Overview Intro

Avalanche and Dorahacks are launching the Avalanche Asia Hackathon for developers and early stage projects from around the world that offers a total investment prize pool of more than $5,000,000!

More than that, winners will get the prize pool in the form of joint investment and support from all our sponsors consisting of more than 20 prominent VCs, exchanges, key ecosystem players and Avalanche’s own ecosystem funds, Avatar & Blizzard.

This is an unprecedented growth and investment opportunity for your projects to grow in and out of Asia as we have gathered the top partners within the region and global ecosystem enablers to offer their support and resources to you. At the same time, we want global projects to use this opportunity to enter and strengthen their positions in the Asian market with the right support.

We are looking for dApps and projects focusing on DeFi, Web3, Metaverse, NFT, Gamefi, and Infrastructure that are building on Avalanche or looking to port over from an existing EVM compatible chain. So, if you have an innovative and novel blockchain project that you are/want to build on Avalanche, come and join us, wherever you are!

Benefits of Avalanche Asia Hackathon

We have gathered VCs, Exchanges, Wallets, Trading firms, Launchpad, Media and ecosystem OGs to provide you a one stop acceleration hackathon ever.


Become a portfolio project of more than 20 prominent VCs and key players

As an invested project of funds like SNZ, NGC, Spark Digital, A&T, Matrixport and more, you will also get the support they provide which will open doors to global opportunities, exposure and future investments. This will also significantly increase your project’s branding and credibility.


Stand the chance to get into exchange incubator and priority listing slots

We have the incubator arms of exchanges like Huobi, Kucoin and MEXC onboard as investment sponsors and they will be offering the strong winning projects opportunities to be listed on their exchanges or a slot in their incubation programs.


Global ecosystem exposure and partnership opportunities

Having our ecosystem funds and enablers such as Blizzard, AVATAR, Avalaunch, Aventures DAO and Muhabbit Capital as investment sponsors ensures that Avalanche is committed to grow with you and each of them brings strong regional coverage to ensure support in all the key markets.


High level of technical & marketing support throughout the hackathon

There will be a full series of workshops to help you get a deep understanding of Avalanche and how to build on the platform throughout the duration of the hackathon. There will also be weekly demo days starting in early March for projects to showcase their BUIDLs and get more exposure with the community. This also gives a chance for projects to create your own rewards for the community that are voting for you as early supporters of your project allowing you to get a bigger portion of the matching funds.
