zkIgnite – $250K MINA prize pool: Build, Test & Deploy zkApps on Mina Protocol (testnet)

There’s still time to join the new zkIgnite, Cohort O, but don’t hang around, stage one (or actually stage 0) ends in two weeks on December the 15th. Entrants can complete tutorials based around snarkyJS and potentially win rewards from a $250k MINA prize pool. Last week the code was downloaded over several thousand times and the Mina Discord channel has been a hive of activity from developers and team members working together, buidling and stress testing the code and learning the huge potential zkApps can provide in many real-life use case situations.
