Call for Applications: Decentralized UMOJA ALGORAND Bounty Hack III

A call for applications has been issued for the third iteration of the Decentralized Umoja Algorand Bounty Hack by the Algorand Foundation and Reach in collaboration with the Africa Blockchain Alliance. This comes as a direct result of the achievements of the Decentralized Umoja Algorand Bounty Hacks 1 and 2. In keeping with the Africa Blockchain Alliance's pledge to promote blockchain education on the African continent, the Alliance collaborated with the Algorand Foundation and Reach to organize this agile and fast-paced program for African web developers who are interested in getting into blockchain development. The program is intended to help web developers transition into blockchain development.

The program will take the form of an online Bounty Hack Series, which is a guided hackathon in which participants (teams and individuals) learn to build blockchain apps (Dapps) and then complete projects from a pre-approved list over the course of six weeks. The program will be hosted online.

Each group will be given a guide or mentor who will assist them in reaching their goals and realizing their full potential through close collaboration with the group. At the conclusion of the hack, the developed dapps are shown to the participants, who then vote on the best of the bunch. The first-, second-, and third-place teams will each receive a prize. However, that is not the end of the exploit. Every team that takes part and finishes their assigned project will receive prizes worth at least $1,000 simply for taking part in the competition.

The information regarding the prizes and the incentives can be found below.

  • 1st prize $3,000; 2nd prize: $2,000 and 3rd prize: $1,000
  • $1,000 to each of the other teams that participated for successfully completing the project
