Coreum’s Engagement in the Permissionless Hackathon and Wave 3 Grant Program

2 min readSep 25


The Coreum Development Foundation has once again made its mark by actively participating in the recent Permissionless Hackathon. Hosted by Blockworks and Bankless on September 9–10th in Austin, Texas, the event saw a myriad of innovative projects, with Coreum standing out for its commitment to fostering innovation in the decentralized space through innovative programmable asset technology.

The conference began with a compelling keynote by Erik Voorhees, where he delved into the fundamental principles of a “permissionless” economy, a system in which the necessity for central gatekeepers is eradicated, creating an environment that promotes inclusivity and democratizes economic opportunities. Coreum aligns with this vision while building the infrastructure to act as an epicentre for programmable digital assets, where decentralization and empowerment are at the forefront.

Being on the grounds of an IRL hackathon offered the Coreum team an opportunity to engage directly with builders; both developers and business leaders, to share the latest insights about Coreum’s tooling and compliant frameworks that allow business models to be built on-chain effectively.
