Xircus x Draper Startup House: Web3 Hackathon and Collaboration Initiative

6 min readFeb 8, 2023

Xircus Web3 Protocol is gearing up to collaborate with Draper Startup House, which is part of Tim Draper’s investor’s funding network; a global network and ecosystem for businesses that offers mentorship, support for entrepreneurs, and learning opportunities. The first-ever Xircus Hackathon will be held in Manila, Philippines, as the culmination of the collaboration between Xircus and Draper Startup House.

The Xircus Web3 Protocol promises to democratize the Internet by harnessing blockchain technology, allowing for a fast and quick transition from Web2 to Web3. However, current Web3 solutions have several challenges, including high costs, complexity, and prolonged implementation periods, making mainstream adoption difficult. These platforms’ rigidity also limits modification, functionality, and interoperability.

Xircus is a no-code and low-code platform that anybody may use to create their own decentralized applications (dApps) on a variety of blockchains. The company’s mission is to bring Web3 to the masses by including a wide spectrum of entrepreneurs, token communities, brands, and enterprises, all of which have practical token utility.

Xircus x Draper Startup House

Xircus is all set to partner with the global startup mentor and ecosystem for entrepreneurs, Draper Startup House. The collaboration between Xircus Web3 Protocol and Draper Startup House is significant since it leverages the strengths of both organizations to bring about internet democratization. The Xircus Web3 Protocol provides a highly flexible, no-code Web3 development environment that can aid in the development of dApps on a variety of blockchains, tokens, backends, frontends, and DEXs.

Draper Startup House, on the other hand, provides startups with tools and support to help them grow and prosper in the competitive technology landscape. Draper Startup House offers Xircus a global reach and increases its reach to a bigger and more varied audience through hackathons and other events.

By working together, the two organizations will be able to provide a comprehensive solution that will make it easier for entrepreneurs, token communities, brands, and corporations to reap the benefits of blockchain technology.

Xircus x Draper Startup House: Evolution

The collaboration intends to combine Xircus’ expertise in Web3 technology with the resources and network of Draper Startup House, resulting in a potent combination that will accelerate the expansion of the Web3 ecosystem.

Both Xircus and Draper will continue to collaborate in order to democratize the internet and make Web3 technology more accessible to a wider audience. Their collaboration will open up new avenues for collaboration and provide entrepreneurs, token communities, brands, and enterprises with even more comprehensive solutions. The partnership’s mission remains to promote the growth, adoption, and enabling the success of the Web3 sector.

We are really excited to begin our first hackathon in Manila, the hub of NFT adoption and to bring together the Web3 community’s greatest and brightest brains to investigate the potential of blockchain technology.

Xircus Developers Community and global scaling

Many of the main crypto ecosystems, such as Bitcoin and Binance, were developed during economic downturns, such as the 2008 financial crisis and the 2017 crypto meltdown. This demonstrates the development community’s unwavering faith and determination in the viability of crypto and blockchain technologies.

“For all the youngsters who are spending a disproportionate amount of time trying to justify blockchain or crypto, I want to remind you that there was a time when the internet itself was considered a fad… If you spent as much energy practicing and executing your craft as you do debating whether crypto or blockchain will succeed, you would be much further ahead.”

- Gary Vaynerchuk aka Gary Vee

The crypto market downturn in 2022 did not discourage the developer community, with activity reaching all-time highs even in the toughest of times.

This is why Draper’s partnership with DevCon.ph, the largest community of tech experts, developers, and IT enthusiasts in the Philippines, is so significant. With this collaboration, now is the perfect time to launch a series of hackathons and capture the market at both the technological and community level.

Xircus recently presented their project to a group of entrepreneurs and Web3 enthusiasts at Draper Startup House Manila. Xircus will launch its first-ever hackathon at the same location.

Xircus Global Hackathons

A hackathon, generally, is an event that brings together developers, designers, entrepreneurs, and other technology enthusiasts to cooperate and build new products or solutions in a short amount of time. Participants form groups, work on a project, and present their ideas to a panel of experts. The hackathon winners will be awarded prizes at the end of the event.

The Xircus hackathon aims to bring together developers, entrepreneurs, and technology enthusiasts to create a platform for innovation and problem-solving. Participants will have the opportunity to develop their skills, network with others, and gain recognition for their ideas. The hackathon also provides a chance for recruitment, collaboration, and employee engagement, and promotes diversity and inclusion. With a fast-paced environment and quick prototyping, the hackathon encourages fun and creativity while raising external awareness and community outreach.

However, the Xircus hackathon is not merely a developer-oriented event but an opportunity for entrepreneurs to pitch their products, business, or brand through Xircus’ low-code and no-code solutions. Develop your own Web3 experience for your idea in minutes during the hackathon and present it to the global community of entrepreneurs. The experts will select a winner by the end of the hackathon. Xircus will briefly announce the criteria for selecting a winner and other details via its social media handles.

The first of many hackathons will be held in Manila, the Philippines’ capital. According to finders.com, the Philippines leads the world in NFT adoption, with Manila serving as a hub for NFT holders.

Holding the first hackathon in the heart of the Web3/NFT enthusiast community is not only a lucky charm, but it also brings together the most brilliant and passionate individuals in the sector, making it the ideal location for the kick-off event.

This will be an excellent opportunity to validate the solutions and demonstrate Web3’s potential to a highly active and enthusiastic audience. We are convinced that the Manila hackathon will pave the road for the successful and impactful adoption of NFTs as a catalyst for Web3 businesses, entrepreneurs, and developers. This event will serve as a platform for Web3 enthusiasts to showcase their skills and bring their ideas to life, marking the beginning of a series of hackathons to be held in multiple locations worldwide in the coming years, in collaboration with Draper Startup House and others.
