Generous Prizes: $100K for APAC ($50K quadratic funding prize pool and $50K judge’s prizes), $2.5M for global prizes and more for seed funding to help us light up a billion faces with Web3 projects that are committed to building mobile-first DeFi for the 6 billion mobile phone users around the world.

How to Submit

  1. Log in to hackerlink.io and click on ‘Grant’ — ‘Celo Mobile DeFi Hackathon’ to apply (new users please register first). Please make sure you have at least 0.003 CELO as gas fee. For gas fee support, please find hackerlink (Telegram: @hackerlinkofficial).
  2. Join the Celo Mobile DeFi Hackathon@APAC telegram group chat to get the latest information about the event. Developers without projects can also team up in the group and turn ideas into projects together! Link: https://t.me/celoapac
  3. In order to prevent fake projects from participating in the prize pool, please contact hackerlink (Telegram: @hackerlinkofficial) to verify your project after submission.
  4. During the Hackathon, we will conduct multiple rounds of project demos, so the earlier the project is submitted, the more attention it will receive. This will surely increase exposure and attract more votes and funding opportunities.
  5. At the end of the Grant Round, before announcing the results, a 72-hour Grace Period will be held to prevent a Sybil-attack. During the Grace Period, each project will be required to contact HackerLink to confirm the authenticity of the project, and after the Grace Period, the project will be able to take out the community donations and the prize pool to match the prize.
