Mass adoption is the goal for any cryptocurrency and blockchain today as the industry continues to grow steadily in technical development and market prices. However, the advertising and marketing seen today does not focus on the developers’ community as much as the investors.
Waves Platform (WAVES) is changing the narrative as they introduce a ‘1000 WAVES coins competition’ to encourage more developers to share their projects with the core development team.
The competition will be based on Twitter where developers will share their current projects under the hashtag, #BuildOnWaves.
The #BuildOnWaves competition
The Waves platform development team launched the #BuildOnWaves competition to boost the development of decentralized apps on the blockchain. The competition is set to encourage developers to share details of their projects and experiences with Waves technology and products.
