It’s Not Too Late to Join CoinDesk and CRADL’s Web3athon

·2 min read

When you hear the word hackathon, you typically think of developers buried deep in their computers, furiously typing code. CoinDesk and CRADL’s Web3athon isn’t that kind of hackathon.

Web3athon is an entirely new form of competition, one that welcomes talent and creativity from all backgrounds and seeks to discover new ways crypto and Web3 technologies can be used to improve people’s lives. The more diverse talents your team brings to the table, the more poised you are to take home part of the $800,000 prize.

What makes Web3athon different?

Web3athon is not like other hackathons. It’s a hackathon for anyone interested in using technology to solve some hyperlocal challenges.

No coding skills? No problem.

To participate in Web3athon you don’t need to know how to code. You also don’t need to be a blockchain expert. You could be a writer, a designer or a human-centered researcher. All you need to bring to the table is your unique set of talents and skills and a passion for improving lives.

Below, find a list of roles that make for a well-rounded team.

  • Project Manager – Responsible for outlining the deadlines and keeping the team on track.

  • Research Manager – Responsible for understanding the needs of your idea’s target audience.

  • Technical Developer – Responsible for understanding each technology and helping you decide what to use to build your idea.

  • Visual Storyteller – Responsible for refining the pitch and making your idea come to life via your idea submission.
