Registration and submissions for the Interchain Hackathon are now open!
To embark on your Hackathon adventure, please sign up and carefully read through the rules (opens new window) and challenge descriptions below.
Serving as the economic center of Cosmos, the Cosmos Hub is a blockchain that provides vital services to the Interchain. The Cosmos Hub pioneered a new era in the blockchain space by being the first public proof-of-stake blockchain built on top of a Byzantine Fault Tolerant consensus engine.
For this challenge, you are encouraged to build something that combines Interchain NFTs with Interchain Security and maximizes the capability of IBC, helping grow submissions into viable products that add value to the ATOM economic zone.
Some rough ideas for participants:
Total: 4,500 ATOMs
IRISHUB (a.k.a IRISnet) is an Interchain NFT Hub tailored for next-generation dApps. Built using the Cosmos SDK, it facilitates cross-chain interoperability of NFTs, services, and on/off-chain systems.
For this challenge, you should build something on IRISHUB testnet using the ICS721 Interchain NFTs. This could be an application, platform, marketplace or other use cases that utilizes the ICS721 to provide NFT interoperability.
Some rough ideas for you:
Total: 1,490,758 IRIS
Stargaze is a community-owned app chain for NFTs and beyond. Stargaze prioritizes UX and UI to offer the most seamless user experience. Stargaze is 100% carbon neutral and requires zero gas. It is powered by CosmWasm and $STARS. Stargaze offers a fully decentralized NFT marketplace and exemplifies high levels of security, transparency, and flexibility. All chain code is open-source.
Create governance adjustable entry incentives and exit tax for NFT transfers.
Stargaze aims to make a comfortable home for NFTs to live on-chain. In order to facilitate this, we would like to build a mechanism that pays an incentive for NFTs that come to Stargaze from other chains. Inversely, Stargaze would like an adjustable tax for NFTs that transfer to another chain. This is very similar to a tariff mechanism in trade between two different countries.
Stargaze aims to integrate with Gravity Bridge in order to enable NFT transfers from Ethereum. In order to do this, we will need the following steps to be completed:
(1) Install sdk.nft 0.46 on Gravity Bridge testnet. Gravity Bridge will be using sdk.nft and therefore needs the upgrade. The testnet branch can be found here (opens new window).
(2) Install sdk.nft based ics721 version into Gravity Bridge.
(3) Update Gravity Bridge orchestrator in the following way:
(4) Test an NFT transfer from Ethereum -> Gravity Bridge -> Stargaze
Note that for this challenge, you will be collaborating with @synchronetic (Twitter)

Uptick Network is an NFT ecosystem application chain built on the Cosmos SDK with EVM module support. We encourage participants to explore and create innovative cross-chain use cases based on NFTs, including but not limited to collectable, utility, and rights-based NFTs. Uptick Network provides the ability to convert NFT assets from Uptick EVM to Uptick Cosmos-SDK, and enables cross-chain transfer of NFT assets based on IBC ICS-721 through Uptick Cosmos-SDK and other chains.
For this challenge, you should create NFT assets and dApps using Uptick's EVM and leveraging ICS721 Interchain NFTs between the Uptick Network testnet and other GON testnet chains to enable the display of imaginative use cases.
Suggestions for the challenges:
Total: 500,000 UPTICK
Uptick Network encourages active participation from developers in the construction of the NFT application ecosystem on Uptick Network. It is not just about participating in this hackathon, but more importantly, taking the projects developed during the hackathon to the stage of actual operation. Uptick Network will provide strong support in this regard. All winners will enter the whitelist of Uptick Network's developer community and be prioritized for participation in Uptick Network's developer incentive program, which includes further incentives and incubation support, helping to turn your promising ideas and prototypes into fully operational products.
OmniFlix is the interoperable p2p network for creators & sovereign communities (DAOs or otherwise) to mint, manage, monetize & coordinate distribution activities around NFTs.
Build a dApp (other than a marketplace) that will utilize interchain NFTs on OmniFlix and a DeFi protocol
Bonus points will be awarded if CosmWasm Smart Contracts or ICA are used.
Total: 100,000 FLIX
More details will be added soon…
