Welcome to Hackusama, the first-ever hackathon for the Kusama or Polkadot ecosystem.
Hackusama is a 7-week online hackathon, launched for developers to "Build a Blockchain" or submit your wildest tools, visualizations, and ideas to the "Open Hack" category. A $30,000 USD prize pool is up for grabs.
Watch the Introduction to Hackusama webinar for a complete overview and technical presentation about Kusama and Substrate.
Kusama is a network built by Dr. Gavin Wood, Polkadot founder and cofounder and CTO of Ethereum. It's a risk-taking, fast-moving ‘canary in the coal mine’ built with nearly the exact same code as its cousin network, Polkadot. Kusama is a living, breathing, multichain ecosystem built to put the best tech in the hands of change agents to spark innovation, disrupt the status quo, and quickly push the limits of what’s possible.
