EasyA has announced that it is joining hands with Ripple. The goal is to empower developers with knowledge, enabling them to understand how XRP Ledger’s integration with EVM will function. Developers will then be able to leverage the integration’s potential and develop efficient dApps and use cases. EasyA has already launched learning modules. They are live on the EasyA application. They are in the form of seven new learning challenges.
Completing the same will benefit the community at a broader level. Access to a massive pool of talent will be available, allowing members to unlock opportunities from the groundbreaking technology.
Phil Kwok, the co-founder of EasyA, has called this a special moment, adding that the community will now have a chance to learn about the integration and also pitch their ideas to secure funding in the upcoming hackathon.
The EasyA x XRP Ledger Hackathon is scheduled to happen in April 2024. The date is yet to be announced, but it is now known that the hackathon features prize money worth $25,000. Top builders additionally qualify for mentorship sessions, more funding, and opportunities to secure grants within the XRP Ledger ecosystem.
Minor details about the event surface at a time when the educational campaign is being promoted with the hashtag #60DaysOfXRPL. Only top developers participating in the learning campaign will make it to the hackathon.
Markus Infanger, the Senior Vice President of RippleX, has also commented on the partnership. Markus has called this a major step to bring in a fresh cohort of developers. They have further added that the partnership taps into their strong crypto community, which helps them bring out informative resources for developers across the world.
The community has responded positively to EasyA’s announcement on X. Most members have said they are looking forward to this learning opportunity.
That said, Ripple’s native token is still experiencing a free fall despite the recent decline of 4.16% in the last 24 hours. XRP was seen exchanging hands at $0.5099. The slip further reflects a drop of 0.78% and 17.28% in the last 7 days and 30 days, respectively. XRP could take a while to bounce back and as per our XRP prediction, it is predicted to cross the $0.90 mark by the end of this year.
Launching learning modules could yield results before that. Ripple and EasyA are eyeing ways to attract thousands of developers and boost the ecosystem. The more empowered the next generation of developers is, the better they will build on the upcoming integration of XRP Ledger with EVM programmability.
Both have expressed their commitment to supporting innovations and expanding the programmability of the XRP Ledger.
EasyA already houses a community of more than 750,000 developers. It also houses visionaries and founders, along with partnerships with 300+ blockchain clubs of top universities like Harvard and MIT, plus Cambridge, to name a few. Ultimately, everything is headed in an in-person hackathon after the learning campaign concludes.
