The Free TON community, especially Dev Teams, needs more Smart Contract and DeBot developers. Some experienced Free TON developers can teach new people, but don’t have enough time for it. To organize education we need managers who can organize the education process and with collaboration with developers can teach students.

The goal

Get new Junior Developers experienced in Smart Contract and DeBot development, which can be hired by Free TON development teams.


Applicants for Junior Developers position, present their coursework on AMA session and pass interview with Jurors.

  • Jurors or whose team(s) intend to participate in this contest by providing submissions lose their right to vote in this contest.


Education Team

For each certified student (all students who get 5 points and above) get:

  • 450 TON per point (ex. 7 points = 2 800).

In future we recommend this kind of monetization - for each student who get job offer from involved Employers:

  • 3 amounts of salary in Free TON equivalence (payed by employee directly to Education Team).


Students who scored 5 or more points get:

  • Free TON Academy certificate - Blockchain Junior Developer;
  • Encouraging prize in Free TON Crystals in sum 50 TON per point (ex. 7 points = 350 TON, 4 points = 0 TON);
  • Job offer from one of the Free TON Dev Teams.

Jury rewards

An amount equal to 10% of the total sum of all total tokens awarded to contest winners will be distributed among jurors who vote and provide feedback. Jury rewards are directly proportional to the number of votes, so if one juror votes less often and another more often, the reward is disseminated respectively.

Org Rewards

We have some discussion about rewards, 2800TON for educated junior developer (who get 7 points) can be too high, so any related comments are welcome.
Also in this contest is no methodology of education, it’s by design - because I see it like black box, teachers can/must have their personal methodology.

happy to see how exciting it’ll be for students to earn crypto.

I am very excited, this is a great proposal, and the number of TON rewards is not so important here, because knowledge is the most valuable reward.

Can an ordinary member of Free TON community be able to participate in this contest as an enrollee?

Why not? If you ready to sign work contract after education, don’t see any problem.

Thank you for your answer!

Great initiative! can’t wait to see students take up this initiative as well

A very useful initiative.
