The XRP Ledger - XRPL - is a decentralized, permissionless, open-source blockchain that anybody can contribute to, develop on, and transact on. The XRP Ledger was the first blockchain to allow the tokenization of assets. Whether that is fungible or non-fungible, the XRP Ledger's built in tokenization functionality and built in decentralized exchange (DEX) are ideal for developers to add the decentralized management of tokens to their applications.

This hackathon is open to all developers to build functional NFTs on the XRP Ledger. You can use any of the SDKs and APIs for the XRP Ledger, both in production and on devnet. 


Example projects can range across all components of NFTs, including, but not limited to marketplaces, tooling, explorers, wallets, bridges, and more. We welcome and encourage your creativity!


Pre-register today, and in the meantime, check out the NFToken Tester Tutorial to try out building NFTs on the NFT-Devnet.


What to Build: Build Functional NFTs that span across a full range of use cases.
