Hello hackers and builders! Today we are super excited to launch this hackathon in collaboration with Gitcoin! BUIDL with $XSGD-ZRC2 is StraitsX’s first Hackathon that is hosted in collaboration with Zilliqa, a high-performance, high-security blockchain platform.
There are plenty of opportunities for everyone to participate, contribute and grow with the StraitsX<>Zilliqa ecosystem. Read on to discover how you can get involved!
Prizes are 50% $ZIL tokens and 50% $XSGD (here expressed in $ equivalent):
All projects should be built on Zilliqa and must utilise the XSGD-ZRC2 token. Selected projects will also gain the chance to join the ZILHive Grants programme.
Xfers is a Major Payment Institution (“MPI”) licensed by the Monetary Authority of Singapore (MAS) for e-money issuance and StraitsX is pioneering the world’s first Travel Rule compliant ASEAN stablecoins, starting with XSGD, backed 1:1 with the Singapore Dollar (SGD).
StraitsX is committed to growing the decentralized ecosystem and we want you to be part of it from the beginning through this hackathon.
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 three week hackathon will commence on October 19. A series of education videos will also be uploaded to YouTube a week prior to the hackathon start date, allowing participants to get up to speed with building on Zilliqa, integrating with XSGD and the ZRC2 standard and other possibilities. 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.
