🍔 Food & Drink

We know you’ll be working hard, but we encourage you to take occasional breaks (and share your experiences on social media!) Feel free to share as much as you’d like, we love showcasing what our hackers are working on. On top of that, don’t miss your chance to connect with our Partners, who are all eager to meet you.

もちろん一生懸命取り組んでくださることは知っていますが、適宜休憩を挟みながら開発を進めてください(そしてぜひETHGlobal Tokyoでの体験をSNSで共有してください!)私たちは、あなた方の取り組みを積極的に紹介していきたいと思っていますので、どんなことでも自由に共有してください。さらに、あなたにとっても楽しい出会いが待っています。パートナーシップ企業との交流の機会もお見逃しなく!

👩‍⚖️ Step 3: Project Submissions + Judging | ステップ3:プロジェクト提出+審査

Our Project Submissions & Judging process is designed to make it easy to get feedback on your work. You will submit your project via the Hacker Dashboard, but will not receive your Judging Appointment until you show up to the Main Judging Green Room on Sunday Morning.

Step 1: Show up to Judging Green Room

Step 2: Receive your Judging Appointment

Step 3: Present to our Judges live at your assigned room

Step 4: Demo to Partner Teams at their table (if interested in Partner Prizes)

Just like all of our events, you will be given a chance to have your project judged live by a panel of ecosystem experts. We believe this is crucial to giving developers and creatives in our community (like you) face time with those building the projects that you’ve worked on, or would like to someday work for!

🚩 Note: If you do not wish to compete for Finalist Prizes, you do not have to participate in Main Judging.


  • ステップ1:審査グリーンルームに出席する
  • ステップ2:審査予約を受け取る
  • ステップ3:割り当てられた部屋で審査員にその場でプレゼンテーションを行う
  • ステップ4:パートナープロジェクトのブースでデモを行う(パートナー先からのプライズに興味がある場合)



🎉Step 4: Celebrating Your Work! | ステップ4:あなたの成果をお祝いしましょう!

After you’ve submitted your project you can relax. Once we’re finished reviewing project submissions, we will contact the Finalist teams via Discord and give them the opportunity to demo their builds live on stage. No matter how many prizes you take home, you’ll be counted amongst the select few who have built their projects at an ETHGlobal hackathon.

🚩 Note: If you are selected as an ETHGlobal Tokyo Finalist, we will notify you via Discord by 2:00pm local time (prior to Closing Ceremony) Please check Discord regularly so you don’t miss this.

Though we select finalists from each of our events, it’s important to note that hackathons are more about personal growth than competition. We encourage all hackers to take risks, try new things, and get their hands dirty — we’re excited to see what you build!


🚩注意:ETHGlobal Tokyoのファイナリストに選ばれた場合、閉会式前の現地時間午後2時までにDiscordで通知します。これを見逃さないようにDiscordを定期的に確認してください。


⛑ Safety at ETHGlobal Tokyo | ETHGlobal Tokyoにおける安全性

We’re working hard to create the best possible environment for you while in Tokyo. All large cities present certain risks for travellers, and Tokyo is no different. Please read through our Tokyo City Tips document in preparation for joining us at the event!

In line with these efforts, we will be actively enforcing our badge & wristband policy. You must have your badge and wristband visible to our security staff at all times in order to be inside the event venue. Do not remove or share your badge or wristband with anyone else. Finally, please let us know if anyone (or anything) makes you feel unsafe — we want to do our best to make you feel like family.
