Decentraland will be launching the Creator Contest this coming month in celebration of launching their drag and drop Builder. Decentraland, a virtual reality platform with digital assets managed on the Ethereum blockchain, is a place where developers can create and earn from their content and applications. The developers of Decentraland are polishing the final touches of the drag and drop Builder before its official release, and details about the Builder contest were finalized.
Builder and Creator Contest
Decentraland is made up of different virtual real estate plots or parcels of LAND. A plot contains a scene which is comprised of models, textures, sounds, and codes of the three-dimensional LAND. Examples of scenes include a house, a park, a campsite, a medieval castle, or Mars. Scenes can be created with Builder which offers functions of a drag-and-drop interface. This virtual editor comes with a bundle that includes different design aspects and tools for you to use while building your 3D model.
Once the Builder is released to the public for free next month, participants can start creating scenes with it and submit as many as 20 entries of different scenes. A panel of judges including game developers, artists, and designers will examine the submissions, and Deccentraland will feature the best scenes and reward MANA – crypto coins – and LAND to the winners. Specific details regarding the procedures during the contest are yet to be announced, but it is confirmed that you can be rewarded with 100 MANA if your model meets a few basic quality standards. The top 50 best models will be placed to Genesis City, MANA and LAND with the top 5 designs win as high as 200000 MANA and as low as 25000 MANA, and the 45 other creators will be rewarded with 750 MANA.
Contestants should register for the Creator Contest at contest.decentraland.org, which is set to commence on March 15.
