We are excited to introduce the Injective X Google Cloud Illuminate Hackathon.

The Injective x Google Cloud Illuminate Hackathon is the prime builder launchpad for Web3 finance applications with a $100,000 prize pool. Developers globally are invited to join to build innovative Web3 projects that can revolutionize the blockchain industry as a whole.

It is a unique opportunity for builders to continue showcasing their creativity and innovation within the Injective ecosystem. As we’ve witnessed applications across all sectors building on Injective, this hackathon has expanded its track options, allowing for even more projects to participate. In addition, Injective and Google Cloud will be providing technical guidance, mentorship and prizes to help accelerate startups into the next stages of their growth.

You are encouraged to participate regardless of your project stage. The Injective Illuminate Hackathon encourages all builders to create native projects on Injective which currently stands as the fastest layer 1 blockchain. Participants can create projects in areas such as DeFi, NFTs, SocialFi, gaming, tooling and more. A list of potential hackathon project ideas will also be published in the coming days.
