Blast Testnet Goes Live: Developers Compete for Rewards in Its Big Bang Competition

Blast, a platform created by the founder of Blur, Tieshun Roquerre, has officially launched its testnet. To celebrate this milestone, the platform has also announced the commencement of its Big Bang competition, aimed at motivating developers to showcase their decentralized applications (dapps) on the platform.

Participants in the competition have the chance to win rewards which offers an incredible opportunity for dapp developers to gain exposure and connect with a large user base. The competition aims to attract 100,000 users and boasts an impressive $1.3 billion in Total Value Locked (TVL), making it an enticing prospect for developers looking to make a mark in the blockchain space.

Winning dapps will be showcased to Blast users upon the mainnet launch, scheduled for the end of February. This exposure can greatly contribute to user adoption and the overall success of the apps. Moreover, successful teams will have the chance to interact with judges and potential investors, who are eager to deploy investments into Blast-native dapps. This direct access to industry experts and investors can provide invaluable guidance and support for the growth of the winning dapps.

50% Airdrop Value Prepared for Developers

The Blast airdrop is another enticing aspect of the competition. With 50% of the airdrop specifically earmarked for developers, this represents one of the largest distributions of rewards to date. It serves as an incentive for developers to fuel the growth of their dapps on the mainnet, offering them a competitive edge over their counterparts.

By participating in the Big Bang competition, developers not only have the opportunity to gain recognition but also to secure substantial rewards through the airdrop. To further assist participants, Blast has arranged one-on-one office hours with experienced professionals in various areas. These experts include specialists in product development and incentives, a PMF (Product-Market Fit) expert, a pitching and fundraising specialist, as well as Blast’s CTO and Design Lead. The provision of office hours allows developers to seek personalized advice, refine their strategies, and maximize their chances of success in the competition.

How to Be a Part of the Blast Big Bang Competition

To join the Blast Big Bang competition, interested developers must register before February 16 and become members of the Blast Builders slack community. Submissions for projects must be made by the same date, and the judging process will take place on February 20. Winners will be announced, and their dapps will be featured to a user base of over 100,000 at the Mainnet launch, which is set to take place at the end of February.

The competition covers eight categories, with dapps being evaluated based on their concept, execution, and Blast-native features. Late-stage and early-stage projects will be judged separately, ensuring fair assessment and recognition for both established and emerging developers.

The Blast Big Bang competition represents a significant opportunity for dapp developers to gain exposure, receive rewards through the airdrop, and connect with potential investors. With the testnet now live, developers are encouraged to seize this chance to make their mark through decentralized solutions.
