Star Atlas Offers $25,000 in Prizes for Budding Developers

Solana Season Hackathon is underway, and that means prizes are up for grabs. As part of the Hackathon initiative, up-coming space exploration and battle MMO, “Star Atlas”, is sponsoring a prize pool of $25,000 for budding developers. The MO is to design and build a mini-game for entertainment hub Star Atlas Arcade. The Star Atlas Arcade is a hub for community developed mini games. Which will subsequently grow in stature as the community grows.

There will be $18k worth of prizes divided among the top three participants. Additionally, $7k will be available for winners of category-specific awards. Victors will then be immortalised for all eternity and displayed within the Star Atlas website. In order to participate, simply build your project and then open a pull request in the Star Atlas git repository.

Star Atlas is an up-coming grand-strategy, space exploration and combat MMO. Based on the Unreal Engine 5 and hosted on the Solana blockchain, Star Atlas pledges to be as beautiful as it is epic. A marriage of traditional core game and blockchain mechanics, the game will utilise NFTs to create an economy with the tangibility of real-world asset ownership.

Star Atlas is also holding a live NFT workshop on Twitch as part of the Solano Hackathon. The workshop commences today, May 7th at 9am PST.
