from July 6 to September 6, 2023, is more than just a competition. It's a platform for learning, growth, and innovation that champions web3 builders from around the world.

NFTSYD is proud to be an official community partner for this event, underscoring our commitment to fostering innovation and collaboration within the web3 community, both locally and globally.

A Golden Opportunity

The NAVH is a golden opportunity for the global web3 community to innovate, collaborate, and compete for a prize pool of $115,500. The hackathon celebrates web3 developers, NFT artists, students, community builders, product specialists, and futurists, empowering them to make a meaningful impact through innovation, blockchain, and collaboration. Whether you’re a developer, a designer, an entrepreneur, or a visionary with an idea that’s ready to shake things up, this hackathon is for you.

The Prize Pool and Challenges

The hackathon features a $115,500 prize pool up for grabs across five technical challenges:

  1. To Infura and Beyond: $10,000 Prize Pool

  2. Mobile Fun with MetaMask SDK: $18,000 Prize Pool

  3. IYKYK Linea Edition: $25,000 Prize Pool

  4. OH SNAP!: $25,000 Prize Pool

  5. Make a Dapp That Slaps, No Cap: $37,500 Prize Pool

Each challenge requires participants to leverage Infura,


and Linea in unique ways to create innovative solutions.

The more integration points with Infura, the better, but trivial use cases won’t get you much, so make sure you use each service meaningfully.

A Word of Advice

As an ex-hackathon participant, I'd suggest including as many of the stacks and deployment requirements as possible to increase your chance across as many prize pools as possible. Use case-wise, anything that's backed with proper research, data, and proof that it's really needed is going to be amazing. If cross-chain zk is something that you're interested in, why not? But make sure you have the needed background data/case study that shows an understanding of the problem or if it's not already widely solved.

Let's shape the future of web3 together!
