 If Web3 is going to transform tech, we will need more talent.

After an explosion of innovation, the crypto and Web3 industry desperately needs more developers. Developers in this new burgeoning industry have the opportunity to have an outsized impact. Crypto and Web3 need more developers to help build the future.

CoinDesk’s Consensus Festival is the world’s largest, longest-running, and most influential gathering that brings together all sides of crypto, blockchain, and Web3. Since its inception in 2015, Consensus has served as grounds for calibration, collaboration, and resolution amid a profound technological transformation towards blockchain technology. Our recently-completed 2022 Web3athon was the largest multi-chain hack to date, with 17 chains involved, $800,000 in prizes, and dozens of new teams to Web3.

As part of Consensus, the 2023 Web3athon will focus on bringing web2 developers into web3 and supporting web3 native builders and newcomers with partner grant programs awarding cash prizes to winning teams.  This hackathon is laser-focused on teams and projects open to seeking out the right protocol to build on and will showcase the grant and DevRel initiatives of our partner protocols and foundations.
