Build the foundation for the decentralized web. A Hackathon by ETHGlobal and Protocol Labs.
July 8 - 27, 2022

The decentralized web needs a decentralized filesystem.

The future is web3: a digital world that is censorship-resistant, decentralized, and trustless. A web where users control their own data and identity.

HackFS is an ETHGlobal hackathon focused on building the foundation for that world. We've partnered with Protocol Labs - the organization building Filecoin and IPFS - to run an event centered on dapps, web3, decentralized storage, and everything in between.

We're also working with partners across the Ethereum and Filecoin ecosystems to ensure that hackers have a wide variety of composable technologies to use to build their hacks.

Build with an entire ecosystem at your back.

At HackFS, you'll have the support of a huge community of experts, mentors, sponsors, developer advocates, and other community members who want to help you build something awesome.

Top-notch support

We'll introduce you to teammates, connect you with mentors, unblock technical problems, and help you deliver a working product that pushes the web3 ecosystem forward.

Join a Community

Be part of a global community of developers aligned around a vision for a better decentralized internet.




Does HackFS cost money?

HackFS is 100% free for hackers. All that we ask of you is that you focus on building your project, check-in with us on your progress regularly, and participate in the community we build around this hackathon. :)

I'm new to Ethereum or Filecoin. Can I participate?

Absolutely! Our events are open to both beginners and veterans of the web3 world.

How many people can be on a team?

You can form teams of up to 5 people. There are no restrictions for team members, so you can team up with hackers of any country or experience level!

Is there a Code of Conduct?

Yes! For years, our core ethos has been to make it easy for anyone to dream big. To that end, we've developed a Code of Conduct.
