The two previous rounds of our Most Valuable Builder Program (MVB) attracted innovation and progress to the BSC ecosystem. Many participating projects are ranking among the most popular, with some MVB winners dominating the global rankings in DeFi or NFT.
Today, we’re excited to announce the launch of MVB III: Beyond the Big Bang, where we’ll find out who the real MVBs are! At the end of the article you can read more about our MVB Incubation Program which we're preparing for you.
The Most Valuable Builder III: Beyond the Big Bang
Like in the previous rounds, in MVB III, we will go through multiple phases where we will shortlist participating projects based on their performance and other criteria, such as security, community strength, etc. To push for even more significant innovation, the participating projects will compete in a new MVB Monthly Star concept, where we’ll pick only the best-performing projects every month (August, September, October).
As before, at the end of the MVB III, we will end up with only the best of the best. The MVB Top Player projects are the final winning projects of MVB III, and we will announce them in November.
Every season of MVB aims to boost innovation in specific areas essential for further blockchain adoption.
In MVB III: Beyond the Big Bang, the focus is on these areas:
- High-performance infrastructures: Strengthen critical infrastructure and provide services to satisfy large-scale business, including (not limited to) security tooling, API and toolings, Cross-chain DeFi Composition, Privacy Txs/Flashbots, bridging CeFi and DeFi, and more.
- NFT and GamingFi: Pursue mass adoption opportunities through Gaming, Community (Fan) Tokens, Guild DAO, and more.
- Advanced DeFi legos: Build secure, trustless, and holistic DeFi infra to satisfy new DeFi requirements from institutional and professional traders and brokers, including (but not limited to) synthetic assets, real-world assets, efficient AMM, fixed interest rate products, indexing, structural protocols, asset management, and more.
Big Bang Fact: The winners of MVB I, AutoFarm and Beefy, were listed on Binance.com, and MVB II GameFi projects recorded x10 growth after participating in MVB.

Security remains Priority ONE during MVB III
In a continued effort to improve the security of the whole BSC ecosystem, we launched a new joint bounty program on July 26.

Priority ONE incentivizes projects to launch their own bounty programs and rewards those who help us make this fantastic network safer for everyone.
