Prize distribution

The event will consist of 2 phases:

Phase 1 (Oct 18–31)

To determine the leaders, we will use the quadratic funding algorithm, and make the ladder of projects by the quadratic results of the community members’ voting. Each member of the community will be able to donate to any project (or projects) that they like using their own funds. On the hackathon page on the Hackerlink website, after selecting a project you like, you can click on “Vote”. The distribution of votes from the community will ultimately determine what projects will be picked for phase 2.

Anyone can use BUSD to vote on projects and teams they like, BUSD donations will be directly transferred to projects.

Phase 2 (Nov 1–5)

We will pick top 10 projects that were determined by quadratic funding of the community and our judges will score each project based on following criteria:

Size of potential audience (0–10 points)

P2E potential (0–10 points)

Uniqueness of the idea (0–10 points)

Diversity of P2E mechanics (1–4 points)

Game design (1–4 points)

Low competition, no “same” games (1–4 points)

Top 3 projects will be rewarded with our grant, provided by BSC and our sponsors based on following proportions:

Top 1–50%

Top 2–30%

Top 3–20%

About this hackathon

GameFi industry started to grow rapidly this year. Binance Smart Chain became one of the core tools for Play-to-Earn (P2E) developers due to its cheap and fast transactions. We would like to attract even more talented developers from Easter Europe that are ready to leverage all benefits of BSC for their projects and support the best of them.That is why we decided to conduct a Central Eastern Europe GameFi hackathon.
