Two months ago, we put out a call for trailblazers who were up to the challenge of being among the first to build applications using N3. More than 670 developers signed up to answer that call — and we were blown away by the results.
All up, participants submitted 60 plans and 58 projects during the competition. These dApps used many of N3’s new features, such as native oracles and NeoFS, demonstrating functionality that was never before possible on a single chain.
Our contestants were also the first to use the many tools developed by our global community, including the Neo Blockchain Toolkit, the Neo Python Suite, Neow3j, and many more. In doing so, they provided critical feedback that will help improve Neo’s developer experience and provided real-world dApp examples that will benefit the next wave of N3 pioneers.
The final results were extremely close, with some of the awards determined by mere fractions of a point. We are extremely proud of everyone who took part in the event and hope you all continue to build your projects in the Neo ecosystem.
In the end, we could only award 11 projects. However, with the emergence of such a wide range of fantastic projects, it is clear that there is a bright future ahead for the Neo N3 blockchain.
Now, it is time to announce the winners:Major Awards
