Today, the APENFT Marketplace Developer Sprint kicks off, following the Marketplace Testnet launch.
APENFT Marketplace has positioned a $2 million prize pool to aid outstanding NFT developers, reward teams who build the finest NFT projects, and diversify the broad NFT ecosystems.
The APENFT Marketplace Developer Sprint marks the first step to shaping a TRON-powered NFT ecosystem. As the platform’s testnet arrives, APENFT Marketplace will become a hub for diverse NFT products with a smooth user experience. Sources reveal that APENFT Marketplace will welcome its mainnet launch in mid-April with a global virtual launch event.
During the Sprint, all teams must complete tasks within the allotted time frame. Apart from project development, smart contract deployment, and website building, the APENFT team will also assess the teams’ ability to operate their community and social media accounts. As APENFT Marketplace is still in its initial stage, they hope to receive their entrants’ feedback and suggestions after testing. In addition, these suggestions for the platform are a vital component of the assessment.
The APENFT Marketplace team will conduct a two-week assessment. Each team can win up to $20,000. The Marketplace will also offer participating teams subsidies on gas fees needed for their NFT works to go on-chain, cutting development costs.
APENFT Marketplace is also planning auxiliary incentive campaigns that offer additional benefits for unique, high-quality projects in this Sprint to supercharge the growth of NFT ecosystems on the platform.
This Developer Sprint has received robust support from the TRON community. As a result, APENFT will hold an open Q&A session on the TRON DAO Forum, answering Marketplace and Sprint-related questions to educate community members on the platform and the contest from April 11 to 13. During this session, APENFT will reward 50 users asking the best questions with perks and swags.
