The contest, which began this morning, April 25, 2018, at 9:00 a.m. EST, will run until 11:59 p.m. on June 25, 2018. The winning project will be announced on June 29, 2018, and awarded $50,000.<br/></p><p>“We’re really thrilled to be able to partner with ShapeShift for this bounty and to build on the success of the bounty program so far. This is something that speaks directly to the crypto community, who inherently understand the motivations behind decentralized applications,” Xan Ditkoff, a Growth Partner at Blockstack, told <i>Bitcoin Magazine</i>.</p><p>As with past Signature Bounty competitions, the focus here is to build a decentralized application (DApp), in this case, a decentralized universal wallet. This campaign, however, has a special focus on interoperability and cooperation, as Blockstack’s partnership with ShapeShift suggests.</p><p>“Increased interoperability and collaboration between projects will only hasten the pace of innovation — and making each project’s atomic unit of value accessible across communities is critical,” a Blockstack <a href="https://blockstack.org/blog/blockstack-shapeshift-50-000-for-a-universal-wallet-app">blog post</a> reads. “That’s why we are partnering with <a href="http://shapeshift.io/">ShapeShift</a> to enable an open source wallet where users can hold and exchange most, if not all current and future forms of tokens, all in a decentralized manner.”</p><p>A successful project, the post continues to reveal, will feature a synergy of Blockstack’s storage, authentication and encryption functions with ShapeShift’s token exchange API. Additionally, serious submissions must be open sourced and accommodate all or most coins and tokens, including custom tokens that haven’t been created yet.</p><p>The end game for this bounty, as its name suggests, is to create a universal, easy-to-use wallet that combines the security features of Blockstack alongside the seamless token-swapping mechanisms of ShapeShift. </p><p>Creating a universal, low-barrier-to-entry wallet is essential, Ditkoff explained, and it should be comparable to current online financial management systems.</p><p>“Having to go back and forth from wallet to wallet to access or exchange different tokens is onerous. For people with little knowledge of cryptocurrency to adopt this tech, it needs to be simple, beautiful, and frictionless.”</p><h4>The Community Component</h4><p>Since September 2017, Blockstack has made a commitment with its Signature Bounties to curate decentralized applications that work toward providing an accessible experience for users of all levels of technical literacy.

The contest, which began this morning, April 25, 2018, at 9:00 a.m. EST, will run until 11:59 p.m. on June 25, 2018.
