NEAR is putting together a series of Global Hackathons with up to $1M prizes lined up. The series kicks off on August 27th with MetaBUIDL.
To ensure the hacks are meaningful, NEAR is partnering with ecosystem partners. You bring an idea related to your product. NEAR brings the prize. Together we will present exciting challenges relevant to our shared vision of an open web.
Challenges can be bounty-small or startup-large. Check out some live examples. Let’s collaborate if you have a great idea but aren’t sure on how to frame it up.
Challenge needs to be well defined with…
- submission requirements
- judging criteria
- organization logo & link
You’ll also need to be available to judge the submissions to your challenge.
There are opportunities to mentor hackers, speak, lead a panel, and run workshops. The more touch points you create the more engagement you’ll have on your challenge.
Add your own funds to the prize pool, making for a juicier challenge NEAR will sponsor $5,000 in token as the baseline.
