Hackathon Bounty

Further Details


This is an “evergreen” bounty, awarded whenever someone submits a claim that, in our absolute discretion, meets our criteria. It can only be claimed once for the same Hackathon.



Hackathons – intense coding experiences where Devs get together to “hack” on smart contract solutions – are a powerful feature of the blockchain space. In our view, the more Evernode-focused hackathons, the better the world will be.



We are willing to support hackathons focused on use-cases for Evernode, where:

  • The hackathon appears to be genuinely focused on showcasing use-cases for Evernode.

  • The hackathon results in (at least) “proofs of concept” or “working toys” of Evernode use-cases.

  • The hackathon is publicised and its outputs celebrated.

  • We know the hackathon happened because photos or other content are shared on social media.

  • We’re reasonably confident the bounty is being claimed by the key person/people involved in organising the hackathon.


Prize Evers

In addition to the bounty, we may decide to contribute prizes in the form of awards of Evers to one or more worthy winners of the hackathon.


Technical Assistance

In addition to the bounty, we will endeavour to provide technical assistance or expertise (often remotely) to help developers ideate and realise their hackathon projects.



We may pay a bounty to the organiser(s) of the hackathon. Payable in Evers to the Xahau account nominated by the claimant. The Bounty may have tax consequences for the claimant. These are solely the responsibility of the claimant and we make no representations or warranties about the bounty being tax free or otherwise exempt from tax in the claimant’s jurisdiction. If you are Australian and registered for GST we will provide a complying Tax Invoice for the Bounty upon request.



All Bounties are awarded in Evers. We make no representations about Evers having any particular value, or any value at all. Regardless of their market value, they will always be useful for purchasing services from the Evernode Network.


Our bounty program is a discretionary. We may, in our absolute discretion, decide not to award a bounty or to award a lesser or higher amount than publicised. In particular:

  • We may award a higher bounty if the claimant’s submission is particularly impressive;
  • We may award a lesser bounty if the claimant’s submission is worthy, but only just;
  • We may decline to award a bounty if we suspect fraud or disingenuousness, or if we are unsatisfied that we are paying the bounty to the worthy claimant, or if for any reason (such as international sanctions) we are unable to pay Evers to the claimant.
