Register Now

On July 27, the Sui framework was upgraded to enable developers to build non-custodial liquid staking applications on Sui. This additional functionality in the protocol has created new opportunities for developers to innovate and build creative apps and financial products on Sui.

Sui Foundation is hosting the Liquid Staking Hackathon to identify and reward developer teams that build non-custodial liquid staking functionality into their apps and products.
