CircusCircusCircus REGISTRATION CLOSED CircusCircusCircus

Hey there! 

Welcome to the very first hackathon organized by the Xircus Web3 Protocol team and Draper Startup House (DSH). 

This fun, in-person, 2-day event will be held in DSH venue in Manila, Philippines, on April 1 and April 2, 2023.

We invite you to join us and explore our Web3 dApp builder tool, learn about it, test it out, and deploy some very cool solutions. 

Don’t be afraid if you aren’t much of a tech person and if you don’t know how to code - you are exactly the right participant for this! 

Our Xircus Web3 tool is built for that - to let the no-coders and low coders explore the exciting world and possibilities of Web3. Drag and drop and bring your long awaited idea to life - yes, it’s easy as that.


So, don’t think too much about it and hesitate - register today, and we see you on April 1st!


Oh, and did we mention we have some cool prizes too? ;) 


p.s. Not familiar with what we do? Check it out here. Our social media channels are available at the bottom too.



Please note that you can join as a no-coder or a low-coder, and you can hack as a team or as an individual.

There are some things we would like to clarify:


Registration Deadline

  • To be able to participate in this hackathon, you have to register via Devpost until March 29, 2023 at 11:59pm PHT.


Attendance Confirmation - UPDATED

  • Because this is an in-person event, you will have to confirm your attendance, which you will be able to ̶f̶r̶o̶m̶ ̶M̶a̶r̶c̶h̶ ̶3̶0̶ ̶-̶ ̶3̶1̶,̶ ̶2̶0̶2̶3̶ via a form ̶w̶e̶ ̶w̶i̶l̶l̶ ̶p̶r̶o̶v̶i̶d̶e̶ ̶i̶n̶ ̶o̶u̶r̶ ̶o̶f̶f̶i̶c̶i̶a̶l̶ ̶h̶a̶c̶k̶a̶t̶h̶o̶n̶ ̶T̶e̶l̶e̶g̶r̶a̶m̶ ̶g̶r̶o̶u̶p̶.

  • The 1st round to confirm the attendance will be sent via email on March 24, 2023 to the first 80 participants.
  • The 2nd round to confirm the attendance will be sent via email ̶o̶n̶ ̶M̶a̶r̶c̶h̶ ̶3̶0̶,̶ ̶2̶0̶2̶3̶ on March 27, 2023 to all the others registered by that day (>80 to total num).
  • The final round to confirm the attendance will be sent via email on March 30, 2023 to everyone once again, and also shared in the official hackathon Telegram group - if there will be free spots available.


Limited Number of Participants

  • We are limited by the venue capacity, and therefore we can host only 80 participants.

  • However - you can still register if the number goes above, and you will automatically be on the waiting list.
  • If there will be extra spots - we will inform you immediately, and we'll be happy to see you there.



  • Because this is an in-person event, we will be accepting only those projects submitted by the participants who joined us in-person for those 2 days in DSH venue in Manila.



  • We assume you have enough skills and understanding to do something before the actual in-person event on April 1, 2023.

  • So, if you have an idea you would like to hack, you can start doing it right away.



  • We assume you have an idea, but not the tech skills needed to do it yourself.

  • However, if you have an idea you would like to hack, you can also start right away with our XircusSkins, Modules and pagebuilder.

  • It is also possible to start your hackathon journey on-site, on April 1, 2023.

  • There you can join an existing team (if there are spots available), or we will create a new team.



  • We have limited the number of team members to 4.
  • This is solely because this is an in-person event, and we are limited by the venue capacity.
  • All team members should be registered via Devpost.
