March has seen many interesting new developments for the Stratis community. From the launch of the Astroverse NFT Club Pass to the conclusion of Stratis’ third hackathon, it’s been a month full of exciting NFT and blockchain news, and we look forward to sharing a snapshot of this month’s highlights as well as an insight into what is yet to come.
Stratis Build Hackathon – prize winners announced!
This month, Stratis announced the prize winners for the Stratis Build Hackathon, the third hackathon in Stratis’ history. Over 500 participants took part in creating some truly innovative solutions using blockchain technology, and we expect to see some of the winning entries develop further into exciting new projects in the future.
The Grand Prize Winner is Silver, described by its creator Allister Beharry as a static analyzer and formal verifier for Stratis smart contracts. Silver works at the source code level and the bytecode level to offer security-focused insights into smart contracts, and the Stratis team were deeply impressed by Silver’s proposed contribution to the smart contract ecosystem. Congratulations once again to Allister and this hackathon’s prize winners.
The Astroverse NFT Club Pass has launched

It wouldn’t be a month at Stratis without new NFT collections, launches, and giveaways to reveal. The Opdex NFT collection will launch on Stratisphere next week as a limited-edition collection formed by 250 NFTs.

Simplex enables its users to access the widest range of payment measures possible, making it simpler than ever to purchase STRAX through whichever medium suits you best.
My XR Gallery
One interesting and creative proposal approved by Stratis Masternode operators last year was ‘My XR Gallery’, an offering from Polycarbon Games that allows users to create their own galleries through which they can interact, view, and trade NFTs in the marketplace. This month, Polycarbon Games announced some exciting developments to My XR Gallery, with the platform now able to display 2D and 3D NFTs from IPFS, making it more accessible and easy-to-use.
With a new website set to launch soon, My XR Gallery is on its way to being a hub of creative NFT activity, and we look forward to watching it develop.
Finally, Stratisphere has hopped onto a new platform this month: TikTok. With the Stratisphere community constantly growing and evolving, TikTok is a fun and fast-paced way to keep in contact in the social media sphere.
