BUIDL the Future: A Global Hack for Web3

October 27, 2022

A chance for builders to explore the web3 ecosystem while building with Coinbase Wallet and Node.

Coinbase Cloud is excited to co-host Buidl the Future: A Global Hack for Web3, which opened for registrations this week! Joining forces with Polygon, Coindesk, and HackerEarth we believe this hackathon will offer another opportunity to unite the global web3 developer community to drive education and innovation in crypto. 

Coinbase Cloud, which provides web3 APIs, SDKs, services and infrastructure to power the next generation of software builders, is thrilled to bring Node and Coinbase Wallet to the forefront of web3 developer education during this challenge. Recently launched, Node empowers Web3 developers to seamlessly access the blockchain and build applications faster, safer, easier, and best of all, for free. Coinbase Wallet has also recently launched tools focused on improving the developer experience, including native testnet faucets, a dedicated testnet asset tab, redesigned network management, including a network switcher on home screen Multi-wallet.

Build faster: Build and launch your web3 app in minutes with Node instant API access. Rely on trusted services: Build your product with peace of mind, relying on enterprise-grade security and high-availability infrastructure.

Reduce costs & complexity: Save on upfront costs and scale seamlessly as your usage needs grow. Node allows you to focus on your products and customers leaving the hard bits of scaling blockchain infrastructure to us.

The event began on October 17th, with project submissions due by December 15, 2022. Content and materials will be provided in several languages including Japanese, Korean, Spanish, Portuguese and English, attracting skilled developers from around the world to participate. The Hackathon features some of Coinbase Cloud’s developer tools, Coinbase Wallet SDK and Node, specialized in providing accessible cryptocurrency to those involved in the metaverse and web3. 

“Hackathons provide a creative outlet for developers to put their coding skills to work to solve interesting challenges, and web3 is the internet’s next frontier ripe for innovation,” said Sachin Gupta, CEO of HackerEarth. “Our partnership with Coinbase Cloud, a leader in web3 developer tools, will allow our team and the entire developer community to develop projects that will drive the future of crypto as a disruptive technology.”
