The Bitcoin Design Community is organising a designathon! Imagine a traditional hackathon, but this time focused only on design. Our goal is to motivate designers and builders to get together and collaboratively explore ideas and concepts in and around the bitcoin ecosystem. The designathon will happen in coordination with the Bolt.fun Legends of Lightning tournament, and we are working on coordinating with the TABConf Builder Day
For updates, join us on Slack in the #designathon channel, and on Twitter.
It all starts with ideas. In the time leading up to the designathon, we invite you to submit your ideas. They can turn into projects for you and/or others to collaborate on during the designathon. After a super quick review (more on this here), idea submissions will appear below.Submit your idea

The designathon has generally a loose schedule, with projects deciding their own pace. Important are the kick-off, mid-event check-in, and wrap-up calls. We are currently working on scheduling a few workshops, design jam sessions and other calls. You can submit an event via this form.
Join us if you can to start the designathon in a video call. If you can't make it, all updates will also be posted in the #designathon channel on Slack.
Thank you to our amazing sponsors for allowing us to give tokens of gratitudes to participants for their efforts. Details will be added here soon.
The designathon starts at the same time as several other events. Those are 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.
Stephen will host a Bitcoin Design table at the TABConf Builder Day, which starts the same day as the designathon. Stop by and hack on your designathon project.
Several members of the Bitcoin Design Community will be attending this conference, which also starts the same day as the designathon. Say hi and let's kick off the events together.
