EDCON 2024 Hacker Houses: A Unified Effort

Our mission is to contribute to the development of the builder ecosystem, focusing on Autonomous World (AW) building fully onchain games, social applications built with Zero-Knowledge (Zk) through WaveHack, and the intersection of creativity and technology, emphasizing public goods through the EDCON Creator + Hacker House.

Innovation should be collaborative and interoperable, and we are proud to host hacker houses that align with this vision, each bringing a unique focus to the broader themes of EDCON!

UNIFIED VISION

Separate Houses, Joint Programming:
Run separate houses but offer joint programming from July 15 leading up to EDCON, culminating in a stage where everyone can present their innovations.

Diverse Focus Areas
From social applications leveraging Zero-Knowledge technology to the creative synergy between art and public goods, our hacker houses cover a wide spectrum of the Web3 ecosystem.
Spotlight Builders & Good Projects

HACKER HOUSES OVERVIEW

WaveHack x ZkSync
WaveHack is dedicated to exploring the potential of Zero-Knowledge (Zk) technology in building social applications. Participants will tackle three exciting challenges:

1. $30,000 Build a Game or SocialFi application
2. $15,000 Build an application using zkSync’s Native Account Abstraction
3. $5,000 Write a Builder Tutorial or Technical Content
WaveHack aims to accelerate the development and adoption of Zk technology, providing builders with the resources and mentorship needed to create impactful applications.
AW Tokyo × Komorebi’s Hacker House
Focus: Fully Onchain Games

AW Tokyo is a hacker house focusing on the development of fully onchain games. This initiative aims to provide a "turning point" for young individuals interested in crypto and for those who have already released products in the AW/FOCG domain. By hosting this hacker house, we aim to help builders based in Asia release even better products, fostering innovation in the AW space.
EDCON CREATOR + HACKER HOUSE
