Yes! The Big Bang competition is open to both early stage teams that are just starting out with an idea as well as late stage teams looking to get in front of the Blast community. Late and early stage teams will be judged separately.
You can join with multiple projects but know that you will be competing with projects who are focused on nailing a single submission.
A portion of the Blast Developer Airdrop is reserved for competition winners, and a portion is reserved for Mainnet dapps. The exact split has not been revealed but the vast majority of the airdrop is reserved for Mainnet dapps (ie 90%+).
Users don’t receive anything for participating in the testnet, but stay tuned for the Mainnet!
Pacman and the rest of the advisors will work on a best effort basis to schedule 1:1 time with every team that expresses interest. At minimum every team is expected to get personalized advice asynchronously in their personal Blast Builders slack channel.
The exact percentage going towards winners will not be disclosed but it will be the largest individual allocation of points to date.
Absolutely. Giving back developer points to your own users will allow you to bootstrap liquidity and users without having to use your own native token. We encourage dapps to explore incentive design with the Blast team to effectively use the airdrop for long-term growth.
Yes. Your dApp needs to be live on the Blast Sepolia testnet. It does not need to be feature complete however.
Yes. You can submit anonymously, as an independent contributor or as a DAO.
It is not required to have a legal entity or incorporation to participate in the Big Bang competition. Please make sure you read our rules.
Funding is not a judging criteria and late stage projects are judged separately from early stage projects.
While there is no specific criteria, generally Early Stage projects are projects that have little funding or just started building (either after the competition started or shortly before). Late Stage projects are either already launched on other chains or many months into development. It is up to the discretion of the competition administrators to determine whether projects that fall in the middle of the spectrum are Late Stage or Early Stage.
If you would like to submit your project in your native language that’s completely fine and we can organize a live translation for the live stream at the end of the competition.
