This season of the HackaTRON has been fun the competition was stiff! There were 1,100+ participants who formed 272 teams that submitted projects in one of six tracks: Web3, DeFi, NFT, GameFi, Ecosystem and Tron Academy.
Once again, we would like to thank all who have participated in this hackathon, whether you are a developer, designer, voter, or one of our forum members. We thank you for making HackaTRON S3 a success
We would also like to thank our judges from across the industry and among universities who took the time out of their busy schedules to go over 80+ down-selected submissions.
Season 3 has been a success with more community topic engagement on this forum, more participants from the Ethereum ecosystem and amazing project submissions from University students.
We have also tried our best to make the community voting as fair as possible by removing ineligible projects and fraudulent votes. Our moderation and hackathon forensic team would like to give those members that help report suspicious projects and votes a big thumbs up for the great teamwork! A lot of community members on the forum also appreciated the effort that we have put in so we will make sure to carry on with the positive impact we had on HackaTRON season 4. We already have a few revisions in the pipeline as some active members have been suggesting some significant improvements on our hackathon community topics thread that we will be considering!
We encourage everyone to please leave feedback about your experience with TRON Grand Hackathon 2022 Season 3, whether it be good or bad. We will read every single community response and take it into account to further improve for season 4. Thank you Tronics!
And now, the moment that you have been waiting for… …
Let’s start with our judges-selected winners.
These projects have been judged by multiple criteria such as their originality & creativity, technicality & design, business model & feasibility, usability, practicality and their contribution to the crypto ecosystem.
Devpost and TRON DAO won’t be releasing any judging or scoring details as the judges scored projects in confidence. Please note that the judges scored each eligible project using the equally weighted criteria mentioned above and the results are according to the sole and absolute discretion of the judges. Projects that scored the highest per category by the judges are selected as the winners.
Without further ado, the hackathon winners for each category are:
And, we also have our Forum hackathon winners, selected by you humans! (and not by you bots !)
Congratulations to our community-selected winners!
These projects have been selected by community members on the TRON DAO Forum. Please note that we have already reached out to project teams that were disqualified or had a ranking update and all teams are clear on the decision made.

Once again, congrats to all Hackathon winners and runner-ups, and also participants of the TRON Grand Hackathon. For Ecosystem winners, we hope to see you continue porting your projects to TRON/BTTC. For Academy winners, we hope you had a great time learning about the TRON blockchain and hope to see more exciting projects from you!
We would also like to thank all forum community contributors that shared their opinions and stood by our side to help keep the forum an organized and civilized space for all of us here!
An insane amount of work went into building JustPush (Web3 - 4th place).
Countless hours were spent in front of the laptop in all sorts of cafes and Starbucks.
I was a bit bummed not to see the project not win a place in community voting. Then again, this is a completely new project on Tron with no community yet.
The focus was to build a kickass project that can improve the Tron ecosystem. And I am glad the devpost judges see the effort that went into building this.
The next step is building a community, and bringing other projects in the ecosystem to use the JustPush protocol to deliver notifications. That’s coming.
Thank you admin for organizing the hackathon. Thank you, judges. And last but not least, thanks TRON community.
For those who weren’t selected, I want to share some words from someone from the TRON DAO team who has gone through the same thing and I think these are important words to hear at this particular instance:
" I write these words as I know what it’s like for your idea to not be selected.
You might be feeling an angst of misunderstanding between yourself and the world.
“Why didn’t I win?”
That’s a hard question with soft answers.
Venture is one of the hardest games in human existence.
You worked hard and committed to this effort and there is honor in that.
Perhaps throughout time you ideate this idea into something spectacular.
To conclude in positive words, keep on evolving, hacking, and learning."
Big congratulations to all winners.
Thank you @admin.hackathon for the community contributor award. Big thanks go to the community for their support. All those who interacted with my posts and those who found my posts has helpful. This is just the beginning. I am always here for you. STRONgerTogether… #tron
Respected sir, I would like to know something, our project assuredocs in ecosystem track got healthy number of likes and good response from both the DAO and the devpost voting, but we didn’t win any prize, so I am little bummed as to what lacks and how the projects get judged in order to prepare for further DAO based hackathon , can someone help me out here
On behalf of USTX Team I want to thank the organizers and the wonderful community that showed the appreciation for our product giving us another 1st Place!
Congrats to all the winners and the participants that will have a chance next time.
Let’s keep building.
Congrats to all HackaTRON S3 winners. We would like to hear from the winners that what they are planning to do for the next month or two so the community can learn about what’s coming up and what to expect. Let’s have some mini thank you speech
For participants that did not make it, don’t worry, we still have S4. It’s important to keep the community engaged in your project so you can start attracting more community members as supporters for your projects!
Lazara here, a real honor to get the NFT prize! I worked very hard to get this project off the ground, and to be rewarded just feels awesome.
Next order of business: Integrate DALL-E 2 (A diffusion model from OpenAI), last I checked they didn’t have an API but hopefully they have now. Otherwise I will try to throw something together by myself with something like Selenium
