Then have we got something for you!

We’re challenging devs to find 5 areas for optimization within a Scilla smart contract, with prizes of $1000, $750 and $500 USD in ZIL for the best three entries.

Want to take part? Here’s everything you need to know:


To take part, send an email to [email protected] with your full name, Telegram and Discord IDs, as well as your country of origin.

The three winning entrants will be asked for their wallet details to award their prize at the conclusion of the contest.

Note: This challenge is for individuals only and is not team-based.


Registered entrants will be sent a Scilla smart contract that contains 5 bugs/areas for optimization that need to be rectified. Entrants will need to identify the issues and explain why they require changing, as well as propose a solution to each of the issues.

The smart contract for the competition will be sent to registered entrants at 10am CET on Saturday, October 15 and competitors will have one week to work on their solutions.


The deadline to submit entries is 10am CET on Saturday, October 22.

All entries should be submitted by email as an attached txt file that includes the name of the entrant (for example john_smith.txt).


The three best entries will be awarded their prizes in ZIL:

·         1st Place - $1000 USD in ZIL
·         2nd Place - $750 USD in ZIL
·         3rd Place - $500 USD in ZIL

Names of the winning entrants will be published on social media, unless entrants specifically request that their name not be published.
