Developers from all over the world are encouraged to develop pioneering solutions and take advantage of the first mover advantage
Neo, a leading community-driven blockchain platform, launched the Neo Frontier Launchpad Program, a multi-phased global hackathon aimed at accelerating the future of blockchain by encouraging developers to join the neo ecosystem to build tomorrow’s smart economy by accelerating N3’s infrastructure development. Throughout the program, the Neo team and ecosystem will continuously involve and support the participating developers in researching and developing innovative solutions using the optimized features and powerful capabilities of N3 RC2.
As the newest and most powerful version of the Neo platform, N3 offers a range of powerful features such as decentralized storage, oracles, cross-chain functions, and block finality. The Neo Frontier Launchpad underlines Neo’s developer-oriented approach and offers pioneers the unique opportunity to join the Neo ecosystem while taking advantage of the First Mover. With the Launchpad program, participating developers will be among the first to take advantage of the latest features in N3 and connect with the Neo team at every step to deliver next generation solutions. In total, over $ 100,000 in tokens will be awarded for winning projects, while the top three winners will automatically be entered into N3’s Early Adoption Program, which gives teams $ 10 million in token support, technical assistance and advice from Neo’s business development team.
With the aim of assisting and assisting developers every step of the way, the Neo Frontier Launchpad is open to anyone who reaches the age of majority in their country of residence.
In addition, the hackathon consists of two phases for optimized results:
- Planathon (May 24th – June 7th: So that participants can fully develop their Frontier projects, the Planathon offers them the opportunity to create a comprehensive development plan and at the same time organize a team. On the way there, the Neo-Team will actively give feedback and at the same time offer the opportunity to gain “multipliers” for teams with the best plans. For example, if a team wins a 1.5x multiplier and a hackathon prize of USD 12,000, they will actually give feedback and receive USD 18,000. Also, while participants do not have to participate in the planathon, teams participating in the planathon have the benefit of having their final submission judged against their original plan, offering more options and benefits.
- Development (June 11th – July 12th): Submissions for the development phase of the Neo Frontier Hackathon will open one week after the results of the planathon are announced. In this phase, the teams start building their projects. Neo shows its commitment to developers by providing a comprehensive set of quickstarts, guides, sample applications, and tutorials at the beginning of the development phase.
