Three weeks to go— bonus tech tip!

There are three weeks remaining in the Stratis Smart Contract Challenge. Submissions are due December 16, 2019 before 5pm GMT (12pm EDT). (Find out what time that is in your city)

Start your submission now

Starting a submission is a good way to make sure that your skill meets the requirements and you get the basic fields of the submission form nailed down. There’s nothing worse than getting to the deadline, only to realize that you’re missing a key component. Remember: once you submit a project, you can keep editing it as needed at any time prior to the submission deadline. Need a primer on how the submission form works?
