Switchboard x Riptide Prizes Announcement

· 2 min read

Switchboard is sponsoring the Solana Riptide hackathon with $30k in prizes for the top 3 teams that best integrate Switchboard. Less than a year ago Switchboard was founded after a hackathon submission and we are grateful for the opportunity to pay it back to the developer community.

Switchboard v2 allows for permission-less feeds — bring any public data point on-chain using a network of independent oracle operators. Switchboard recently released V2 of its Verifiable Randomness Function (VRF), which allows developers to request a verifiable random value, with proof verification entirely on-chain. Verifiable randomness brings new use cases to Solana and allows developers to provide open, verifiable lotteries in their on-chain programs.


Switchboard will be offering the following prizes:

First Prize ($15k): Best integration of Switchboard v2

Second Prize ($10k): Best use of Switchboard VRF

Third Prize ($5k): Most interesting integration of Switchboard
