🏆 Rewards: Conquer the coding challenges checkpoints and the beer's on us (sort of).

The beer plan:

To win a share of the $2,000 prize pool in our onboarding challenge at ETHDenver, participants must navigate through a series of engaging and instructive checkpoints. Each checkpoint is designed to build upon the last, guiding you through the essential stages of blockchain development on the MultiversX stack. Here's what you need to conquer:

Checkpoint 1: Dive Into MultiversX

  • General Introduction: Start your journey with an overview of the MultiversX SDKs, the playground, and set the stage for what you'll achieve in this workshop.
  • Setting Up the Playground: Get hands-on guidance to prepare your development environment, ensuring you're fully equipped to bring your ideas to life.
  • Smart Contracts Creation: Learn the basics of smart contract development with direct support from MultiversX mentors, laying the foundation for your blockchain project.
  • Building and Testing Contracts: Engage in a practical session where you'll build and debug your first smart contracts.

Checkpoint 2: Deploy and Interact

  • Deploying the Contracts: Take the leap by deploying your smart contracts to testnet, learning the ins and outs of making your code live.
  • Post Deployment: Explore the functionalities of your deployed contracts, using snippets to interact with them and understand their real-world potential applications.
  • aApp Deployment and Interaction: Extend your skills by creating a front-end dApp interface to interact with your smart contracts, making your project user-friendly.
  • Ask for support: MultiversX mentors will be around to help you through your quest. Easy-peasy.

Checkpoint 3: Innovate and Pitch

  • Brainstorm Session: Collaborate in a brainstorming session to identify real-world problems that can be solved with MultiversX blockchain technology.

Checkpoint 4: Showcase Your Vision

  • Pitch Submission & Voting: The final stage where you'll submit your project. This is your moment to shine and demonstrate how your solution stands out in terms of innovation, feasibility, and utility.

What Comes Next?

The beer journey doesn't end here. The most innovative and impactful ideas will not only win a share of the $2,000 prize pool, but also receive an exclusive invitation to participate in our next hackathon event. This upcoming event will be announced during ETHDenver, offering another platform to showcase your idea, refine your project, and connect with the Multiverse.
