Projects Completed

A total of 10 projects built on Golem Network were submitted in only 2 and a half days! 👏
You can find all of them here: https://degen-hack.devpost.com/project-gallery

Winners

Bounty #1 – Leverage the computing power of Golem Network using the JS SDK to solve any problem you can ever imagine:


🥇 SimGolem: SimGolem harnesses the power of the Golem network's parallel computation capabilities to run multiple simulations of ecosystem populations simultaneously. They won the top prize of $4,000! 🌟https://devpost.com/software/simgolem

🥈 Depsai: Their solution enables deployments to Golem Network through the web interface. This project won the $2,000 prize! 🌠https://devpost.com/software/depsai

Bounty #2 – Improve our development tooling or provide additional adoption paths:

🥇 Golem Nation: This project integrates Golem Network with n8n, enabling users to easily access computing power for automation tasks through pre-created images, including processing video, audio and images, with simplified setup via a Docker-based environment and specialized workflow blocks. They claimed the first-place prize of $4,000! 🛠️https://devpost.com/software/golem-nation

🥈 Golem Pipeline: A library for interacting with golem-sdk with an additional layer of abstraction - pipelines. They received the $2,000 prize! 🚀 https://devpost.com/software/golem-pipelines

Special Highlights

- AdressForge: A standout project that caught our attention. It utilizes a fork of createXcrunch ( https://github.com/HrikB/createXcrunch ) to harness the power of a GPU for efficiently generating specific Ethereum addresses. 🌟https://devpost.com/software/adressforge

- Golem x Aleph Zero Venture - Tower by Frank: A reward for Frank Dierolf’s tireless efforts to merge Golem and Aleph Zero. Frank laid the foundations for the popular tower defence game in the Web3 world. https://devpost.com/software/tower

We’ll be sharing details about the next steps very soon. Stay tuned! 🌐✨
