Siacoin (SC) Hackathon Challenge
The challenge that is given in this Hackathon is to create a next generation app or developer tool built on Near, with a front end UI that is hosted on Skynet.
A previously built “Near app” with the UI moved to Skynet is also acceptable. And, the original team who have made the Near app can complete the migration to Skynet. It is important for the core team to accept the SkyNet App merge request.
As a part of the submission request, it has been stated that the project should be open source. The Skynet should be implemented as a front-end UI for a new or existing Near app, and the app should be doing something useful, interesting, and entertaining. Completed submissions with demo videos are considered to be the best for judgment.
The recommended apps and ideas are Uniswap front end, balancer front-end, balancer instructions for deployment to Skynet, Mooniswap front-end, Mooniswap instructions for deployment to Skynet, Skynet Paste Bin. They also accept apps which are those similar to those in the Skynet App Store. And, also an application which is built on Near, but whose UI is hosted on the SkyNet.
