Now that the WAX Blockchain is live, we’re launching a $25,000 #BuildOnWAX competition. Duplicate an existing EOS dApp onto WAX or build a brand new one, and you can be one of the three prize winners and earn up to $10,000!

Requirements:

- Duplicate an existing EOS dApp on WAX or build a dApp on WAX

    Prizes:

    Five entrants will win prizes, totalling $25,000.

    1st place: $10,000

    2nd place (two winners): $5,000

    3rd place (two winners): $2,500

      How to enter the #BuildOnWAX competition:

      There will be three entry rounds. To enter for each round (and subsequent rounds if you apply), tweet a link to your project to @wax_io using the hashtag #BuildOnWAX

      Round 1: Enter your project by July 15, 2019 @ 11:59pm EST

      Round 2: All entrants of Round 1 will have until July 22, 2019 @ 11:59pm EST to improve their projects. No new entries will be permitted into this Round - it is only open to participants of Round 1.

      Round 3: Select entrants of Round 2 will have until July 30, 2019 @ 11:59pm EST to improve and finalize their projects. No new entries will be permitted into this Round.

        How to launch EOS dApps on WAX:

        1) Visit account.wax.io and make a WAX Blockchain account (requires linking a Scatter wallet)

        2) Have enough WAX staked in your account to allocate resources

        3) Install the standard cleos developer tool. You can install that following the setup instructions in our main repo: https://github.com/worldwide-asset-exchange/wax-blockchain

        4) Ensure that you have compiled your contract with a compatible CDT. Currently this is EOS CDT 1.4.1

        5) Make an account for your smart contract:

        cleos -u https://chain.wax.io system newaccount <myWAXAccount> <contractAccount> <contractAccountPublicKey> 
        --stake-net '0.50000000 WAX' --stake-cpu '0.50000000 WAX' --buy-ram-kbytes <sufficient RAM for your contract>"
        

        6) Deploy your smart contract:

        cleos set contract <contractAccount> <path to my compiled contract code> <wasm file name>.wasm <abi file name>.abi
        

        These instructions can be performed easily by using dockerized equivalents of these commands. This is demonstrated in our Hello World example which is available here: https://github.com/worldwide-asset-exchange/wax-blockchain/tree/develop/samples/hello-world

          Why WAX didn’t implement REX

          We didn’t implement REX because we believed that doing so would disincentivize people from staking their WAX Tokens since they could simply rent resources cheaper instead.
