The highly anticipated ETHIndia Online hackathon series, EthOdyssey, is right around the corner! We’re proud to be accelerating the Ethereum ecosystem’s growth by supporting this hackathon with our longstanding hackathon partner Devfolio.

With 5000$ in miMatic (the first Polygon-native stablecoin) for winners, EthOdyssey is going to get a lot more exciting for developers!

The month-long virtual hackathon is taking place entirely online from July 2 — August 1, 2021, and is bringing together developers from across the globe to help build decentralized future.

Polygon Bounty Track Details )($1000 per track )

Polygon Ecosystem Tooling

  • Build an RPC monitoring tool to monitor the health status (probably with a health bar) of all the existing public Polygon RPC endpoints for both mainnet and testnet. Polygon RPCs:
  • A bridge to transfer funds from Flow Blockchain to Polygon and vice versa.
  • Yield chaser — Enter the type of asset (stables, Eth, Matic, anything) and setup EPNS for notifications to send you a message with the best new farms with assets you are interested in.

Educational Videos on Polygon($250 per video)

Create an interactive explainer video for the following topics:

  • Transfer of assets from Ethereum to Polygon and back using MetaMask.
  • Implementing Chainlink Oracles on Polygon Dapp
  • Building and implementing a subgraph using TheGraph on Polygon.
  • Explainer videos to verify smart contracts using PolygonScan Api.


Aim of the Project: To build a game/NFT based project that utilizes Polygon’s speed for a seamless gameplay experience.


Let your imagination run wild while building a Defi DApp that takes advantage of Polygon’s Network’s speed and Scalability.

Some ideas:

  • Tokenized Debt Agreements
  • Degenscore on Polygon
  • Lossless Arbitrage
  • A truly great donation app built on top of @0xPolygon using Polygon native stablecoins like miMATIC, like Stripe Payment Links but for giving tokens to your favorite creator, project, or meme lord.

Open Track

Aim of the project: Use your imagination and feel free to build any DApp that excites you! The sky’s the limit.
