Build your dream DEX!

The XinFin XDC Network is back with another hackathon to help you build and launch your next blockchain project. 

XinFin XDC Network is an enterprise-ready, open-source, hybrid blockchain for global trade and finance. 

XDC Network supports all EVM-compatible smart-contracts, protocols, and atomic cross-chain token transfers, which means what runs on Ethereum will run on XDC Network. The XDC Network is compatible with ISO 20022 financial messaging standards and is ready to power your blockchain use case.

In this hackathon, you’ll learn the capabilities of XDC and build your dream Dex or DeFi project on the XDC Network. Expand your knowledge of blockchain, get a shot at some great prizes and grow your Project with the XDC Community. The XDC community would love to try out your project so share it on Twitter with #BuilditOnXDC#XDC, and #WeAreXDC.
