Cash prize for the best Dapp has been announced by Aventus in a blog post recently. The company hopes to spur growth for their Ethereum-based ticketing platform.
Aventus announced the release of Aventus Classic, a fully decentralised, open-source protocol designed to create a more equitable and transparent ticketing industry. Boasting a record public blockchain ticket transaction speed of 100 tickets a second, Aventus Classic is built upon the Ethereum blockchain and sets a new global open standard for the exchange of tickets, without having to rely on layer-2 solutions that trade-off trust, finality, and decentralisation.
This release marks their first real step in engaging with the open-source community, as Aventus Classic will now be open to contributions from anyone and will no longer be solely developed by official partners of the Aventus Protocol Foundation.
The release coincides with our Aventus Classic DApp Competition in partnership with The Satoshi Awards. Entrants are to try their hand at building a blockchain-based ticketing system, with the winner to be awarded $15,000 worth of Ether and 2 VIP tickets to the ceremony. The winning build will be used as the ticketing platform for The Satoshi Awards’ first ever event, taking place mid-2020.
Open to all blockchain developers and development teams, and running between the 12th September 2019 and the 12th November 2019, competition entrants must create a ticket sales platform, a ticket delivery app and an access control app utilizing their newly released code.
