Hackathon Kick-off: Build Ethereum DApp on Metis.io to share in $1M prize pool

Join the opening ceremony for https://hackathon.metis.io: Build Ethereum DApps on Metis Layer 2 for a chance to win a share of $1M in the $METIS prize pool!

METIS is an Ethereum Layer 2 Optimistic Rollup Platform for Web 3.0 Economy with its own $METIS utility token. (https://metis.io)

Build or port existing Ethereum DApp on Metis Layer 2 and use the following advantages while staying on Ethereum:
- Low gas fees (as low as cents as opposed to tens of dollars on Ethereum)
- Fast transactions (seconds as opposed to few minutes on Ethereum)
- Complete compatibility with Ethereum (EVM) - if you are already on Ethereum you can port to Metis for all the above advantages at no cost and in no time
- Create your own token (tokenize) without coding and more...

Building Dapps on Metis Layer 2 is exactly like building DApps on Ethereum (see the https://youtu.be/91SdU84D9KM for instructions), so start building new or porting existing DApps and submit your project into one of the following tracks:

- Decentralized Finance (DeFi) Projects Track
- Popular Web2 Integrations Track
- Popular Web3 Integrations Track
- Decentralized Gaming Track
- Digital Art/Collectibles Track
- United Nations Sustainable Goals Track
