Get started with ZeppelinOS!

To help you get prepared for all the hacking at #ETHDenver this year, we wanted to put together a quick toolkit to help you get hacking as quickly and easily (and securely!) as possible.

We are offering some sweet bounties this year so check them out as well!


First- want to get started fast? Like REALLY fast? Get ZepKit everything you need to get up and hacking, like, RIGHT NOW.

  • Includes OpenZeppelin as an EVM package.
  • Upgradeable smart contracts with ZeppelinOS.
  • Includes Infura setup for easy deployments & connection.
  • Truffle to compile & test smart contracts.
  • React & Rimble to build usable and friendly interfaces.


We have plenty of resources for you to learn how to use ZepKit and OpenZeppelin's Secure Audited Smart Contracts.
