Elephant Wallet and Enter Elastos dApp Competition

Some time ago, on May 17, 2019, Elephant Wallet leader Sjun Song posted an expansive proposal on coordinating a world-wide global Elastos hackathon. A total of 18,800 ELA was allocated between contest rewards and administrative funding towards this endeavor. 

Fast forward to 5 months later. The Elephant Wallet team joined forces with the Enter Elastos Supernodes group in coordinating and unveiling the first worldwide Elastos dApp Idea competition. This contest will be ongoing for the next three months with the first round of dApp idea submissions having opened up September 20, 2019. It will end on October 19, 2019. There are three important steps in the process:

  1. Developers must submit their dApp utilizing Elastos technology; i.e. Carrier, DID, ETH side chain, etc.
  2. Community votes decide the winner each month for 3 months. Every month, up to 3 winning dApp teams will be rewarded with 1500 ELA each to build an MVP of the idea in 6 weeks. 
  3. At the end of the 3 months, the top 3 MVPs will have a chance to win an additional 500-1500 ELA. 

All winners of the dApp competition will keep the rights to their Elastos dApps. All applicants and voters must download the Elephant Wallet first in order to be involved in voting and submitting dApp idea for the contest.
