We’re also excited to announce that we’re offering prizes to community contributors who go above and beyond to support the HackaTRON forum.
- 500 USDD Community Contributor Prize x 10
Up to ten (10) active forum members will be eligible for a Community Contributor Prize
Last season, we gave the community a bigger role in the HackaTRON forum, and your response blew us away. You voiced your opinions, reported projects that didn’t meet the standard, and helped to make the forum more self-maintained.
This season, we’re calling on you once again to lend your support. Your feedback is crucial to building a thriving TRON community and supporting the development of innovative new projects.
The voting period will close on October 28, 2023 12:00 AM. The winners will be announced shortly after the voting period ends.
Thank you for being a part of the TRON community!
