[Arweave x Grow Ethereum]
💰 Bounty: Crowdfunding DApp
Prize: $1,600 in ETH
The challenge is to create a crowdfunding application where the backend is an Ethereum smart contract, and the frontend is an application hosted on Arweave. This creates a completely decentralized crowdfunding app with a verifiable and immutably published project plan.
📝 Bounty: ENS + Arweave
Prize: $1,600 in ETH
ENS offers a secure and decentralized way to address resources both on and off the Ethereum blockchain using simple, human-readable names. ENS is built on smart contracts on the Ethereum blockchain and currently works with IPFS, Onion and BZZ. This prize is for the best integration for ENS + the Arweave ecosystem.
