November 18 — 20, 2022
The world's first hackathon on the FEVM, the Ethereum compatible layer of the Filecoin Virtual Machine (FVM). Join us to build on the frontier of Web3.
What use is computing without storage? For too long, blockchains
have been defined by a frustrating tradeoff—should my decentralized
network focus on compute, or on storage? We've seen incredible
innovation on both sides—Ethereum the world's largest computer—and
IPFS & Filecoin, the world's largest decentralized storage
While we've seen thousands of groundbreaking DApps developed harnessing the power of these technologies, under the hood, they require complex scaffolding, disjointed layers, or complicated developer patterns. Sometimes even, decentralized storage is disregaded, opting instead to return to the "easier" centralized methods.
A small team of builders at Protocol Labs set out to change that, and with the Filecoin Virtual Machine (FVM), have turned the Filecoin blockchain into a programmable platform that developers can deploy programs to, finally uniting compute and data on a single network.
But they did not stop there... The FEVM creates a runtime within the FVM which simulates the Ethereum Virtual Machine, making all smart contracts which compile to EVM bytecode, such as Solidity contracts, executable on the Filecoin blockchain.
With completely decentralized compute and storage united once more—we're more excited than ever for this new frontier—and for what you'll build.
At Hack FEVM, you'll have the support of a huge community of experts, mentors, sponsors, developer advocates, and other community members who want to help you build something awesome.
We'll introduce you to teammates, connect you with mentors, unblock technical problems, and help you deliver a working product that pushes the web3 ecosystem forward.
Be part of a global community of developers aligned around a vision for a better decentralized internet.
