Git in the Game: 2,020 XRP Giveaway for GitHub Users

Last week, we alluded to a large-scale, upcoming developer giveaway, targeted at GitHub users. As of today, it’s here!

The giveaway follows Ripple recently open-sourcing. Our goal with the giveaway is to help developers experiment with the network and start building interesting things with it.

Who Qualifies?

We’re giving away 2,020 XRP (as a tribute to tomorrow’s Ripple Developer Conference at Money2020) to GitHub account holders who have at least one public code-writing activity before May 1, 2013, 00:00:00 UTC.

Accounts that have watched or starred the ripple-clientripple-lib, or rippled repositories as of October 3, 2013, 21:15:00 UTC are eligible for 4,040 XRP.

Please note that these rules are subject to change without notice.

How Does It Work?

It’s very easy. By authenticating with GitHub, you’ll receive a giveaway code (or two if you qualify). Go here to begin.

Lastly, a note about privacy: While Ripple is by nature pseudonymous, we respect your right to determine the level of privacy you wish to ensure for yourself. Therefore, this giveaway has been constructed in such a way as to obscure the connection between your GitHub account and your Ripple address. We invite you to inspect the source of the giveaway client to see how this is done. That’s also why we recommend that you wait at least 24 hours between receiving your code and redeeming it. (But if you’re really anxious, you can redeem your code right away.)
