MakerDAO is sponsoring ETHDenver

February 9, 2018

We are very excited to be sponsoring ETHDenver (Feb16–19, 2018) and are offering a prize for the best project that integrates Dai (our stablecoin) or CDP’s into their product. A total of up to 5 MKR will be awarded to the team that best utilizes Dai in their application. We are looking for innovative use cases and solid MVP’s. Hackers also have the opportunity to receive additional MKR for continuing to work on their Dai project after ETHDenver. This reward will vest after milestones agreed upon by the Maker team and project are reached. We will reach out to candidate projects after the hackathon if we find some that fit the criteria of the core Maker team.

Hackathon Project Ideas

    • Design an interface that distills out the complexity of the Dai frontend to empower a specific use case of the platform (bonus points if you use a proxy contract.)
    • Create a frontend for decentralized ETH exposure using CDP’s.
    • Build a slick wallet for sending and storing Dai.
  • Build a frontend for loan mechanics.


The MKR will be awarded by a panel of judges that includes Andy Milenius, Joe Quintilian, Chris Padovano, Sean Brennan, Jessica Salomon and Tyler Sorensen . We will be looking for creative use cases and compelling product visions.
