Thousands of Dollars Up For Grabs In Decentralized Umoja Algorand Bounty Hack III
The Africa Blockchain Alliance, Algorand Foundation and Reach are calling for applications to the third Umoja Algorand Bounty Hack with thousands of dollars available in prizes and incentives.
Following the success of the Decentralized Umoja Algorand Bounty Hacks 1 and 2, the Algorand Foundation, Reach and the Africa Blockchain Alliance have released a call for applications for the third Umoja Algorand Bounty Hack.
The Africa Blockchain Alliance formed the collaboration to keep in line with its commitment to promote blockchain education on the African continent with this fast-paced and flexible training program for web developers in Africa looking to enter the blockchain development field.
Over the course of six weeks, the program will take the shape of an online Bounty Hack Series, a supervised hackathon where participants (teams and individuals) learn to create blockchain applications (Dapps) and then finish tasks from a list of pre-approved projects.
The teams will each be assigned a mentor who will work closely with them to ensure that they reach their full potential. The developed dapps are to be presented and voted on by participants at the end of the hack.
The top three teams will receive prizes but beyond that, every team that participates and completes their project receives a prize of $1,000 or more simply for taking part.
The rewards and incentives for participation are as follows:
1st prize is $3,000 while 2nd prize is $2,000 and 3rd prize is $1,000. All other participating teams that complete the project will receive $1,000. An additional $1,000 is up for grabs as the Community Choice Award.
$250 is available for writing an article describing your project, and $300 for joining a call describing your project to the project team after the hack.
There is also $500 for turning your project into a Reach workshop (with a pull request) or $750 for turning your project into a Reach tutorial (with a pull request).
In addition to the prizes, participants will receive ongoing support from the organizers after the hackathon to help them develop their projects or careers in blockchain.
The hackathon is open to all developers with any level of software development experience and the most important thing for consideration is to commit to finishing the tutorial and a project.
Developers interested in participating can apply now by using this link as the application window closes on July 15th, 2022.
The program will run from July 19th to September 15th, 2022 and for now, more information and a detailed timetable can be found here on the official landing page for the Bounty Hack.
