OKT Chain (OKTC) is an EVM- and Wasm-compatible L1 built on Cosmos with a focus on true interoperability and maximized performance. At high scalability, developers can build and scale with low gas fees. The OKTC ecosystem and infrastructure, including the all-in-one multi-chain Web3 interface, enables a seamless experience for both developers and users.

💰 Best overall submission built on OKTC = $25,000 OKT

Ecosystem Partners and Bounties:

 💰 Best overall submission built on Sphereon = $5,000 USDT



Suggested ideas:

  • Utilise Spheron SDK to build a chrome extension that will scrap and store any data to the decentralized ecosystem;
  • Use Spheron & OKC to build NFT marketplace or defi or dao;
  • Use Spheron CLI or SDK to create a DAO based web deployment model;
  • Build Browser based or Desktop games and publish all of it’s assets & game to Spheron Storage;
  • Migrate your existing Web3 site from Web2 hosting to Spheron based web hosting;
  • Build a load balance that can be deployed on Spheron Compute; and
  • Build event memory app or web app that will create memories depending on the attended event and make it collectable.


 💰 Best Build using Zoksh Pay to help users pay in crypto = $5,000 USDT


Suggested Ideas:

Following are a few ideas for projects that could be built using Zoksh Pay to help users pay in crypto.

  • Social payments tool: Build a plugin that allows users to easily send and receive payments in various cryptocurrencies on popular social media platforms.
  • Payment chatbots: Develop chatbots that can be integrated into messaging platforms like WhatsApp, Telegram or Discord. These chatbots would allow users to initiate payments directly within the chat interface.
  • Multichain Interoperability with Zoksh Pay for Web3: Leverage Zoksh Pay integration to extend their existing Web3 platforms to 16 blockchains that are currently supported by Zoksh, allowing their users to make cross-chain transactions with ease and without requiring complex conversions.
  • Zoksh Pay integration into Web2 Products: Integrate Zoksh Pay into existing Web2 applications, such as e-commerce platforms, online marketplaces, and exchanges. This would allow users to pay for goods and services using cryptocurrencies seamlessly.
  • Integration plugins: Build plugins for popular content management systems (CMS) and ecommerce platforms, such as Opencart, Wix, & Magento, to allow merchants to easily accept cryptocurrency payments.
  • Build SDKs: Develop software development kits (SDKs) for various programming languages, such as Rust, Python, and Ruby, to enable developers to easily integrate Zoksh Pay into their own applications.


  • All projects must be built on / or use OKT Chain in some capacity.
  • Please include a link to your project code on Github (must be open source)
  • Please prepare a video to explain your project and how it works. The video shouldn’t be longer than 3 minutes
  • Please include a link to a deployment of your project/prototype on OKTC (mandatory)
  • Please check the resources above section to see how to get started on OKT Chain.
  • Please make sure that your idea is innovative and impactful, especially for mainstream users.


There are a total of 5 (five) criteria which projects will be assessed against, totaling 15 points:

  • Problem Scope - 5 points
    • Importance: Is the problem worth solving? Is it important / urgent?
    • Value: Is the proposed solution appealing / compelling / bring value to users?
    • Innovation: Does the project demonstrates innovative thinking and uniqueness?
    • Scalability: Does the proposed solution demonstrates mass adoption potential?
  • Design / UX - 3 points
    • Ease to use: Is the design well thought-out and responsive, with good interaction experience?
    • UI styling: clarity of page structure, choice of typesetting and layout.
  • Engineering - Smart Contract - 3 points
    • Security: Takes into account common vulnerabilities, follows common secure coding standards
    • Performance: Performant in terms of gas consumption in both operation and storage
    • Correctness: Soundness of logic, correct implementation
    • Completeness: to which extent is the smart contract functional and achieve the desired functionalities?
  • Engineering - Frontend / Backend - 2 points
    • Correctness: soundness of logic, clarity of design, bug-free implementation
    • Code Quality: abides by coding standards, accurateness of naming expression, detailedness of notes, appropriate length of functions, clarity of module demarcation, conformity to high cohesion and low coupling, accuracy of granularity division method, good scalability, etc.
    • Completeness: to which extent is the project functional and achieve the desired functionalities?
  • Composability - 2 points
    • How well does the Project Submission compose on, or with, other primitives in the OKC ecosystem? Does it have composability potential for future projects? What will be the impact of this on the broader OKC ecosystem?

Note: exact judging criteria subject to change ahead of the official hackathon submission period.
