Acurast Builders Program: An Overview

The Acurast Builders program is a developer-first program designed to nurture talented builders developing apps utilizing Acurast to their advantage. Focused on novel projects that leverage Acurast as an added value.

Acurast is a decentralized and serverless cloud, leveraging mobile devices with robust security primitives and massive compute resources, capable of interacting with every Web3 ecosystem and Web2 applications. Acurast utilizes a dedicated Layer 1 protocol responsible for permissionless access to these resources.

Like Acurast, the builder’s program is ecosystem agnostic and welcomes builders from all ecosystems.

Throughout this program, Builders will gain the experience to build Zero Trust applications.

What are Zero Trust Applications?

A key highlight of the Acurast Builders Program is its commitment to fostering the development of Zero Trust applications.
