Join the BeL2 Video Competition: Showcase Your Skills & Win 500 ELA!

BeL2 Competition

We’re excited to announce a unique competition for video creators to support the understanding of Elastos’ new Bitcoin Layer 2 solution, BeL2. BeL2 is crucial because it significantly improves Bitcoin by enhancing transaction speed and capacity, enabling complex EVM smart contracts, and providing greater privacy with zero-knowledge proofs. These advancements address Bitcoin’s core limitations in scalability and limited programmability, thus broadening its applications in decentralized finance and digital transactions, all while maintaining its fundamental principles of security and decentralization. Here’s your chance to share your knowledge, showcase your skills, and potentially win 500 ELA!

  • #1 The best explainer video will earn 500 ELA, at today’s value worth more than $1,500!

  • #3 Third winner gets 25 ELA
  • Starting Date: The competition begins today, on January 2, 2024.
  • Deadline: Submit your entries by midnight on February 3, 2024.
  • Judging: Community-elected Cyber Republic DAO council members will evaluate the submissions through off-chain voting.
