Welcome to the MakerDAO Hackathons Initiative: A place where organizers can get the information they need to include MakerDAO in their hackathons and where hackers can find the developer resources they need to build thier projects.
Please Note: Community Development is not accepting new sponsorships as we work through a larger than normal backlog of proposals, in addition to precautions for COVID-19. Sponsorship applications will re-open on July 1, 2020.

Find the resources you need
MakerDAO is a decentralised organization that brings stability to the crypto economy through Dai, the world's first decentralized stablecoin on the Ethereum blockchain. Dai is a secure, transparent, censorship-resistant programmable money that is the perfect building block for many emerging use-cases on the blockchain.
We believe that the future is decentralized and that you can make it real by building with Dai. By participating in, sponsoring, and organizing hackathons the Maker Foundation hopes to strengthen the developer community and push the limits of what can be built around MakerDAO and Dai.
The Maker Foundation is involved in hackathons in many ways:
Come up with hackathon themes and tracks
Participate as judges and mentors
Enroll hackathon participants and winners into our Grants program
Passion for programmable money
Excitement to build and be recognized
Track record of successful hackathons
Community excited to build with Dai
Desire to help build the future of finance
