The simple Ledger protocol virtual hackathon was concluded on September 30 with the top three software developers being awarded. The first-place prize went to the Project ignite team. Their Project, which was known by the name of hamingja is an untradeable SLP token that employs checkdatasig covenants, thereby allowing a loyalty points system. The runners-up and third place teams came up with an SLP paper wallet generator and a full client-side SLP management system, respectively.
The simple Ledger protocol has over the years been growing in terms of popularity. The just-concluded hackathon saw developers code with the tokens average in a bid to push for the creation of innovative ideas. The SLP enjoyed the sponsorship of cryptocurrency operations such as Satoshi’s Angels among others.
It saw numerous participants, including bluewire, cryptopandas, Dune squad, and many more. Each team was given a limit in terms of size, with the maximum number of members of a team being six and all of the projects created by the teams had to be around the simple Ledger protocol.
The dictates of the rules further insisted that “all teams should be present in the chart for the event and should have their GitHub connected.”
The teams were remarkably from all over the world and used an official SLPVH token to undertake to vote on the best Project, which gave the hackathon a unique system for voting on the contest. Participating teams had to vote for other SLPVH projects but could not vote on a project of their own.
Following the rules, Project ignite won the first place prize by gathering 2834 votes with their loyalty points system. As per the specifications, the Project used “SLP transactions combined with BCH checkdatasig covenants” which proved very imperative in the creation of non-tradable tokens. Project ignite’s website shows how SLP loyalty points are long lasting, flexible, and thereby credible.
The second-place team, which was known as bitCHslap, had a total of 1535 votes, following the creation of a customizable client-side SLP wallet generator. The paper wallet is available on the team’s website, and a video demo is also available. Alongside the demo, the creators also posted another video on how to change templates of the wallets. Similar to a traditional paper wallet or address generator, people or users will have to download the local copy and run the program on an offline machine. This is done with the aim of ensuring better security. The creation of an SLP paper wallet creator enables users to meet and engage in the distribution of SLP token-based bearer Bond instruments.
Team Pitico’s full client-side SLP management system managed to clinch the third place with a neat 1389 votes on the contest. The open-source documentation makes a point of explaining that the platform is a “full client-side web app for creating and managing your SLP tokens in a user-friendly way.” The Project’s developers detailed in the repository that the platform is still in its early phases and insists that the Project can be used in the creation, minting, transfer, and importation of wallets and also the changing of the REST APIs. Interested parties can engage with the platform by visiting the website pitico.cash or build and run the app in development mode.
