The Internet Computer’s global Supernova Hackathon saw nearly 4,000 developers and entrepreneurs building dapps, services, and products using the world’s most advanced general-purpose blockchain. Hundreds of outstanding IC-based projects competed for up to $6 million in prizes, grants, and seed investments across tracks that include SocialFi, GameFi, Metaverse and NFTs, Asynchronous DeFi, Public Good/Social Impact, and Blue Sky. See the list of winners here.
Now that the community has spoken, it is time to recognize Cosmicrafts as the winner of the Supernova Community Choice Award! This was decided by a community vote logged over the course of 10 days via the Web3 social platform DSCVR, with Cosmicrafts receiving 5,782 votes out of a total of 14,664.
Cosmicrafts is a futuristic real-time strategy game where you command your own fleet by sending NFTs into a battleground to destroy your opponent’s base. There is no need for users to hold crypto tokens to get started. Players can earn NFTs and tokens through missions, events, and different game modes by playing against AI or other players through the platform’s cross-chain multiplayer feature.
Other projects that garnered notable community voter support include:
- FoxIC, a tool that will allow MetaMask users to use the wallet to interact with the Internet Computer.
- Eimolad, an MMORPG NFT game that is fully deployed on the Internet Computer.
- Motoko-Base-Manual, a quick search tool for Motoko base modules.
The Cosmicrafts team will receive a $10,000 cash prize and a $5,000 grant — as well as a special NFT from the new Motoko Mech collection that will be airdropped to Supernova participants, Motoko Ghost NFT owners, and random Community Choice voters to celebrate the end of an extraordinary hackathon… the Motoko Mech Zero!
The Motoko Mechs series is a collection of 2,021 unique NFTs, each of which is the product of intensive design, featuring a distinctive combination of various materials and color elements — corresponding to the Internet Computer’s R&D Roadmap and the Brand Colors Guide, such as Copper (2019 Q4 Milestone) and ICP’s secondary color Razzmatazz — as well as different component configurations and propulsion systems.
Rarity is determined by the limited number of available components that construct each Motoko Mech, with the Zero’s unique elements making it the only Mech in the collection that has a 100% rarity index.
Apart from the Zero, the new Motoko Mechs NFTs will be distributed to the 523 hackers from teams that submitted viable projects for consideration during Supernova. The remaining Motoko Mechs will be distributed among 856 holders of the previous Motoko Ghosts NFTs according to a snapshot, as well as 641 random IC community members who participated in Supernova Community Choice voting.
Motoko is an open-source, actor-based programming language that is optimized for the Internet Computer. Created by Andreas Rossberg, co-creator of WebAssembly, and a team of programming language experts, Motoko makes it easier for developers to efficiently build Web3 applications and leverage the Internet Computer blockchain’s unique features.
The Motoko Mechs series is executive produced by Andrew Tang, DFINITY’s General Manager of Web3 Games and former General Manager at Unity Technologies, in collaboration with notable Unreal Engine graphic artist Alex Wu. The DFINITY Foundation is partnering with Toniq Labs to manage the minting and airdropping of the Motoko Mechs collection.
While NFTs on conventional blockchains typically refer to assets that are hosted on centralized providers, NFTs on the Internet Computer are hosted entirely on-chain, making them more resilient and capable of enhanced integrations and utility. Entrepot has more than 130 collections with total assets exceeding 250GB — including 3D objects, music, videos, flowers that change their animations based on BTC price, and more — all of it hosted on the Internet Computer.
