Update - 18 April 2024

Greetings, meme coin enthusiasts and blockchain adventurers! 

As the meme coin season is gaining momentum, we're thrilled to announce the “BNB Chain Meme Innovation Battle,” an exciting opportunity for developers and the community to unleash their creativity and compete for amazing rewards.

Please be aware that as of April 18, 2024, we've introduced the Trade Airdrop Rewards Competition. The initial $1M prize pool is now divided between two competition streams. As a result, the prize pool allocations and reward distribution have been updated accordingly. Additionally, we have lowered the trading volume requirements for the Meme Innovation Competition's dynamic reward pool.

Please take a moment to familiarize yourself with the updated terms and conditions.  Updated sections are highlighted in bold.

Two Streams To Enhance Inclusivity

To ensure that the broader community has the opportunity to participate, we've adjusted the competition to feature two streams: 

  1. Meme Innovation Competition
  2. Trade for Airdrop Rewards Competition

Meme Innovation Competition

The competition's core mission remains unchanged: to inspire creators to unleash their creativity with meme coins within the BNB Chain ecosystem. However, we've made adjustments to the prize pool (now reaching a maximum of $500,000) to accommodate the new Trade for Airdrop Rewards Competition stream.
