Roll up! Final call for submissions

There’s only three days left to submit your project to the hackathon! Take the weekend to ensure everything is tip-top and be sure to double check the rules, task list, and requirements before you submit your work: 

Submission requirements

  • Your permaweb app must be fully decentralized without the use of centralized plugins. There should be no need to use a centralized login approach while you have a fully decentralized approach directly with Arweave.
  • Your submission must include an arweave.net

Why Arweave?


Hello November! If you’ve just joined us, fear not, as there are still 11 days to build, finalise, and submit your build to our hackathon. 

Fun fact Friday: Why Arweave?

Hold the line: half way hacking


We’ve passed the half way point! 

Fun fact Friday: Did you know that Over 20 years, 98.4% of web links suffer from rot, becoming totally inaccessible to future generations?! By building applications and tools on the permaweb, you are helping preserve access to information for generations to come. 

In need of some inspiration?! Here are some awesome examples of what you can build with Arweave: 

ArWiki - Think Wikipedia, but permanent

Weavemail - Send permanent emails within the Arweave network 

Scribe - A Medium-style decentralised blogging platform

ArweaveID - Attach a unique ID to your content across the Arweave
