Snowball Joins Moralis Avalanche Hackathon
We at Moralis couldn’t be happier to welcome Snowball as an official partner to the Moralis Avalanche Hackathon! The Moralis Avalanche Hackathon began earlier this week, on December 6th, and will run until January 31st, 2022.
The Moralis Avalanche Hackathon has already amassed a total prize pool of $500,000 at the moment of writing. What’s more, a whopping $175,000 of this is just the prize pool for the top three prizes. Specifically, the Moralis Avalanche Hackathon grand prize will reward one lucky project with $100,000. The second main prize will reward the second-place team with $50,000, and the team that comes in third place will receive $25,000.
Moreover, the rules to qualify for these main prizes are exceedingly simple. All participants need to do is to make sure that they build their projects using Avalanche and Moralis. In addition to these top three prizes, however, other hackathon sponsors are contributing with their very own prize pools. For example, Snowball is offering a prize pool of $30,000.
Snowball Prize Pool
The Snowball team are glad to further boost community engagement in the Moralis Avalanche Hackathon by offering a prize pool of $30,000. This prize pool will go towards encouraging innovation regarding dApp notification systems. Specifically, the prize Snowball is sponsoring is for the ”Best Implementation of Opt-in Notification Systems for dApps”.
So, what does this mean? Well, Snowball is looking for a project that showcases a working prototype of a notification system. In this, Snowball foresees that users can opt-in to this notification system with a simple signature and a public address. Check our Moralis Avalanche Hackathon page for even more information!
