Metis Hackathon Recap & Spotlight

After three months of BUIDLing, our Metis Hackathon yielded an amazing 80 submissions, all of which were unique and innovative in their own ways. Judging proved to be quite the arduous task, sorting through the submissions and distilling the various aspects of the projects to ultimately determine the winners. We are so grateful to all our Hackers and are already looking forward to hosting our next Hackathon.

Now, to shine some spotlight on the winners!

Decentralized Finance (DeFi) Track:

Winner: DeHive

DeHive Cluster is a Yield Generating Crypto Index that unites the best-performing tokens into one basket. Metis Cluster is composed to reflect a particular market segment and bring maximum profit. Current timeline for deployment onto Andromeda mainnet is sometime in March, stay tuned for further details.

Runner Up: EYWA

EYWA solves the interoperability issue. dApps in the DeFi space will become cross-chain, so developers will not build new apps for every chain but will activate cross-chain functionality. Currently, EYWA plans to launch around April-May this year, stay tuned for further details.

Popular Web3 Integrations Track:

Winner: Metis Safe

Metis Safe is an Ethereum-based smart contract wallet that needs a minimum number of persons to authorize a transaction before it can take place (M-of-N). If you have three primary stakeholders in your firm, for example, you may configure the wallet to need consent from all three persons before the transaction is sent. This ensures that no single person may jeopardize the funds.

Metis Safe is live on Andromeda mainnet, check it out here. It will also be submitted to the start-up pitch at AIBC in Dubai.

Runner Up: Aragon Client

Aragon client provides a full-fledged platform for DAO creation and management. The project has been deployed on Andromeda and can be viewed here.

Digital Art / Collectibles Track:

United Nations Sustainable Goals Track:

Winner: WISE

WiseID is the first NFT based Web3 Identity Wallet of a user. It provides the ability to manage all kinds of identity and data points for a user. This allows for issuers, verifiers and requestors to come together and work in a collaborative fashion. With data present on the chain, there is no need for further verifications and hence brings unmatched efficiency into business processes resulting in greater opportunities and financial inclusion.

The estimated launch date for this project is February 6. Check out the submission here.

Runner Up: Crypto Recycling Machine

Crypto Recycling Machine gives an opportunity to recycle different kinds of bottles and get paid in cryptocurrency.

Stay tuned to our social channels to stay up to date with everything Metis, and one final thank you to all our amazing participants!
