We’ve had an amazing time during this season of the TRON Grand Hackathon! We want to express our gratitude to all the participants, including project teams, developers, voters, active forum members, and everyone who voiced their opinions. We truly appreciate your support and enthusiasm.
A special thanks goes to our esteemed judges, who took the time out of their busy schedules to review our HackaTRON S4 projects. It was no small feat, and we value their dedication and expertise.
During this hackathon, we made great efforts to ensure fair community voting. Building on the lessons learned from the previous seasons, we wanted to emphasize our stance against vote buying and uphold the principles of fairness and honesty. We diligently battled against thousands of bots and eliminated duplicate or spam votes. We are grateful to all those who actively reported and flagged inappropriate content, as your contribution was invaluable.
In HackaTRON S4, we witnessed a significant increase in participation and engagement within the community on our forum. A lot of meaningful questions were asked by the community and a lot of convincing answers are given by the project teams. We are thrilled by the growth and positive response.
We are also thrilled and delighted to see many returning builders joining our all-new Builder track for this hackathon! It’s truly exciting to witness their enthusiasm and dedication as they enhance their existing projects. The competition in the Builder track is intense, with a plethora of exceptional builders pushing the boundaries of innovation. We wholeheartedly appreciate your participation, and we’re taking note of your feedback. Rest assured, we’re already brainstorming ways to make the Builder track even more rewarding next season, with the possibility of adding additional prizes.
To all the winners, please noted that HackTRON S4 is milestone-based as it has received an overwhelmingly positive response from the community. If you are a judges-selected qualifier, it’s crucial that you take your project live on the mainnet by June 1 for the community to use in order to receive the full prize payment. The community is eagerly awaiting the opportunity to explore and experience your incredible creations firsthand!
For those who didn’t win, don’t lose heart just yet. We have fantastic opportunities lined up for you too! We still have three Determination Prizes of 5,000 USDD each and two Project Engagement Prizes of 3,000 USDD each waiting to be awarded. These prizes will be given to projects that continue to make progress and build by June 1. So, don’t stop now—keep the momentum going and let your dedication shine! Make sure to keep your project post updated and let the community know how to test out your projects on the mainnet once it is ready!
We strongly encourage everyone to share their feedback on their experience here, whether it’s positive or negative. We value each and every response from the community, and we will carefully consider them to make further improvements for Season 5.
It’s the community that makes TRON DAO great. We extend our heartfelt thanks to all of you.
