Note: Each completed social task counts for one point.

We implemented AlphaQuest, the task monitoring product from our partners at Alpha Guilty, to host our campaign page, track task completion, and ensure a transparent points collection and leaderboard system.

How to Win

To win the ‘dApp and Dash’ campaign, you must have met the following requirements:

  1. Deployed a dApp on Rootstock Mainnet from the Forward Marketplace.
  2. At least 300 completed transactions on the deployed dApp (Each completed transaction counts for three points).

You can launch a maximum of three dApp entries from a single Alpha Guilty account. Each deployed dApp will be regarded as a separate entry in the contest.

[10/12/23] Updated: Due to technical limitations and in the interest of rewarding as many of our community members as possible, all dApps and their corresponding points will be summed and that sum (along with the points from other tasks) will determine their scoreboard position.
