### Prize Title
Build a DeFi Application with Band Protocol Price Feed over Cosmos IBC
### Prize Bounty
$2000 in BAND
- $1000 each to two winners
### Challenge Description
DeFi has exploded in the past two years from a niche market to an over $1 Billion industry earlier this year. However, without a cross-chain oracle and liquidity, the bulk of DeFi activity has been limited to Ethereum. Let’s change that!
We’d like to see you build a cross-chain DeFi protocol that consumes oracle data from BandChain over the Cosmos IBC. Qualifying protocols include:
- Synthetic assets (bitcoin, stock, commodities, short & leverage counterparts)
- Lending & borrowing
- Margin trading
- Decentralized exchanges with advanced trade orders (stop-limit, trailing-stop, orders triggered by external signals such as fear and greed or ETH Gas prices).
- Insurance protocols
What would you like to see on-chain that doesn’t exist yet due to the lack of a secure data source or cross-chain compatibility?
Many use-cases can be unlocked through Band Protocol’s ability to connect smart contracts to any open API or data source to provide price feeds, on-chain metrics such as gas cost or Bitcoin block hash, real-world events and more!
### Submission Requirements
- Request and consume oracle data from BandChain over Cosmos IBC
- Be open-source
- Have a working demo (strongly recommended) or an exceptional proof-of-concept which can be in the form of wireframes, landing page, prototypes or production code.
### Submission Deadline
May 11th, 23:59:59 UTC
### Judging Criteria
The prize will be awarded to the submission that produces the:
- Best implementation of IBC & Band Protocol’s oracle flexibility
- Most innovative DeFi application
- Best go-to-market strategy & degree differentiation from existing DeFi protocols
### Winner Announcement Date
May 18th, 2020
