The Telos Team is ecstatic by the number of entries received for the first Telos Spark Hackathon. There were 156 entries and 26 published projects. We had so many great projects that the team allocated another 20k TLOS to add two more finalists.
The judging of these projects was an incredibly challenging task for the team due to all the quality entries. Especially because they were all promising and unique. The most prevalent common denominator that all these great projects had in common was the dedication of each team.
So, without further adieu, say hello to our Telos Spark EVM hackathon winners!

A Note From the Telos Team
“These last couple of weeks have blown away all our expectations. So many quality projects are now growing deep roots within the tEVM, and they love it, and we them. There is lots of synergy here and lots of gravity to the speed, low fixed costs, and credible neutrality of the tEVM. Telos is not just a hackathon chain. It is a perfect place to build high-performance, scalable and real-world-ready applications!”
Justin Giudici, CEO of the Telos Foundation
“The dedication, quality, and performance of the Kluest team lead the way. We are excited to see a hackathon project close to a genuine product and could be launched on Telos EVM very soon!”
Kersten Wirth, Program Manager & Speaker of the Jury, Telos Core Development
“Seeing these applications built in such a short time is exciting. I am always thrilled to see executed transactions on testnet and mainnet in our block explorers as proof that the teams created something that works!”
Jesse Schulman, Lead Architect and TCO, Telos Core Development
“We have been overwhelmed by the quality of applicants to the Spark Hackathon. The engagement process with applicant teams has been an inspiration, demonstrating the continued strong growth profile in our dApp ecosystem. We can’t wait to have these projects built on Telos!”
