We're thrilled about the opportunity to collaborate with Grant for the Web. They will be funding projects that help the internet become more open, independent, and fair. The long-term promise of Web Monetization may help us all move away from a system that is currently based on invasive advertising.

The DEV Hackathon is an opportunity to experiment with Web Monetization and to create projects that innovate on the technology itself, or to put forth some creative and experimental applications. There's plenty of great prizes on the line, and we can't wait to see what the community comes up with.

We're also hopeful that some participants will expand their DEV Hackathon project into a full-blown submission to the Grant for the Web CFP. That's an opportunity to earn a seriously impactful grant to continue working on your idea well after this DEV contest ends.

Have fun!
