The Indian Ocean Hackathon:

The Overall Hackathon quest format is of 5-fold as shown below.
Writer quests (entries closed) : We recognize that writers, deep-divers are one of the most required skill sets in Web3. The ability to tap into new projects and understanding fundamentals of emerging projects are paramount and we couldn't think of a better way to reward experienced Web3 writers to get their hands on with skilled writing quests.
Designer bounty UI/UX Review: Great design in Web3 is not just necessary, but a mandatory skill to hack in Web3. We recognize the same and welcome all design hackers to help us with valuable insights that would help Ocean DAO & the Indian Ocean Program to a great extent.
Indian Ocean Ambassador Challenge (entries closed) : This is an exclusive program reserved for the first 25 Ocean Ambassadors who get onboarded through our challenge; details of which is mentioned below on our LinkTree. The prize pool related to the challenge will be part of the Ambassador Challengeโ€‹
Ensure that you are part of our Discord to receive further updates on Quests related to the challenge.
Core-Tech Developer Bounty (entries closed) : Contributing to the Core-tech of OceanDAO can be very rewarding, as successful projects and integrations with the core-tech stack of OceanProtocol are well funded by the OceanDAO through cyclical funding. If proof of successful core-tech integration can shown in a plan of action, you can have the chance of winning 30% additional bounty reward. The judging panel will involve atleast 1 member from the Core-Tech Working Group.
Media Super Power Bounty: The Indian Ascendancy thesis as put forth by BalajiS, is India emerging as a media superpower as a multiplier of Web3 technology whereby we incentivize projects of social good by amplified Media content that educates the people on the benefits of Web3 sustainability. We would provide a special bounty that evangelizes the ethos of good media production during the Hackathon.
