Welcome to Web3athon, a hackathon that aims to bring creatives and developers together to solve some of the most pressing hyperlocal problems facing communities all over the world.

How it works  

Web3athon has two stages. In Stage 1: Join, you’ll dive deep into research to understand how our hyperlocal themes impact your communities. In Stage 2: Prototype, a select set of groups will receive hands-on support from the chains to turn their vision into reality.

  • Stage 1 - Join
    • June 9 – 11  Join us at Consensus online or in Austin, Texas
    • June 12 - August 7 Imagine your hyperlocal solution
    • August 7 Submit ideas for Judging
  • Stage 2 - Prototype
    • August 17 Shortlist Announced
    • August 17 - September 19  Make it real
    • September 20 - Submit your Build by 1:29 pm CT on Tuesday September 20th.

What do you submit in each stage?

STAGE ONE Explore the 5 Web3athon challenges, research ideas, and submit an idea that responds to one of the challenges and will use one of the sponsor’s technologies. 

STAGE TWO - Find out which of your ideas have been shortlisted, and use that sponsor’s technology to build out your MVP.

  Crypto Research and Design Lab (CRADL)

Launched in January 2022, The Crypto Research and Design Lab (CRADL)’s vision is to put people at the center of crypto. Its mission is to use evidence-based thought leadership to accelerate the crypto industry toward its goal of creating a more equitable, inclusive society. We are partnered with The World Economic Forum’s CISA (Crypto Sustainability Accelerator). 


City of Austin City of Austin

In line with the hyperlocal theme, Web3athon is leaning into the fact that Consensus is taking place in Austin, Texas. Austin’s Office of Innovation will be providing links to local datasets that local teams can use directly, and remote teams can use as inspiration for finding useful data in their own cities.
