Welcome to the Stylus Blitz Hackathon

3 min readJun 17, 2024


Stylus is live on Arbitrum Sepolia! And we can’t wait for builders to experiment.

We’re thrilled to announce the Stylus Blitz Hackathon to inspire developers to leverage the power of Stylus contracts. With Stylus set to go live on Arbitrum Sepolia on June 17, 2024, this is your chance to build something powered by the MultiVM.

$15,000 for Stylus builders on Arbitrum Sepolia

We’re offering a total grant pool of $15,000, which will be distributed among 10 projects. Each selected project will receive a grant of $1,500. By offering a larger number of grants, we aim to encourage a wide breadth of developers and teams to participate.

Why Stylus?

Stylus is a game-changer for the EVM, empowering developers in the Arbitrum ecosystem to write smart contracts in a variety of languages, including Rust. By leveraging the power of the WASM VM, Stylus contracts offer unparalleled efficiency, with 10x cheaper compute and memory compared to traditional EVM contracts.

Moreover, Stylus contracts are fully interoperable with the EVM, meaning you can seamlessly integrate them with existing Arbitrum protocols.

Who is the Stylus Blitz for?

The Stylus Blitz is open to developers from all backgrounds who are eager to explore the possibilities of Stylus contracts. Whether you’re interested in experimenting with Stylus-specific use cases that go beyond the capabilities of Solidity, or you’re looking to migrate your existing Solidity protocols to Stylus to save on gas costs, the Blitz is for you.

We encourage developers with a passion for innovation and a desire to push the boundaries of smart contract development to participate. If that sounds like you, join us in the Stylus Blitz Hackathon and be part of the revolution in smart contract development.

Blitz Timeline

The Stylus Blitz Hackathon will run for approximately two weeks, starting from when Stylus hits Arbitrum Sepolia on June 17, 2024, until June 30, 2024. During this time, you’ll have the opportunity to build and deploy your own Stylus contracts.

The project submission window will open for the last week of the build timeline, from June 24, 2024, to June 30, 2024. Our judges will then have one week, from July 1, 2024, to July 7, 2024, to evaluate the submissions and select the grant recipients.


The project submission window will open for the last week of the event. During this time, participants will have the opportunity to submit their Stylus projects for review. The judges will then have an additional week to carefully review the submissions and select the 10 projects that will receive the grants.

You can submit your project submissions here.

Eligibility Requirements
