Welcome to the Theta Network Q1 2022 Hackathon!

Build your submission to expand the use cases, functionality, and usability of the Theta protocol. Example projects to include:

  • Video platform integrations with the Theta blockchain
  • Smart contract-based Dapps and new tokens built using the TNT-20 token standard 
  • NFTs and web- and mobile-based integrations of ThetaPass NFT virtual ticketing
  • Gaming and Metaverse applications that incorporate Theta Video API and/or NFTs
  • DeFi protocols incorporating ThetaSwap and the growing Theta DeFi ecosystem

This list is not meant to be all-inclusive - we encourage projects outside of the example provided as long as they add to the Theta ecosystem! To learn more about what can potentially be built on Theta, please visit the Theta Documentation Site, and click here for more Hackthon resources.
