Crypto 4 Your Thoughts Hackathon - Free, $25k prizes


Crypto 4 Your Thoughts (C4YT) is a hackathon focused on fostering a strong and diverse open source community working to create accessible tools within the cryptocurrency ecosystem. Taking place at Impact Hub San Francisco on April 6-8, 2018, it will bring together a community of 300 of the most talented crypto engineers in San Francisco!


Who should join:

We are looking for enthusiastic and talented engineers who care about crypto to join us for 36 hours of hacking and a chance to win over $25,000 in prizes! Extensive experience in the blockchain space will give you a hand up, though there will be documentation and help desks available for those who are just starting to get their feet wet. There will be a heavy focus on JavaScript and NodeJS, so if this is your forte, your talents will be in high demand (with the chance to be well rewarded). So if you're looking to work on some interesting new projects in the crypto space, demonstrate your coding skills, want an opportunity to meet potential employers, and wouldn’t mind being rewarded with some incredible prizes, including $10,000 in the cryptocurrency of your choice*, sign up now!


We have over $25,000 available in prizes (including a $10,000 cash prize in cryptocurrency of your choice)! New prizes are added daily so stay tuned as our prize pot keeps growing!



We're super excited to have a team of fantastic mentors on board for C4YT. They will spend 48 hours working closely with the hackathon participants and will be the ones to make the final call on who gets the prize! (We should really say "prizes" cause there are many of them!)

  • Christopher Jeffrey (JJ), CTO at and Lead Developer at Bcoin. Breaker of Bitcoin and Destroyer of RAM. Keeper of the Cryptowalk. ASIC Boost Grand Master & Jihan's Final Boss.

  • Jae Kwon, Lead developer/CEO/co-founder of the Cosmos project.

Stay tuned as we will be announcing more judges soon!
