HackOnLisk was announced during Lisk.js 2021. Participants in the hackathon engaged in different and interesting activities, such as developing a blockchain app with the most recent SDK of the ecosystem using JavaScript. Invezz summarizes the unique event, the awards ceremony, the submissions, the winners, and details surrounding the next edition.

Timeline and Requirements

Participants had to provide the name and a short description of the project in the submission’s readme file, a link to a GitHub repository and other deployment files and testing instructions, a user interface for the blockchain application, and a short video demonstrating the submission. After the submission deadline for the blockchain applications passed (July 9), the panel of judges selected the winners of the hackathon. Then, they were announced live on YouTube.

Because Lisk is still in its early stages of development as a blockchain application, event organizers came up with eight categories based on their growth capacity. The HackOnLisk Awards were broadcasted live on July 23. Viewers were provided with an overview of the format and judging criteria and also watched the winners’ demo videos. Among the celebrity judges who participated live were Sead Ahmetović, CEO and Co-Founder of WeAreDevelopers, and Sven Wagenknecht from BTC-Echo.

There were two types of prizes: main and bonus ones. Judges awarded a total of $33,000 worth of prizes paid in LSK tokens and some non-cash prizes. There were three main prizes: for 1st place, 2nd place, and 3rd place. Bonus prizes consisted of two partner prizes, given away by BTC-ECHO and WeAreDevelopers, and Lisk Community Choice Award, which was voted on publicly on YouTube.

Submissions

The most common submissions were non fungible tokens (NFTs):  PixeLisk, NFTKeys, Chill Marketplace, Slik, and SmartSneaks.Lisk. Two collectibles projects were submitted: Lisk Cards and LiskCollectible. There was one stablecoin project (MUSD), one platform for tokenization-as-a-service (Mynt), one casino project (Lisk Casino), a research hub (Journals), and MesoNet and Lisk RBAC (Media Monetisation Network and standalone-module Lisk module respectively).

Main Prizes

Tom Endro, the creator of Journals research hub, won first place, followed by Adrian Hupka and his Lisk RBAC. Mynt by Frank Jia took the bronze. The prizes were $10,000 for first place, $8,000 for second, and $5,000 for third.
