Winners of the latest Solana Season Hackathon unveiled

Solana Foundation, the overseers and principal supporter of the Solana blockchain, today announced the winners of the Solana Season hackathon, which attracted 350 project teams from East Asia, India, Eastern Europe, Africa, Vietnam, and Brazil to participate in building dApps on Solana’s layer-1 blockchain.

Grand Prize Winner

Among the 39 standout projects across DeFi, NFTs, Web3, and beyond, under-collateralized DeFi options platform, Zeta.Markets, emerged as the grand prize winner.

Founded with a mission to enable anyone to hedge, speculate, and take opinions on a limitless variety of market movements, Zeta.Markets will introduce a hybrid orderbook and automated market-making platform that allows for efficient pricing, deep liquidity, and greater capital efficiency via portfolio margining capabilities. Zeta.Markets is powered by Pyth Oracles and plans to integrate with the Serum DEX, Solana’s first central limit order book (CLOB) for trading, data, pricing, and risk management.

The Runner-Ups

Runner-ups across the main categories of the hackathon include:

Best Integration Projects

As a way to further facilitate the growth of its ecosystem, the Solana Foundation teamed up with other notable crypto Solana-based projects like Serum, KIN, Pyth, and Raydium to select project submissions that best integrated with their respective technologies.

Successful Hackathon

Optimized for scalability to power this generation of consumer applications built on the blockchain, this hackathon allowed Solana to improve essential documentation, tooling, and other educational resources to better serve developers that are integrated into their software.

Participants were encouraged to build Solana-based apps and hackers were allowed to build tools or any infrastructure they believed would be beneficial to the overall ecosystem. Projects were evaluated based on five categories: functionality, potential impact, novelty, design/UX, and composability.
