The final winners of the Solana Season Hackathon, who are they?
To fuel the ecosystem’s rapid growth, the Solana Foundation has partnered with leading crypto projects to host one of the greatest hackathons of all time. The Solana Season brought together crypto developers and pioneers from around the world to hack Solana for three weeks.
With over 13,000 builders and 350 registered hackathons. The event also includes additional regions with a focus on East Asia, India, Eastern Europe, Africa, Vietnam and Brazil.
The jury was impressed by the quality and diversity of the projects and rated them in five categories: function, potential impact, design and experience as well as composability. Participants are encouraged to build Solana-based applications. The only requirement is that teams need to involve Solana in their projects.
I can’t wait any longer, here are a total of 11 typical projects selected for top honors in this hackathon, in addition to 39+ extremely potential projects behind it. Let’s take a look at the smiling faces with CoinCu this time!

Switchboard is building a decentralized, community-managed Oracle network on top of Solana. With a strong backing behind giant Alameda Research, Switchboard is certainly a very potential name.

Wum.bo is a platform that brings creator coins directly into the networks (twitter, twitch, reddit..vv) where creators interact with their fans.
Price chosen by the community
Boring Protocol is a decentralized VPN based on Solana.
Once all projects were submitted, the Solana community voted for their favorite projects. Prizes Community Choice Awards up to $ 5,000 USDC-SPL.
Project sponsored award
Several existing projects in the Solana ecosystem have selected hackathon submissions that best integrate with each project’s specific technology.
The best known are Slope with a purse of $ 25,000 and Cyclos with $ 12,000. Plus, projects like Francium, Kurobi, Switchboard, and Solaris are all the same value of $ 3,000.
The result is extremely successful, especially for the award-winning projects that are still in their infancy but have shown their own potential. Not limited to just a few frameworks, but includes DeFi, NFT, Web3 and more.
However, with the positive results voted by seasoned developers from Solana and other reputable organizations, if projects continue to take advantage of development opportunities during this time, they will surely generate money for a bigger leap into the future.
