Hello, HackaTRON participants and Tronics!
Get ready to unleash your innovative spirit because it’s time to vote for HackaTRON S4! Congratulations to all the brilliant hackathon contestants and community members who took part in the TRON Grand Hackathon Season 4. This season, we have multiple crypto partners and large crypto institutions eagerly anticipating the unveiling of your genius!
After an intense preliminary round, we are now left with 80 qualifying projects out of the 172 BUIDLs submitted. Our judges are excited to delve into each of these projects and cast their votes for the Judges-selected Qualifiers. Meanwhile, as a community member in the TRON DAO forum, you will have the power to choose the Forum Hackathon Winners.
Please note that this season’s Hackathon follows an incubator approach. While most projects may not be fully completed at the time of judging, participants must demonstrate basic functionality on the TRON/BTTC testnet or present a Minimum Viable Product if their project doesn’t involve smart contracts. The Judges-selected Qualifiers will receive 30% of their prizes from the Judges-selected winners prize pool and be awarded the remaining when they publish their projects to the mainnet for the community to use by June 1, 2023.
The prizes distribution per track for Judges-selected Qualifiers is incredible:
1st Place $20,000 USDD 2nd Place $15,000 USDD 3rd Place $10,000 USDD 4th Place $8,000 USDD 5th Place $6,000 USDD
As a community member, you have 3 votes per track, and your vote is crucial in selecting the winners who will receive 100% of the prizes in the community-selected winners’ prize pool. This funding will help the teams continue developing and advancing their projects to the mainnet.
The prizes distribution per track for Forum Hackathon winners is:
1st Place $6,000 USDD 2nd Place $5,000 USDD 3rd Place $4,000 USDD 4th Place $3,000 USDD 5th Place $2,000 USDD
You may head over to all of the Web3, NFT, DeFi, GameFi, Builder, and Eco-Friendly tracks and examine each project carefully to see if it is something that you think the TRON community would benefit from. As a bonus, we also have a $5K Bonus Prize for community members who have been active and asking questions in the hackathon project posts.
Tronics, don’t wait any longer! Make your voices heard and cast your votes below. Remember, the poll will show live results after you have voted, and it will automatically close on 2023-05-07T23:00:00Z.
This season, we took a different approach and let the community handle a lot of the action. It’s been great to see you guys voicing your opinions and reporting projects that didn’t meet the standard. This has helped to make the forum more self-maintained by the community. Keep up the good work and continue to share your thoughts in this post. Let us know which projects deserve special attention and which ones need to be approached with caution. Your feedback is crucial to building a thriving TRON community. Let’s show the world what we’re capable of!
