BSV Hackathon

Discover the Future by Building on Blockchain

Join us on our mission to build Bitcoin SV-powered solutions that address today and the future’s real-world challenges. Sign up now and we’ll let you know about our next Bitcoin SV Hackathon.


We seek builders and thinkers who truly want to make a change in how individuals and businesses connect. Unleashed to act as one global public data ledger, the Bitcoin SV blockchain brings together a flourishing global community that harnesses ideas and creativity to tackle the biggest challenges.

Who Can Join

Bitcoin SV Developers

The best way to know if you’re project is a viable business, is through outside validation. Reach the finals of the BSV Hackathon to present in front of potential investors.

Ethereum Developers

While Ethereum is the popular choice among developers, the platform doesn’t scale big enough for enterprise-grade solutions. Try leveraging Bitcoin SV’s power and build your app on a massively scalable blockchain, with a stable platform of world-class security, supported by a global community of experienced, knowledgeable developers, who are willing to guide you.

Blockchain Developers

The growth trajectory and roadmap for BSV mean that there will be ongoing demand for advanced Bitcoin development skills across a variety of industries. Hosting the Bitcoin SV Hackathon is our way of encouraging you to try BSV on for size and learn how its unique capabilities can be used to power a new generation of innovative blockchain-based applications and services.

Non-blockchain Developers

The Bitcoin SV Hackathon gives you an environment where it’s free to join, allows you to gain blockchain dev experience and fully unleash your creativity, and gives you the chance to win big Bitcoin SV prizes.

Flex Your Coding Skills and Build on Bitcoin SV

Developers and tech enthusiasts are excited with the potential of the Bitcoin blockchain, the new form of immutable data ledger that is poised to ignite creative applications that use micropayments, and enable businesses to use Bitcoin for data applications which require enterprise-level volume.

Blockchain is being unleashed thanks to forward-thinking individuals and businesses.

Already, blockchain-based networks are being implemented in several use cases that support technical uniformity, eliminate data silos, allow interoperability across industry segments and geographies, and enable great efficiencies.

How will this foundational technology be used next and what types of applications will be developed for it? That’s where you come in!

Bitcoin SV Hackathon 2020 Highlights

Past Hackathons

1st BitcoinSV Hackathon
May 2019

The first-ever BSV Hackathon took place over the weekend of 4 - 5 May 2019, with a strict 48-hour coding period, and the Hackathon Finale was presented live on stage at the CoinGeek Toronto Conference on 30 May 2019.

2nd Bitcoin SV Hackathon
August 2019

The second BSV Hackathon took place on the weekend of August 17-19, with entrants tasked with designing inventive ways for users to use Bitcoin SV to earn value.

3rd Bitcoin SV Hackathon
October 2020

We saw amazing stuff from the first two hackathons, which were in the 48-hour format, but this time we had an 8-week long coding round and definitely saw developers put a lot more thought into what they wanted to build before they started to build.

Upcoming Hackathons

Coming Soon 2021
February 2021

We’re excited to announce our next virtual global hackathon, where your ideas become enterprise-level applications at super-speed.
