Binance has opted to invest $5 million in BNB into the BUIDL reward program. This comes in a bid from the exchange to incentivize greater development of dApps within the Binance Smart Chain. This stands as a facet of an overarching venture Binance is doing, planning to inject $100 million into a DeFi accelerator fund, one aiming to connect decentralized finance (DeFi) with centralized finance (CeFi) solutions.
To further encourage the development of the dApp ecosystem on #BinanceSmartChain, we have committed $5 million USD worth of #BNB to the newly-launched Binance Smart Chain #BUIDL Reward Program.https://t.co/JaxvU8qNgj

BUIDL-ing BSC’s Popularity
The BUIDL reward program is one of those steps. This latest tool is built to reward developers that deploy usable decentralized applications (dApps) within the Binance Smart Chain. This BUIDL reward program will come in the form of a rebate.
The announcement itself details some of the more complex aspects of it. First off, Binance has reserved the right to adjust the program according to how the Binance Smart Chain (BSC) develops. Binance states that this will allow for the best possible support for those wishing to be pioneers within the BSC.
Terms And Conditions
As for the rules of how a user can get a rebate, there are three extensive ones. The first rule is that any individual deploying callable smart contracts is capable of registering their smart contract address within the BSC. Within this registration period, the BSC will request both the smart contract address, as well as the reward receiver address, should the participant qualify. As for the relevant contact addresses for users to check the results of their registration, doing so by way of smart contracts, this will be announced on the fifteenth of October.
Alongside this, all the gas fees from transactions that call this registered smart contract, will have a certain percentage of it accumulated as a reward for the developer itself. BSC will calculate all the gas fees, including that of first-level contracts, as the dApps themselves serve to drive blockchain usage.
$5 Million Up For Grabs
All rewards will be, of course, paid by way of BNB, Binance’s namesake token. Payments will be made monthly, sent to the registered receiver address, during the program’s duration. These payments will occur as long as the reward for the contract is more than 2 BNB in total. Binance will also give a detailed explanation in regards to reward distribution and accumulation by way of its website, binance.org.
As it stands now, Binance is planning for the first distribution to occur at the end of October, 2020, giving a reward percentage of 30% for 2020’s entirety. However, the group did stipulate that this will only apply as long as the allocated $5 million still holds, and the incentive project will stop once it runs out of money.
