Individual and enterprise developers will be granted the opportunity to create CBDC applications and compete for substantial prize money. The primary objective of the challenge is to encourage the creation or enhancement of fintech and payments solutions utilizing Ripple's service.

The challenge itself comprises two distinct phases: Phase I involves building an application on the public XRP Ledger, while Phase II focuses on constructing applications on Ripple's Private CBDC Platform.

What makes this competition particularly noteworthy is the esteemed lineup of judges. Esteemed professionals from renowned institutions such as Mastercard, Bank of Finland, Digital Euro Association, DXC Technology, Amazon Web Services, BIS, PwC and The Digital Dollar Project will collaborate with Ripple to select the most innovative solutions.
