Web3.0 Bootcamp is a training and incubation program co-hosted by Parity, Web3 Foundation, Wanxiang Blockchain and New Chainbase and designed to encourage blockchain innovation. First held in 2020, Web3.0 Bootcamp has been leveraging the resources of Wanxiang Blockchain ecosystem and Polkadot global ecosystem to support Web3.0 startups in technology, product, capital, cooperation, etc. We hope this will help the startups to grow and contribute to the sustainable development of Web3 ecosystem.
In previous Web3.0 Bootcamps, we provided selected teams with such support as technology instruction, professional mentors, demo day, marketing etc. Acala, Moonbeam, Astar and other teams made the best of these resources and grew into star projects in Polkadot ecosystem.
Apart from projects focusing on parachain and crosschain interoperability, 2022 Web3.0 Bootcamp also welcomes application projects to join us and will offer the selected team the opportunities to interact with influential investors and community heads around the world, which will hopefully help selected teams and projects to expand their global presence.
Hao Yunkun, Senior Director of Wanxiang Blockchain, said: “It takes great efforts to hold Web3.0 Bootcamp for the third year running. We welcome all talented Web3 projects to apply for 2022 Web3.0 Bootcamp and hope that go all out to help the selected teams to grow.”
Meanwhile, Helena, Head of Parity Asia Pacific, talked about the latest development of Polkadot and elaborated on the selection criteria of 2022 Web3.0 Bootcamp. She mentioned that using Substrate to develop and launch chains is no doubt the best technology choice for blockchain developers and hence naturally Substrate will bring more and more quality projects to Polkadot ecosystem. Therefor it is not a surprise that we would see the number of Web 3.0 infrastrctural projects increasing in Polkadot ecosystem as they most likely develop chains based on Substrate.
As for 2022 Web3.0 Bootcamp, Helena introduced that this bootcamp was one of Parity and Web3 Foundation’s major initiatives to support talented developers and promising projects so as to maintain the sustainable development of the whole ecosystem. In Web3.0 Bootcamp, the selected teams would get all-round support, from product, technology, communication to marketing, which would help to turn their projects to real business.
We welcome all teams and projects that are interested in building the Polkadot and Substrate ecosystem and need professional support to accelerate the development to apply for 2022 Web3.0 Bootcamp.
