We (the Bitcoin Design Community) had a designathon! Imagine a traditional hackathon, but this time focused only on design. Our goal was to motivate designers and builders to get together and collaboratively explore ideas and concepts in and around the bitcoin ecosystem. We coordinated with the Bolt.fun Legends of Lightning tournament and TABConf Builder Day, and chatted in Slack in the #designathon channel, and on Twitter.
It was a blast. Thank you to all participants for your creative energy and hard work. Thank you to all who helped make this event happen, especially our amazing sponsors. Check out the participating projects below.
These were the projects being worked on at Designathon, you can see the final presentations in this call recording. Some of them chose to continue in Legends of Lightning.

The designathon generally had a loose schedule, with projects deciding their own pace. Important, but still optional, were the kick-off, mid-event check-in, and wrap-up calls.
The designathon started at the same time as several other events. Those were great opportunities to meet others, find interesting projects, help out, etc.
Enter your project into this 2-month online global tournament and compete for prizes of up to ~$60,000 in bitcoin. Or if you are already part of the tournament, use the designathon to get design support. October 12 to Dec 7.
Stephen hosted a Bitcoin Design table at the TABConf Builder Day, which started the same day as the designathon. You could stop by and hack on your designathon project. October 12 to 15.
Several members of the Bitcoin Design Community attended this conference, which also started the same day as the designathon. You were invited to say hi and kick off the events together. October 12 to 14.
