Here’s the deal

You will have two weeks (14 days) to complete an exclusive project for Hive. Your project can be anything that benefits the Hive ecosystem.

The top three entries will win a portion of the total reward pool based on their position:

  • - First Place 50%
  • - Second Place 30%
  • - Third Place 20%

If you want to contribute to the reward pool, send a transfer of Hive (no HBD please) to @prizepool and the amount will be added to the reward pool and 100% will be distributed to the winners.

  • - Link to live project
  • - [Optional] Video showing the project in action.

You must drop a link to your post in #hackathon-entries channel in the STEMGeeks Discord to be considered.

It is recommended to use the #technology tag so you can also be featured on STEMGeeks and be eligible for STEM rewards


There are some rules that must be followed to be eligible. These rules will be strictly enforced, with no exceptions. Plan accordingly.

  • - All projects must be open source and provide a public repo.

Each entry will be scored based on these metrics:

  • - Originality
