Once accepted, participants who choose to #BUIDL are directed to login here at Devfolio where project submission, bounty details, and other information relevant to competing in the BUIDLathon and ColoradoJam will be hosted.

In addition to the 4th consecutive year for ETHDenver, we’re excited to announce ColoradoJam, a collaboration with the State of Colorado, which will involve bounties, prizes and investments for addressing crucial problems and initiatives throughout Colorado state agencies. Between both events, prizes, bounties and investments are expected to be $250,000+.
