Frequently Asked Questions

Does MarketMake cost money?

No! MarketMake is 100% free, for both hackers and summit attendees. However, we do require hackers to "stake" a small amount of cryptocurrency to claim their spot. This stake is 100% returned as long as you participate in the hackathon and submit something - even a partial project - at the end.

I'm totally new to Defi and/or Ethereum - can I join the hackathon?

Absolutely! Our events are open to both beginners and veterans. We have special content & support available for hackers who are new to Ethereum.

How many people can be on a hackathon team?

You can form teams of up to 5 people. There are no restrictions for team members, so you can team up with hackers of any country or experience level!

Is there a code of conduct?

Yes! Our core ethos has been to make it easy for anyone to dream big, and that means creating a positive environment where people can be themselves. To that end, we've developed a Code of Conduct.
