“Our goal as Lumos Labs has been to bring like-minded people together to innovate and create web3 solutions with longevity and sustainability. Through our multiple programs over the years, we have learnt and interacted with thousands of developers and have got to know their needs and demands. The multi chain BUIDL for Web3 program was focused on creating an open platform for innovation where developers could have the flexibility to build on any or many chains and have a wide variety of tracks to build with. We then got the opportunity to network with, guide, and onboard over 7700+ web3 developers and to support them through their journeys. This Hackathon is a testament to the web3 mettle existing today. Our BUIDL for Web3 Hackathon was a remarkable success and we are only going to bring more such opportunities for the web3 developer community in the foreseeable future.” Kaavya Prasad, Founder, Lumos Labs
