a wide range of related and
typically colourful things.
Registration is open until Sept 28th.
Reclaiming the web is all about augmenting our ability to think and do for ourselves, reclaiming our time, and extending our ability to co-operate. And it is this cooperation that’s needed to bring web3 into reality.
We live in a vastly interconnected world and the web3 ecosystem is no different. The concept of a new, accessible open web is aimed at making everything interoperable and building a permanent, ownerless, and borderless foundation for the connected global community of which we are all a part.
Hack the Rainbow is a creative, collaborative, cross chain hackathon focused on building the bridges needed to make web3 an accessible reality for everyone. Our aim is to work with Ethereum partners and bring together the best tools for that build.
As our very first hackathon, we see Hack the Rainbow as a chance to explore that “wide range of related and colourful things” connecting the Ethereum and Near ecosystems together. We see it as a chance to deliver value, community education and broader opportunity for everyone wanting to explore the power of interoperability and interconnectedness.
With Hack the Rainbow, we are combining experts, mentors, educators, and community members from both Near and Ethereum with the goal of accelerating web3 adoption and doing so as a creative and collaborative commons.
The Rainbow Bridge
The Rainbow Bridge allows developers to utilize Ethereum assets and smart contracts on NEAR—a fast, scalable, and low-cost environment. The Bridge has the power to accelerate community development as it allows ETH users immediate access to apps built on NEAR.
This is the first trustless bridge of its kind. It supports ERC20, ERC721, and remains fully decentralized and adaptable to any future protocol changes on either side.
Live Free, Dev Hard!
Overcome current limitations and build your app in a fast, scalable, and low-cost environment.
Build community-owned apps that are decentralized, sustainable and that unlock the internet of value.
Open the Web!
With the bridge and the NEAR account model, you can build the revolution of the Open Web.
