Build the next generation of dApps on Universal Profiles

Along with the launch of LUKSO’s L16 Public Testnet, we announced a 6-week virtual hackathon – the first LUKSO Build UP! that took place July 20th  - August 31st 2022.

Developers came together to build the next generation of dApps on Universal Profiles by exploring and utilizing LUKSO Standard Proposals (LSPs) as well as our developer tools and libraries.

With over 500 signups, 74 project submissions, and 10 hours of live educational content created for participants, the hackathon empowered both novice and experienced developers to shape the New Creative Economy and change blockchain for everyone.
