“Legend X” Hackathon to be Formally Launched, Spurring the Wave of Web 3.0
With the pre-registration in full swing, Legend X has received dozens of application forms from both individual hackers and developer teams. The submission portal will close upon the formal launch of the event, meaning that there isn’t much time left for community invitation so members need to hurry to seize their last opportunity. For details, please read our latest article.
There is much more to expect in our formal event as attendees can get the utmost assistance from our supporting staff. Also, aelf communities can then start voting for projects they favor or advocating the event on social media to win our awesome incentive prizes. Can’t wait to learn what’s waiting ahead? Here is what you may want to know!
The formal registration is significantly different, or, to be more accurate, IMPROVED, compared with pre-registration in various aspects. For starters, the portal is changed from Google Forms to aelf’s hackathon site. More detailed information can be collected and an overview of current progress will be available. Secondly, there will be workshops by aelf’s developer teams that aim to troubleshoot and facilitate the attendees’ experience of deploying onto aelf. And, most importantly, attendees will be under scrutiny and only those qualified hackers can successfully complete their submissions. Seeming a bit intimidating perhaps, but don’t fret, here is a comprehensive list of rules to walk you through all the procedures.
