Moralis and Cronos are teaming up to present the Moralis Cronos Web3 Metaverse Hackathon!
The Moralis Cronos Web3 Metaverse Hackathon
Build gaming metaverse projects and win prizes this summer! Moralis can now proudly reveal that we will host the Moralis Cronos Web3 Metaverse Hackathon this summer. Applications are open until August 15th, 2022. The hackathon itself will run from August 20th to September 5th, 2022.
Inspired by Moralis’ recent integration of Cronos, the Web3 Metaverse Hackathon empowers developers to create groundbreaking Web3 games and metaverses using the ultimate combination of Moralis’ streamlined multichain workflow, and Cronos’ fast EVM compatibility.
“Teaming up with Cronos for the Web3 Metaverse Hackathon is a dream come true for us,” says Ivan on Tech, CEO of Moralis. “The community will love our Cronos integration and this opportunity to build the web3 games of tomorrow. We can’t wait to see what they come up with!”
$60,000 in prizes are already on the table, with more to be announced soon. Ken Timsit, Managing Director of Cronos and Cronos Labs, is excited to see how the event will help bridge the gap between Web2 and Web3 development:
“Moralis enables developers to build decentralized applications like never before, particularly Web2 and game developers who are new to Web3 technology. Moralis is one of the most developer-friendly companies in our space. Their documentation and tutorials are world-class, and their products make it easy to add blockchain functionality to any application with just a few lines of code.”
The Moralis Cronos Web3 Metaverse Hackathon will launch on August 20th, 2022, and run until September 5th, 2022.
$60,000 in prizes has already been announced, with more due to be pledged soon for a total prize pool of at least $100,000.
To be in with a chance to win, hackathon participants must register by August 15th, 2022, and build a gaming, metaverse, or GameFi dapp on the Cronos blockchain using Moralis. The project must also qualify as an MVP, and there needs to be a working prototype that can be demoed at the end of the event.
Both individual developers and teams are eligible to enter. Individuals looking for a team can join the Moralis Discord to find like-minded collaborators.
Participants will also get access to leading advice from the bleeding edge of GameFi. Moralis, Cronos, and many other soon-to-be-announced partners will share invaluable market insights, tips, and tactics for standing out in the fast-paced ecosystems of Web3.

The Moralis Cronos Integration
Cronos is the latest network to be integrated into the Moralis cross-chain workflow. Web3 developers can now use the Cronos API to build with the Moralis full-stack suite. This gives them access to time-saving features like Moralis Identity, Moralis Real-Time, and Moralis SDK support.
The 2022 Moralis Cronos Web3 Metaverse Hackathon is the perfect opportunity for developers to try these tools out! Furthermore, to make Cronos developers’ lives even easier, Moralis will also be integrating Crypto.com’s “DeFi Wallet”. What will you build?
