The dust is finally settling from the exciting launch of the Stacks 2.0 mainnet, and now it's time to look forward and begin building powerful decentralized tech! One of the most important components of the protocol upgrade was the introduction of a smart contract programming language known as Clarity. Clarity gives developers the tools to deploy business logic on Stacks and enables an entirely new decentralized app ecosystem.

Over the next few weeks, hackers will have the opportunity to submit original Clarity smart contracts to win cash prizes! The Mainnet Smart Contract Challenge is your chance to show off your Clarity skills and produce functional, secure, open-source smart contracts.

Quick Overview:

  • The challenge will be running through Feb 18th.
  • There are two difficulty levels: basic and advanced, corresponding to $100 and $200 prize levels.
  • Teams of up to four are allowed. Each team/individual can submit a total of up to 5 unique smart contracts. (Submit 5 sensational, advanced contracts and you could win up to $1000 bucks!).
  • If we have over 50 submissions, the 50 best contracts will earn prizes.
  • We have some rockstar community judges helping out, so let's give a big thanks to Harini, Friedger, and Jason.

On your marks, get set, HACK! As always, the #hackathons channel in the Stacks Discord will be the best place to connect with other developers, share contract ideas, or ask for a helping hand. In addition, we've curated some helpful contract examples and resources on the hackathon page where you can find more challenge details and send in your submissions.
