An NFT submission should focus on tooling around the management, creation and utilization of NFTs. As an example, an NFT Platform, NFT Creation Tooling and anything related to the management of NFTs. An NFT Collection can also be submitted but must stand out and be highly unique to pass judging criteria.

Tooling

A tooling submission must focus on bringing additional tooling to the Stratis Platform, such as an SDK that caters for an alternative programming language, or as another example, a wallet implementation.

The judges will be asking: does the tool provide a useful function, is it easy and engaging to use, is it doing something innovative, how well does the product function? Submissions can cover any kind of software application, such as the web, cloud, personal computer, mobile device or console, but they must utilise Stratis Smart Contracts in C#.

What to Submit

A demo video, completed submission form that includes a URL to the functional application (if applicable), AND includes a URL to the public code repository with a valid README containing the setups steps.

  • Creativity
    How innovative is the idea? Is this a new approach? If applicable, does the entry tell a story, build a brand or have some personal flavour?
