FAQ
You:
Ok, so what is a Bitcoin Layer 2 Pitch Competition?
Us:
This is an event where developers and innovators come together to build and showcase projects that leverage the Bitcoin Layer 2, Stacks blockchain.

You:
Who can participate?
Us:
The pitch competition is open to developers, designers, builders, and anyone interested in creating Layer 2 solutions for Bitcoin using Stacks.

While teams are not required, teams are allowed to form during the event or before the event, as well as participating individually.

While it definitely doesn’t hurt to have prior experience, it's not at all required. This competition encourages beginners to participate and will offer resources and mentors on ground to help you learn and build throughout the event.
You:
Where should I submit my entry?
Us:
Right here!
You:
What are Layer 2 Solutions for Bitcoin?
Us:
Layer 2 (L2) solutions are secondary protocols or networks built on top of the Bitcoin blockchain to improve scalability, speed, and reduce transaction fees. While there are a few Bitcoin L2s out there, this competition will focus on the Bitcoin L2 Stacks.

Clarity is the smart contract language used for Bitcoin L2 Stacks. Clarity brings smart contracts to Bitcoin. It is a decidable language, so you can know, with certainty, from the code itself what the program will do.
Build. Bitcoin. Repeat.
