We are excited to contribute to the growth of the ecosystem.
What’s new about what you’re making? What substitutes do people resort to because it doesn’t exist yet (or they don’t know about it)?:
This year’s hackathon will be joined by industry leading builders/mentors like Kevin Owocki, founder of Gitcoin, Solange Gueiros from Chainlink, CEOs of the largest Miami-based web3 companies like Quicknode, Transak and Tatum.
These exceptional mentors are going to be guiding and helping our hackers build up innovative projects.

The event will impact developers since we are planning to do workshops to explain basic and advanced subgraphs topics.
How will you measure success?:
We are expecting around 400/500 developers to be hacking who will be exposed to The Graph Protocol and will be encouraged to implement it in their projects.
What milestones will you achieve in the coming weeks/months, with or without the grant?:
