Upland holds the 2023 Hackathon to show off the future of metaverse super apps

Upland, the metaverse super app mapped to the real world, is collaborating with the EOS Network Foundation, a community-led, not-for-profit organization that coordinates public-goods funding and support to grow the EOS Network, to launch its second hackathon, inviting web2 and web3 developers to create new games and experiences using Upland assets.

As the only metaverse mapped to the real world, developers can use Upland’s geo-specific context and assets like FIFA Women’s World Cup Australia and New Zealand 2023TM Legits to create experiences for the largest web3 community.

What is this year’s Upland Hackathon’s goal?

The goal of this year’s Upland Hackathon is to give developers the tools they need to make unique, immersive, community-driven experiences that get more people involved in the metaverse. Participants can join one of three tracks: the Design Track, the FIFA Women’s World Cup 2023 (FWWC23) Track, or the Metaverse Innovation Track. The best ideas will get money prizes and the chance to join Upland’s incubator after the hackathon.

Upland is one of the most well-known and fastest-growing blockchain-based metaverses. Upland is the Earth’s metaverse. It is made up of dozens of global cities that have been mapped to the real world and can be accessed through the Web, iOS, and Android.

This year’s Hackathon will have three different tracks that all have something to do with Upland’s ecosystem, community, and economy.

Developers, designers, artists, gamers, and people who are interested in blockchain will be given the tools, support, and inspiration they need to make their Web3 game ideas come to life. Participants will be able to put themselves on the virtual map of Upland by using its simple Rest APIs.

The 2023 Metaverse Super App Hackathon will be judged by four people from Upland, FIFA, and the EOS Network Foundation. Each project will be judged based on its pitch, prototype, use of Upland’s 3rd-party development tools, team composition and diversity, business viability, and how well it meets the Hackathon mission.

The FIFA Women’s World Cup Track builds on Upland’s role as FIFA’s official metaverse partner and gives developers a unique chance to build games and experiences in Upland that use FIFA NFTs and Upland’s third-party SDK.

Developers are asked to use FIFA Legits and Upland assets to make unique games or gamified experiences. The winning project will be shown at the FIFA World Cup Village in Upland.

In the competitive Design Track, Upland is asking creators to make a 3D asset that will be the trophy for the World of Football eSports tournament.

Lastly, the Innovation Track asks developers to submit Web3 games or experiences that are focused on the community and bring people together to play, communicate and share value.

Both the winner of the Grand Prize and the winner of the Runner-up Prize will be asked to join Upland’s incubator after the hackathon.
