The herd together strong.
BlackPool is thrilled to be partnering with Stake Dao for The Animal Kingdom Art Contest! Be you a BlackPool Ape or a Stake DAO Elephant, we share the same objectives: learning about Decentralised Finance and being our own bank!
Stake DAO is a non-custodial platform accessible to anyone, that allows you to easily grow, track, and control your assets right from your wallet. Its recently launched Stake DAO Academy is a powerful resource to learn about the decentralised world, from blockchain protocols to Decentralised Finance.
Thanks to the Blackpool Academy scholarship system, hundreds of men and women around the world are playing-to-earn. This has opened a new era of unprecedented possibilities, allowing BlackPool scholars to not only earn an income, but also develop their economy and make a difference for people around them!
Our partnership with Stake DAO will allow Blackpool scholars to educate themselves in the world of decentralised finance through the Stake DAO Academy. They will be able to deposit funds into Stake DAO strategies where they can begin to earn passive income through the best yielding strategies in DeFi.
Our communities have actively been producing art pieces centered around either protocol, so, to celebrate their creative talents Stake DAO and BlackPool are joining forces to bring you The Art Contest!
The Art Contest
Creativity cannot be constrained so the task is simple, create art that displays the BlackPool Ape and the Stake DAO Elephant in the same scene!
The grand total prize is $2,750* (to be divided between the 10 winners) and a BlackPool academy scholarship for Axie Infinity combined with a Stake DAO sponsorship for a 100% share to the scholar over the first 3 months (instead of the 70/30 share for traditional scholarships). This represents approximately $150 per months on top of the BlackPool Scholarship.
To be eligible, users will need to develop an original art work, digital or other, that clearly displays the Ape and Elephant.
