9 March 1993 [a cypherpunk manifesto](https://www.google.com/url?sa=t&rct=j&q=&esrc=s&source=web&cd=&cad=rja&uact=8&ved=2ahUKEwig1rHLvo_qAhWDfXAKHRs4BRcQFjAAegQIBBAB&url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.activism.net%2Fcypherpunk%2Fmanifesto.html&usg=AOvVaw3JpJrCgSrajiM3Nmruakbd)
The immediate priority for Decred is to attract top development talent, cryptography experts, instead of marketing, or educating novice users.
To popularize decred among top developers and cryptographers, a Decred CypherPunk Prize was established to honor papers or program libraries important to cryptography or cryptocurrency.
Open source is generally facing a lack of long-term funds, through Decred Cypherpunk Prize to highlight the sustainable characteristic of Decred.
To attract more developers to decred or become decred contractors.
Prize objects include: basic crypto-related program packages or libraries, crypto-currency papers, etc. But not contractors.
Bonus: $100K equivalent of decred(pay decred).
Date: February 8 (decred Mainnet Genesis Block minted)
one winners per year.
For example, the [noise protocol](https://noiseprotocol.org/) is used for [lightning network](https://github.com/lightningnetwork/lightning-rfc/blob/master/08-transport.md), [wireguard(next generation VPN)](https://www.wireguard.com/), [I2P](https://geti2p.net/spec/ntcp2) and many other important projects, and [coinshuffle++](https://decred.org/research/ruffing2016.pdf) is used for [decred CSPP](https://github.com/decred/cspp), so it may got rewarded.
At present the programme is only a draft and comments are welcome.
Since My native language is not English, maybe someone take my place to refine this proposal and submit it to the Politeia.
comments are welcome.
