Serum x Wormhole Hackathon Winners Release

Serum and Wormhole today announce the winning projects of the Convergence hackathon.

The Convergence hackathon saw over 780 registered participants, and 97 submitted projects.

The participants featured a diverse set of developers from web2, traditional finance and DeFi, and web3 backgrounds. These projects showcase a wide variety of innovative use cases in cross-chain operability in DeFi and display exceptional creativity in how well each project is improving the DeFi ecosystem.

Of the 97 projects received, some projects focus on infrastructure, some projects build user-friendly front ends to help onboard more users to crypto. Some blend the strength of different blockchains (Terra & Solana) to bring unique value to users. Additionally, there were projects focused on bringing together the DeFi, NFT and gaming ecosystem.

“As long-time supporters and advocates of the Serum and Solana ecosystems, we were thoroughly impressed with the creativity and vision of projects at Convergence Hackathon,” said Kyle Samani, Managing Partner of Multicoin Capital and one of the judges. “Composable primitives like Serum and Wormhole are clearly accelerating innovation and leveling up the playing field in DeFi. We are excited to work with the new builders coming into the space and to see what some of the brightest minds in finance and technology can bring to crypto.”
