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.
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.
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.
Be part of a global community of developers aligned around a vision for a better decentralized internet.
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. :)
Absolutely! Our events are open to both beginners and veterans of the web3 world.
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!
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.
