Within the framework of ETHDenver BUIDLathon, Parity Technologies announces a generous prize pool for both virtual and in-person attendees.
The first phase of hackathon, ‘Pitch the Next Polkadot Parachain’, offers 5 prizes $1,500 each. The participants should create a pitch deck of 15 slides maximum to make a high-level presentation of a product that could win next parachain slot auction.
The second phase dubbed ‘Build a Polkadot Parachain Using Substrate’ is for the on-line participants of ETHDenver. Its applicants should write a full-fledged Substrate-based L1 blockchain.

Two winners of the second phase will receive $5,000 and $2,500 prizes.
Urban Osvald, Developer Relations Partnerships Lead of W3F, stressed that his team is excited by the opportunity to engage leading Ethereum (ETH) devs in Polkadot:
We’re thrilled to be back at ETHDenver. Not only is it a refreshing change of pace to participate in an in-person event, but also to see how the entire Polkadot ecosystem has grown. We have over twenty hours of Polkadot content, from in-depth Substrate workshops led by Parity core engineers to dozens of ecosystem projects showcasing their tech in presentations, workshops, and panel discussions. I’m confident that this year ETHDenver will be a splashing success!
Besides the bounty campaign, the Web Foundation (W3F) and Parity Technologies are going to organize a series of educational events between Feb.15th and Feb. 19th.
