    The goal of the Build-a-Thon is to support builders in expanding cross-chain ecosystems in Web3

    Participants should be focused on creating cross-chain applications that use Axelar Network for its secure interchain infrastructure. By building for a multichain world, builders can push boundaries and find solutions that aren't apparent when building for a single chain. Don't be afraid to get creative in building your “Web3 Super App”!

    A Web Super App should:

    • Be built with the end-user in mind
    • Be permissionless and interoperable
    • Lets users access anything in Web3 without leaving the app or signing transactions on any other chain

    What to Submit:

    • Link to your public GitHub repository
    • Link to your externally facing web-app
    • Video breakdown of your app (max 5-minutes)
    • Optional: future roadmap

    Judging Criteria

    How to Win the Grand Prize!

    Development Expertise

    Displays extraordinary technical know-how. We are looking for teams tackling challenging problems that are present when operating in a cross-chain world.

    UI / UX

    Building with the user in mind, the team displays a strong knack for design and the user experience. The app is easy to use and the user is guided through it intuitively. Marketing clearly depicts the value proposition of a one-click user experience.


    Bringing users into a cross-chain world requires creativity and originality. We will value unique solutions to old problems and those that re-write the crypto narrative altogether.

    Total Addressable Market

    We hope builders create tools people want to use. High marks in this category will be given to teams that are building apps that will bring new people into the space.
