Check out HackOnLisk2, the second edition of Lisk's online hackathon. Register and submit your application for DeFi or GameFi categories until November 15th.

Welcome to HackOnLisk, the first online hackathon for the Lisk ecosystem. To celebrate the upcoming Mainnet launch of Lisk Core 3.0.0, the Lisk Foundation is thrilled to invite you to Lisk’s first online hackathon. 

Lisk is an open-source blockchain application platform and was founded by Max Kordek and Oliver Beddows in 2016. With a goal of making blockchain technology accessible for everyone, Lisk's software development kit (SDK) allows developers to build blockchain applications in JavaScript, the world's most widely used programming language. 

Build a blockchain application with the Lisk SDK 5.1.0 using JavaScript. We expect blockchain applications from diverse industries and fields such as: 

  • Lending 

  • Stablecoins 

  • NFT marketplaces 

  • Collectibles 

  • Prediction markets 

  • Social media networks 

  • DAOs 

  • Oracles 

    However, feel free to get creative and build your own blockchain application.
