5 min readJan 11, 2022

We are excited to announce RMRK as an official sponsor of The Crab Hackathon!

RMRK and Darwinia will also jointly explore use cases in NFT cross-chain interoperability for the Web3.0 Metaverse. Darwinia Substrate-to-Substrate bridge and NFT bridge will help expand RMRK NFT utilities across the Dotsama and Ethereum ecosystem. Kanaria and Evolution Land will collaborate to showcase the reuse of NFTs across different Metaverse worlds.

RMRK Support

  • Technical Mentorship
  • RMRK legendary NFTs prize

RMRK will provide technical support to participants developing the RMRK protocol on the Crab network and will award one of only 10 legendary NFTs to three of the winners.

Builders needing help with RMRK integration are invited to join t.me/rmrkimpl for help from other community members and developers as well as the core team.

Evaluation Standards

Any project integrating RMRK in any way — be it analytics, bridging, equipping mechanics and UI, or anything else — will be evaluated by the RMRK team at the end of the hackathon. The top 3 teams to build something impressive will get one of 10 legendary NFTs. Note that this is per team, so you will have to decide who gets it, or share it on a multi-sig account.

To pass evaluation the project must interact with the RMRK protocol in a read or write way, the project should connect to the Kusama-hosted RMRK protocol, not the protocol on any other chain, and if it is compatible with RMRK on another chain it should also be easily switchable to support the Kusama deployment, and the project should be open source with a permissive license (MIT).

Tips and tricks:

  • Do not integrate buying/selling. Due to the way the protocol is designed right now, you might be vulnerable to double-buys without proper safeguards in place, and these safeguards are outside the scope of this hackathon. This problem will be resolved as RMRK moves into contracts and pallets.
  • Build on RMRK2 instead of RMRK1 — see the tools and spec for details.
  • Share your prototype with the team in http://t.me/rmrkimpl as you’re building it for feedback and direction.

About Darwinia Crab Network

Crab is running for the Kusama parachain auction.

Crab is the canary network of Darwinia and implemented with DVM(Darwinia Virtual Machine), which is EVM(Ethereum Virtual Machine) compatible, providing developers with the ability to rapidly port dapps from Ethereum and EVM-compatible chains to the Polkadot ecosystem.

  1. Ease of multi-chain integration:
  • DVM(Darwinia Virtual Machine) is EVM(Ethereum Virtual Machine) compatible, which provides developers with the ability to rapidly port dapps from Ethereum and EVM-compatible chains to the Polkadot ecosystem.

2. An EVM+ platform, Crab is also providing:

  • Substrate-to-Substrate bridge
  • Ethereum cross-chain bridge

DEX building on Crab can integrate cross-chain assets across Ethereum and Polkadot ecosystem.
For NFT applications,enable to discover cross-chain NFT interoperability with Substrate-based chains, such as RMRK on Kusama.

3. Oasis for the Polkadot Metaverse ecosystem;
Darwinia has developed Metaverse game Evolution Land, which has been included in TOP 5 NFT games, etc.

For Gamefi applications, enable to showcase the reuse of NFTs by integrating NFTs into Evolution Land.

Active community to fix your cold-start problem;

As a growing EVM compatible platform still at an early stage,community users are requesting diversified Defi,NFT,Gamefi applications.

Building on Crab help project efficiently expand user adoption of project’s application.

About Evolution Land

Evolution Land is the first Defi+NFT cross-chain game. The game will have up to 26 continents, each of which is deployed on a different public chain. Evolution land has various Gamefi gameplays, such as management, NFT collection, Gene, Battle, Auction, Breed, Building, etc.25+projects have joined the Evolution Land ecosystem and it is evolving into the Web3.0 Metaverse.

About Darwinia Network

Darwinia Network is a decentralized cross-chain bridge network building on Substrate, which is the “cross-chain bridge hub” of the Web 3.0 Metaverse. It provides a safe and general bridging solution, connects to Polkadot, Ethereum, TRON, and other heterogeneous chains by cross-chain transfer of assets and remote chain calls.

Darwinia Network has gained high reputation and recognition along the way to build the decentralized cross-chain bridge protocol. In 2020, Darwinia was written in Polkadot light-paper as one of the friends of Polkadot and Substrate. And Darwinia was selected to join Substrate Builder Program and Web3.0 Bootcamp, and for the outstanding work in Substrate Builder Program, Darwinia Network was officially awarded the Level 2 badge by Parity. The products and tools developed by Darwinia have been rewarded three W3F Grants.

Darwinia has been contributing to the compatibility and interoperability of the Metaverse.

The application areas of Darwinia Network include DeFi, cross-chain NFT trading, games, etc. Darwinia also develops the Metaverse game Evolution Land.
