The Aptos Foundation is excited to host the first major global Aptos hackathon in Seoul!

The Aptos Seoul Hack will be in-person only with participation by core Aptos engineers. There will be three days of hacking and demos with a party to cap the week on Friday evening! Themes include Gaming, NFTs, DeFi, Tooling and Infrastructure with prizes for winning teams in each track.


Who can attend Aptos Seoul Hack?

Anyone interested in learning more about or building on top of Move and Aptos is encouraged to attend! There will be core members of the Aptos technical team in attendance that speak both English and Korean.

How long is the hackathon?

The hackathon will begin on February 1st at 9:00AM and will complete in the afternoon of February 3rd.

What should I expect if I attend?

There will be programming around Move on Aptos, how to get started on Aptos, and presentations from key partners. You will have plenty of time to work on your projects, meet new people, and seek advice and support from core Aptos engineers. We will supply food, beverages, entertainment, prizes and swag!

When is the registration deadline?

The deadline to register will be January 26th. We recommend registering as soon as possible as space is limited and will be first come first served. Please make sure all your team members register before the deadline so we can get a better participant count for logistical purposes.

What do I need to bring?

Please bring your ID so our team can check you in during the event. You will also need to bring your own computer. We will supply the power, monitors and WiFi!

What if I’m a student and need help with sponsorship to travel to the event from outside Korea?

We have a program where Aptos will sponsor a number of international students to attend the hackathon with round-trip flights and a hotel stay. Please apply here:

What if I don’t have a team? How big can teams be?

You'll have some time before and at the beginning of the event to meet other participants who are looking for a team as well. We recommend that you team up with others and make new friends.

What are the details of the office hours?

The Aptos core development team will have limited slots available for teams to book time with to discuss their projects and ask questions about Move and Aptos. These will take place on February 1st and 2nd – if you’re interested in booking a slot, please reflect that in your registration.

What are the details of the afterparty on Friday?

Aptos will host an afterparty in the evening of Friday, February 3rd at a special location in Gangnam. All participants and partners are welcome to join us! We will share the details upon registration.
