Scrypto Developer Program Incentives | The Radix Blog | Radix DLT
With the launch of the Babylon Mainnet Upgrade on September 28th, a significant milestone was achieved for the Radix ecosystem. The upgrade introduced smart contract functionality to the Radix mainnet, opening up endless exciting possibilities for developers and the entire community. This development has paved the way for new opportunities and incentives within Scrypto’s Developer Program.
Scrypto started its journey with the Alexandria launch, offering a platform for developers to explore and create innovative solutions. The Developer Program, initiated during this phase, aimed to motivate developers to submit their blueprints (link to what blueprints are) by offering a reward of $75 in XRD for successful blueprint acceptance.
As Scrypto continues to grow, so does the enthusiasm and feedback from the developer community. Now that Babylon is live, learning Scrypto is a skill you’ll want to have, not only for contributing to the success of the Radix ecosystem but also to expand your horizons as a Web3 developer. As a result, Radix has plans to re-ignite the Developer Program, offering significant incentives and opportunities to fuel your journey.
Important note: incentives are not grants. The incentives are there to reward developers who are using Scrypto and support the community with great code examples. RDX Works officially launched its first grants program in 2023. Register to the Developer Program to receive all updates about upcoming Radix Grants programs.
