Q. Can I join the hackathon if I already have an existing developed/developing project?
Yes. You can still join the hackathon provided that you have made significant updates or new feature additions to your project. Please make sure to make it clear to judges and the community what you have built and what will you be building during the hackathon period. Projects found not making any updates during the hackathon period will be disqualified.
Q. Can I join the hackathon if I have participated in TRON Grand Hackathon 2022 Season 1 & 2?
You are more than welcome to join season 3 of the hackathon if you have launched your existing hackathon project for the community to use. You must make sure to select that you are submitting an existing project during your Devpost project submission so the judges can judge accordingly. Each judge will make their own decisions on how they treat pre-built projects vs new projects. You will need to signup on DevPost like the rest of the participants and create a new project post under TRON Hackathon > Hackathon 2022 Season 3

Q. Can I reward people to vote for my project?
Any type of reward is considered vote buying. Rewarding voters for voting for your project may result in disqualification. TRON DAO will be monitoring closely to make sure that all voting is done fairly. If you notice any projects that are practising vote buying, please feel free to inform us so we can take further action.
Q. Some projects are using bots to boost their voting?
The TRON DAO Hackathon team is always monitoring the voting process and analyzing bot accounts. After the voting period, there is a time for checking spam/bot voting. The Hackathon team may penalize participants who are dishonest and may even disqualify participants that are against the rules to keep the hackathon voting process fair.
The hackathon team will strive to make the voting process fair for every participant in the hackathon.
Q. Will TRON DAO release the Judge’s scores to the projects?
Due to the nature of how the Devpost platform works we are unable to release personal scores or provide judges’ feedback for each project as the platform doesn’t support it. The Devpost team will be evaluating and checking all judges’ scores and assigning the Hackathon winners.
Q. What if I still have other questions?
Feel free to leave your questions in this thread and our hackathon support team will get back to you publicly ASAP.
