[Approved] Sponsoring Blockchain@Columbia LionHack 2022

Hi everyone!

Blockchain@Columbia (LionDAO) is hosting a 3-day hackathon on April 1-3 for over 300 builders in the space. The majority of participants will be university undergraduates and graduate students with some full-time engineers attending as well!

We’re big fans of NEAR and the ecosystem that you guys have developed and would love for NEAR to sponsor and participate in the hacakthon.

Sponsorship Info here:

Our Gold sponsors currently are Solana, Jump Crypto, a16z, Multicoin, and Polygon! We hope for NEAR to be represented as one of the main tracks on the Multichain track as a Gold sponsor.

Please see https://www.lionhack.xyz/ for more information on what we’re up to!

Cc: @jlwaugh thank you

This is a unique one. I’ve looked up the the LionHack event- seems like a cool iniative.

What are the 1st, 2nd, 3rd place prizes associated with each track?


I support sponsoring at the $10k level


Nice! Please create a poll here.


Prizes depend on the sponsors per track so if NEAR was a silver sponsor on the multichain track then near would have a semi-finalist/2nd place cash prize for this track while the finalist prize (1st place) would be Solana


Congratulations! Poll has now been passed by the Marketing DAO Council, you can proceed to KYC and submit payout request to with the NEAR Foundation
