Polkadot on Gitcoin

Gitcoin has integrated Polkadot and Kusama tokens (DOT and KSM) into their tech stack, making us one of the first full integrations outside of the Ethereum ecosystem.

To celebrate, we have created Hello World! by Polkadot. Consisting of 23 different challenges, it is designed to bring you on a journey through the Polkadot universe, with fun, interesting ways to expand your skills.

The Categories

The challenges are divided over four categories: Beginner, Intermediate, Advanced and Ecosystem. All come with extensive resources to guide you along the way.

Beginners

Conquer your learning curves and rise to the mission! Launch a local development chain, explore Westend, begin coding with Javascript, deploy a node – we have all these and more for you to choose from.

Intermediate

Ready to raise the bar? Make a multisig transaction? Update the Pallet Template to include a storage item for a custom struct? Perform a forkless upgrades on a local development chain? If so, this is the challenge level for you.

Advanced

Dive deeper and check out our advanced challenges. Write a smart contract in ink!. Build a transaction fee estimator with Sidecar. Be inspired and build your own end-to-end dApp.

Ecosystem

Complete an array of challenges from projects in the Polkadot ecosystem like Acala, Moonbeam, Phala, Plasm, and more.

Ready to join in?

All the challenges have been capped, so be in the first 50 valid submissions to get your reward. Prizes per challenge are as follows:

  • Beginner - 3 DOT
