As NFTs continue to surge in popularity over the next few months, we are aiming to better certain structures and functionalities on the Zilliqa blockchain to improve our community’s experience with NFTs. We are looking to the Gitcoin community to help build projects centred around these few focuses:
There are plenty of opportunities for everyone to participate, contribute and grow within the Zilliqa ecosystem. Read on to discover how you can get involved!
All projects should be built on Zilliqa. Selected projects will also gain the chance to join the ZILHive Grants programme.
Zilliqa is the world's first sharded smart contract platform that is designed to scale while remaining fully decentralized. It has a total of 4 shards, each possessing 600 community validators, and the network can process up to thousands of transactions per second. Zilliqa also runs on a functional smart contract programming language, Scilla, that aims to eliminate bugs before run time and hence making the development process much faster and secure.
Zilliqa is committed to growing its developer/talent ecosystem through its ZILHive Education/Grants/Accelerator programmes, and we want you to take the first step in the ZILHive community by participating in this hackathon.
Our two week hackathon will commence on May 28. Check out our existing learning resource LearnScilla to get a sense of how to build on Zilliqa, and what sort of learning resources we are looking out for. Do also check out dev.zilliqa.com to get a feel of how the development process on Zilliqa will look like before the hackathon kicks off.
All submissions will be judged by a panel of Zilliqa’s core developers and ZILHive employees.
