Binance Launches The Most Valuable Builder (MVB) Accelerator Program


Are you considering implementing BSC into your project? Are you an existing BSC project? Apply to our MVB Accelerator Program and get a chance to receive funding, expert support, and access to the ever-growing BSC ecosystem. 

To bolster the cryptopreneurial community and provide more support to builders innovating on the BNB Smart Chain (BSC), we’re launching the Most Valuable Builder Accelerator (MVB) Program under the $100M DeFi Accelerator Fund to bridge the worlds of DeFi and CeFi. The program’s main aim is to help BSC-based startups create new and exciting innovations, gain industry exposure, receive funding, and accelerate community and business growth. 

The program is split into three phases, where eligible projects that enter phase 2 can receive up to $10,000 in funding, while projects that reach phase 3 can receive up to $100,000 investment. The top selected projects will also receive up to $2 million in liquidity incentive.

We actively support the global blockchain developer community and currently run many programs around BNB Smart Chain (BSC) such as Hackerlink BSC Grant, Future Is Now, Build for Bharat, Gitcoin Hackathon, and more

Who is the MVB program for? 

We invite all developers building on BSC or integrating BSC with their project to participate in the MVB program. DeFi, dApps, and blockchain-based projects, including applicants from the BUIDL Reward program, Gitcoin, Quadratic Grant Fund, and existing hackathons hosted by BSC, are also invited to participate. 

How do I apply for the MVB program?

MVB is an extension of our BUIDL Reward program. Startups can apply with a quick BSC smart contract deployment. 

Complete the following steps to register for the MVB program:

1. Deploy your smart contract on BNB Smart Chain

2. Call the “registerContract” function from the deployer address (Use Metamask, BNB Chain Wallet, or other compatible wallets)

The contract creator should specify the contract address and the address to receive the reward. (Note: The address to receive the rewards must be an EOA address.)

3. Verify the contact registration

The reward calculation will start immediately if the registration is valid. The contract creator can update the reward address without affecting the reward calculation by calling this method again.

The contract creator should specify the contract address and the address to receive the reward. (Note: The address to receive the rewards must be an EOA address.)

This method aims to provide an interface for contract creators to confirm that their registry information is right. Contract creators can query the checked registry information (latest reward address and registry height) via BSCscan.

Note: If you can see the contract output with the correct reward address, then it means the registration has succeeded; otherwise, it means the registration has failed.
