Builders are paramount to success in blockchain, because without them Fantom is more of a tech company rather than a community, or an inclusive ecosystem. Developers are the lynch-pin of our community, and we believe that they’ll be the backbone of Fantom in the years to come.

We recently announced a developer contest on our official Subreddit silently, but today we’re excited to announce that we’ll be expanding that competition through higher rewards and more flexibility. Instead of purely looking within our own circles and communities, we also wish to work with the developers of other ecosystems such as the Cosmos/Tendermint ecosystem. That’s why we’re calling to anyone who is passionate about Cosmos SDK, and those who can build exciting use cases on top of it as we move closer towards the first mainnet launch which will utilize Cosmos SDK in combination with Fantom consensus.

How do I get involved in the developer contest?

The rules are simple, build an innovative and exciting proof-of-concept which utilizes XAR Network (Cosmos SDK + TxFlow aBFT/Go-Lachesis) repositories, and then share it to us on our email for developers.

We are planning to deploy up to 35,000$ in Fantom tokens (FTM) to reward teams in the coming months who build working proof-of-concepts with the technology, and we’re reviewing each and every submission with the intention to give excellent teams a full time contract with the foundation. The guidline for the rewards are $2,000 for a working proof-of-concept, and $3,000 for a product which is in an even further stage.
