Contest Name: Royal Canadian Mint MintChip Challenge

Contest Start and End: Just Launched (Apr. 4th) The submission deadline for applications is July 11, 2012, at 5 p.m. EST. 
Judging and public voting will begin on August 1, 2012 at 10 a.m. EST, and will end August 29, 2012 at 5 p.m. EST. Winners will be announced on or around October 3, 2012.

Contest Entry Fee: $0 FREE ENTRY (Open to Canada and USA)

Contest Description: Why is the Royal Canadian Mint holding the MintChip Challenge?
The Royal Canadian Mint launched the MintChip Challenge to enlist the help of software developers in creating proofs of concept highlighting the potential advantages of the MintChip technology. Why MintChip and how does it work? MintChip can be characterized as an evolution of physical money, with the benefits of being electronic. MintChip is based on two technical propositions: the creation of secure integrated circuit chips to hold electronic value and a secure protocol that allows the transfer of value from one chip to another and ensures the integrity of the MintChip system. It operates without the need for personal identification, thereby maintaining the user’s privacy. MintChip security tokens can be stored in many ways: on MicroSD cards, on USB sticks, or remotely in the cloud, with no physical access to the token.

PLATFORM: Android, Blackberry, a desktop or mobile browser, or Windows

Contest PRIZES: Over $50,000 in Prizes

Thank you! Apparently we are among only 500 developers from North America who were allowed into the contest!

I pray God gives us a great success on this one, it would also benefit ShiVa if we were to win as our app will be made using ShiVa ofcourse :)
