MetaFi the CoinEx Smart Chain Hackathon Kicks off!


It gives us great pleasure to announce to our community members that MetaFi the CoinEx Smart Chain Hackathon is now live!


During the past ten-odd years, GameFi has seen a seismic shift, and smart contract developers are reshaping such fields as finance, gaming, and social networking. As an emerging public chain, CSC aims to evolve into the infrastructure of the blockchain world that provides improved services for blockchain developers, enabling them to realize their blockchain dreams and build better next-gen blockchain applications.


Welcome to MetaFi the CoinEx Smart Chain Hackathon! Build a fun app that features social networking and metaverse elements on CSC and win $100,000.


This year’s CSC hackathon aims to introduce more developers to the public chain and help them build their own metaverse projects on CSC while encouraging more community members to experience the metaverse, GameFi, and SocialFi. During the past supportive plans of CSC, we saw many outstanding DeFi projects. As such, we hope that more MetaFi projects will contribute to CSC’s ecosystem building during the present hackathon.


Through this hackathon, we hope to identify more projects that share our ambitions for MetaFi and Web 3 to spread the value of blockchain together.
