We’d like to propose a #STATUSBUIDL Week - one of the ways we can promote innovation through experimentation. During #STATUSBUIDL Week, contributors are encouraged to take time away from their day-to-day work to collaborate and develop ideas for Status.
BUIDL: How to Get Started
- Topics can be anything - making Status even easier to use, testing out new features that people might want to see in the app, creating a DApp, building tools that help core contributors, or any fun project that benefits the ecosystem. Feel free to get creative and use the time in a way that you find enjoyable.
- You will have four days to BUIDL and test your project(s) and come up with a point of concept
- Teams of 4 people
- Prizes will be awarded to the top three teams
BUIDL: Prizes (per team member):
- First Place: Valve Index VR kit
- Second Place: 5000 SNT
- Third Place: €50 Amazon voucher
*[Prizes TBC but roughly what we’re aiming for is!:]
