1. Decentralized is Blockchain
Probably obvious, but the event is aimed at decentralized projects utilizing blockchain.
Doesn't have to be Bitcoin, but each project should be part of a blockchain eco-system
2. Be kind
This is, by all means, the most vital rule.
Any behavior that is offensive to others will be halted, and the presenters disqualified.
Don’t behave in a way you wouldn't be proud to have your parents see.
3. Build Something that works
Build something that really works. Buggy is good. It means you actually worked on it and it actually does something
Screenshots and slides will not suffice.
4. Write Your Code Here, track it in Github
The projects must be coded entirely within the event.
Exceptions are publicly available open-source codes that have been available for at least a week.
Use Git or similar to track your code as you progress. It doesn't have to be a publicly open repository, but if you make it to the finals, you must agree to have your code audited to make sure it's all legit.
5. Present the same project you submitted
You must present the project described in your submission, unless otherwise approved by the event managers.
6. Team size limits
Number of members per team cannot exceed 5, to keep the game fair.
On the other hand - It is also not recommended to work alone.
Please bring your own laptop.
You’re welcomed to spend the night hacking.
However, bring your sleeping bag.
And a toothbrush.
And a towel.
8. Judging criteria
The panel of judges will decide on the winning project.
The judges are composed of early stage and late stage investors, experts, media, and you, the crowd.
The criteria for the judging are the following:
50% innovation, 50% presentation, and 50% execution!
