September has proven to be a whirlwind month for Unique Network, characterized by unwavering activity and notable achievements.

We reflect on a busy and productive month filled with exciting events. Our engagement with the community reached new heights, creating connections and driving innovation. We were incredibly excited about our involvement with Polkadot, which opened up new opportunities for decentralized innovation. This was just one aspect of an extraordinary chapter in our story.

Discover the milestones, partnerships, and developments that have defined our journey as we enter the last quarter of 2023.

Revealing winners of Polkadot Hackathon: APAC 2023 at Polkadot:Social Seoul

Recently, Unique Network participated in the Polkadot Hackathon: APAC 2023, organized by AngelHack and Polkadot. This virtual event was held in Seoul, South Korea, and offered networking opportunities and workshops to participants. The goal was to develop innovative solutions in five tracks, with a total prize pool of over $220,000. The grand prize of $18,000 was awarded to the winning team in each track.

The community of Unique Network Builders showcased two standout projects: LoopNFT, which secured first place in the Web3 & Tooling track, and Nesee, which earned the runner-up position in the Interfaces & Experience track.

In celebration of our partnership with AngelHack and their fantastic event, we have released a limited collection of unique and redeemable NFTs as a tribute to our collaboration and the innovative atmosphere of the Polkadot Hackathon APAC: 2023.

Engaging in Polkadot Relayers Incubator 2023


Our experience at the Polkadot Relayers Incubator 2023 was truly memorable. As a participating parachain team, we significantly shaped the "NFT & Gaming" track, one of the program's four main tracks. During the incubator, we were honored to mentor and witness the impressive growth of many talented teams. The program's highlight was announcing the winners of two exceptional projects, Homesy and Forever Has Fallen, at TOKEN20249.

Homesy, created by Craig Bromberg, is a platform that helps digital consumers discover their ideal homes. It utilizes Unique Network's advanced NFT capabilities, such as Nested and Bundled NFTs, to provide users with verified data ownership and an immersive storytelling experience. Meanwhile, Forever Has Fallen, led by Kimon Lycos, is an exciting game that combines storytelling, scavenger hunts, and community involvement.

Mentorship and one-on-one workshop sessions with CEO Alex Mitrovich are provided to each project during their stay at the incubator as part of our commitment to propel the winning teams to greater heights.

Unique Network booth at TOKEN2049 Singapore

We traveled to Singapore in mid-September for various events, including meetups, workshops, hackathons, and networking sessions at TOKEN2049.

For our attendees, it was the perfect opportunity to:

  • Enter a Substrapunk raffle
  • Receive new Unique Network merchandise
  • Chat with the team and share cool ideas

At the Polkadot booth, Unique Network was one of the featured participants alongside esteemed companies such as Ajuna, Moonbeam, Bifrost, Zeitgeist, and Stellaswap.

Outlining and submitting an NFT XCM proposal

Join the conversation as CEO Alex Mitrovich reveals innovative plans for a groundbreaking NFT XCM proposal that has the potential to revolutionize the Polkadot ecosystem. Although the proposal is in its early stages, it aims to simplify the transfer of NFTs across Polkadot parachains, promising to transform the NFT market on Polkadot.

At Polkadot sub0 Europe 2023, Dani Shiposha, a Unique Network Core Developer, presents additional NFT use cases allowing cross-chain NFT interactions across multiple parachains.
