Hackathon Phases

Idea Submission: Hackers are invited to fill out the form to share their project ideas. Tell us what you would like to build using CELO's cutting-edge technology and the Bunzz platform. We're excited to hear your creative solutions!

Project Filtering: Our expert panel will carefully review all submissions and filter projects based on specific criteria. We are looking for projects with the potential to make a real impact and align with the goals of the CELO X Bunzz community.

Hacking Phase: Once the projects that meet our criteria are selected, the teams behind them will move to the hacking phase. This is where the real action happens! You'll have the opportunity to bring your ideas to life and build your project with the support of our mentors and resources.

Submission Rules:

To ensure fairness and maintain the integrity of the hackathon, please adhere to the following submission rules. Projects will only be considered valid for evaluation if they meet the following criteria:

  1. Originality: Submissions must be the original work of the participating team. Plagiarism or the use of pre-existing projects will lead to disqualification.

  2. Web3 Focus: Projects should be centered around Web3 technologies, such as blockchain, decentralized applications (dApps), smart contracts, or other relevant areas within the Web3 ecosystem.

  3. Working Deployment Link: Each submission must include a working deployment link that allows judges to interact with the project. Ensure that the link remains active and accessible throughout the evaluation period.

  4. Deployed Contract Address : You must provide the addresses of deployed contracts on the relevant blockchain network(s). This will allow us to verify the functionality of your contracts.

  5. GitHub Repository: Include a link to the GitHub repository of your project. The repository should contain all the code and resources related to your project.

  6. Readme Documentation: Provide comprehensive documentation in the project's README file. Include instructions on how to set up the repository locally, dependencies required, and any other relevant details that can help evaluators understand and run your project.

  7. No Plagiarism: Ensure that your submission does not violate intellectual property rights or contain unauthorized use of third-party code or assets. All resources used should be properly attributed and licensed.
