Last year, we hosted the inaugural Bitcoin Games virtual hackathon and saw an avalanche of incredible submissions from all around the world. This year, we are trying something a little different with help from all of you!
We've crafted a handful of competitions to put Bitcoiners to the test, asking them to submit new or previously-built projects that propel our favorite technology forward in distinct ways. We’ve opened submissions for the challenges below and the Bitcoin community will be voting for their favorite solution in each category. Winners will be announced via our conference social handles.
** Submissions are open until March 9, 2020 at 11:59 p.m. CST**
What Is Included In The Grand Prize?
For each of the challenge categories above, there will be one lucky winner who will claim a swag bag of Bitcoin paraphernalia totaling $3,500 in value. This won't be decided by us, we’ll let the Bitcoin community decide who takes it all by voting on Twitter. We might be adding some more prizes along the way, but thanks to generous donations from our sponsors and community members, the winner of each challenge category will take home:
What Do I Include In My Project Submission?
Please include a GitHub link, YouTube link, video file, graphic, abstract or additional relevant documentation for your project. Please note that there is an upload limit of 4 MB.
What If I Can’t Make It To Bitcoin 2020?
Don’t worry, we won’t give away your prize. We’ll just send it the old-fashioned way. (We’ll try to give winners advanced notice so that they can arrange travel.)
What Are The Judging Criteria?
Simple: The opinion of the Bitcoin community is the only criterion for this contest. We’ll be asking the community to vote for their favorite submission in each challenge via Twitter. The voting period will last approximately one week and will take place following the submission deadline.
Where/How Will Winners Be Announced?
Winners will be announced on stage at Bitcoin 2020 as well as on Twitter.
Whart Are The Submission Deadlines?
Submissions are now through 11:59 p.m. CT on March 9, 2020.
Can I Submit A Project I've Already Built?
All that we ask is that you submit a project that is your own work and does not violate any creative or property rights.
What Do I Include in My Submission
Remember, submit your project before the submission deadline on March 9, 2020, at 11:59 p.m. CST.
