OriginTrail Launches Open Call

At OriginTrail, we believe that the power of decentralized solutions will deliver value to a large variety of use cases. We aim to identify and empower teams who are working to solve supply chain challenges and will utilize the OriginTrail protocol to achieve data integrity.

The purpose of the Open Call is to support development and deployment of supply chain and other applications, which utilize the OriginTrail protocol and will run on the OriginTrail Decentralized Network (ODN). The goal of the Open Call is to put 10 relevant scalable use cases to the ODN.

Benefits of Participating in the Open Call

Ten promising projects selected by OriginTrail TRAC token holders will receive a total of 135,000 USD worth of awards in TRAC tokens, mentorship, and other support for building solutions on top of the OriginTrail Decentralized Network (ODN). Since OriginTrail values its community and wants to give them a chance to participate in the Open Call, TRAC token holders will have the opportunity to select projects that will receive the rewards. The Open Call application period is open until November 9th, 2018.

By joining the Open Call, you will be able to compete for:

  • Up to 30,000 USD worth of incentives in TRAC tokens;
  • Mentorship by the OriginTrail team (online and on-site workshops with the core development team);
  • Exposure of your project in the OriginTrail ecosystem.

The winning team will receive an award of 30,000 USD in TRAC tokens, a live workshop with our team and an online mentorship program.

Teams that come in second and third will receive 20,000 USD and 15,000 USD in TRAC, respectively, as well as additional perks. All other selected teams will receive 10,000 USD worth of TRAC, which will enable them to run their solutions on the OriginTrail Decentralized Network.
