Hey there Tronics, here we go again!
For those that are unfamiliar with TRON HackaTRON, did you know that anyone can win prizes in our HackaTRON S4, even if you’re not a coder? All you have to do is stay engaged and participate in the forum discussions. We’re excited to see what ideas you bring to the table
According to the HackaTRON S4 rules:
The community contributor bonus prize will be awarded to individuals who did not win another prize. Up to 10 individuals may split the 5,000 USDD prize pool with a minimum of 500 USDD/per person.
Here are some tips for those that want to get a community contributors prize:
- Take a look at the HackaTRON Season 4 projects that have already been posted on the forum and leave some questions to learn more about their hackathon projects.
- Be a helpful community member by answering any questions that others may have here.
- If you come across any spam or scam posts, you can flag them for the admin to review.
- Keep asking questions and helping out others after the project submission period before the community contributor winners are picked.
- You can also offer your knowledge by creating a guide, useful tips, video tutorials, or anything else that may benefit the community or hackathon participants.
Furthermore, for this season’s hackathon, we’ve been advised to take a step back and let the community come together and help each other out organically. By doing so, we’ll be able to see members who are truly enthusiastic and dedicated to the cause. We are sure that the hackathon admin team has already taken note of these outstanding individuals. Kudos!
Anyway, let’s start with two hackathon-related topics now.
Q. We know that S4 has added two new tracks eco-builder track for existing hackathon projects to participate in and an eco-friendly track for projects that have a positive impact on the environment. From the look at the projects submitted so far on https://dorahacks.io/hackathon/hackatrons4/ it seems like the eco-friendly track is still not getting a lot of momentum yet. What new track can you recommend for the next season and what’s the reason behind it?
Q. Apart from Devpost and Dorahacks, what other hackathon platform do you think TRON DAO should try out in the future?
Q. If it’s possible to have an offline hackathon event in the US, where would you like to see it held? How should an in-person hackathon be hosted to make it more interesting/challenging?
Q. Currently, we are still seeing a lack of community engagement from project participants. What advice can you give to project teams participating in the recent hackathon to get more exposure and gain more community support?
Q. Do you think having a builder track is useful? Builder track allows existing hackathon participants from previous seasons to join a specific track to keep developing their existing projects. Why and why not?
Q. Did you notice any projects missing from the community poll for S4 that you think should be up there? While the Hackathon team has rules to ensure fair participation, we still want to hear from you! Please note that some projects may not have made the list due to these rules. However, those projects that didn’t make the list still have a chance to win one of 3 Determination Prizes of 5,000 USDD if they can prove that are serious about building and push their projects to the mainnet by June 1st.
