Cardano Blockchain announces its first-ever hackathon in India, “Cardano Codex”, to tap Web3 talent.
New Delhi, India, (30, Nov 2023) — Cardano Blockchain Hackathon India, “Cardano Codex 2023“, invites vibrant Web 3.0 developers from India to participate. The three founding entities of the Cardano blockchain, namely Cardano Foundation, EMURGO, and Input Output Global, support this initiative.

The launch of this hackathon aims at onboarding the next 1000 Web3 developers from India by 2024. This initiative is set to redefine the landscape of blockchain development in the country, which is also supported by regional DAOs and developer communities, including Web3 Jaipur, Hyderabad DAO, Web3 Chennai, Kerala DAO, and Web3 Panjab.
The Cardano Codex 2023 Hackathon kicks off with a series of technical and non-technical virtual workshops, all of which will be live-streamed on Cardano’s social media application, Cardano Spot. Developers and project participants are in for a treat as they stand a chance to receive exclusive mentorship from the Hackathon’s flag bearer, Nucast Labs, and Marlowe Devs. Moreover, participants will have access to grant opportunities from the Project Catalyst Fund 12.
What sets Cardano Codex apart is the exclusive training with top mentors and rewards for the winners. The successful developers will receive 10,000 ADA and will also get valuable assistance for their Minimum Viable Products (MVPs). On top of that, hands-on reviews for Fund 12 proposals’ submission for a staggering 50,000,000 ADA (equivalent to USD 19,000,000) grants. As a surprise raffle, two lucky audience members will have the opportunity to win a PlayStation 5 and a 3070 Ti gaming graphic card, respectively.
