There is a hard deadline for the Moralis x Google 2022 Defining DeFi hackathon on November 11th, 23:59 UTC.

This means your hackathon project needs to be submitted before this time for it to be judged in the hackathon.

All deadlines listed for the hackathon, unless otherwise specified, are at 23:59 UTC.

Hackathon projects will be submitted using a submission form.

The submission form will allow you to attach a ~5-minute pitch video with a project overview where you can demo the project.

You will also be able to submit a deck or document outlining the project, its use cases, the team behind it, go-to-market strategy, etc. You will also submit your email address, as well as a GitHub link to the project.

The submission form will be published on this page by October 17th, so you will have plenty of time to submit your project before November 11th.

The following reasons will be grounds for disqualification:

  • Late submission (after November 11th, 23:59 UTC)
  • The project was built for another hackathon
  • The project does not adhere to the hackathon rules
  • The project was built before the start of the hackathon
  • Plagiarism

It is allowed to continue building an existing project and submit it in this hackathon. However, only the features added after the Moralis x Google Defining DeFi hackathon starting date will be judged. When submitting an existing project, you must clearly specify what parts of the project are new and what was created before the start of the Moralis x Google Defining DeFi hackathon.

You can begin building your project for the hackathon following the Opening Ceremony on October 3rd. Make sure to check back to this page for all the latest details.

Our judges will carefully go through each Moralis x Google Defining DeFi hackathon submission during the judging process.

However, due to the number of hackathon participants, our hackathon judges will not be able to provide individual feedback for the submitted projects.

The Moralis x Google Defining DeFi hackathon is a fully remote hackathon. This means the entire hackathon will take place online so that you can participate wherever you are based. Make sure to sign up to the official Moralis YouTube and Moralis Web3 Community YouTube to catch all hackathon workshops.

The winners of the Moralis x Google Defining DeFi hackathon will be announced on November 18th during the Closing Ceremony.
Make sure to sync your calendar with the official Moralis x Google Defining DeFi calendar so that you’ll never miss a single event.
Prizes will begin to be paid out after the hackathon has been concluded. More exact details on how prizes will be paid out and any potential requirements will be added to this page by October 17th.
Winning team submissions will receive a payout to the team itself, rather than several payouts to the team members. It is up to the team to distribute their winnings internally amongst the team members.
There is no restriction on team size. Keep in mind that teams will themselves need to distribute any potential hackathon prizes internally among its team members.
