Free TON

Contest Proposal: Explanation of Free TON for everyone (Wiki page)

Short description:

Create a wiki page that will explain the core concepts and technologies of Free TON for users who are far from IT.

Type:

Contest

Contest entry period:

October 25, 12:00 PM UTC - November 8, 24:00 PM UTC.

Motivation:

There were a lot of potential new users from Belarus republic, who were attracted to Free TON project in October 2020 but most of them are far from IT. Explanations that contain words like “blockchain”, “decentralization”, etc. confuse and scary people. These difficult explanations can’t interest them to start to explore the project themselves. The creation of a complete and simple explanation page will help to attract new users in general.

General requirements:

  • Explanation for new non-IT users should be as simple as it can. Any term (like “blockchain”) should be explained or a simple explanation must be referenced.
  • One-page explanation that contains examples. (“Rai stones” is a good example of a useful explanation).
  • It is not necessary absolutely exactly explain concepts/technologies that are used inside Free TON. It is more important to make them simple, but there are may be links to the pages that explain concepts/technologies more accurately.
  • Concepts/technologies that may be explained:
    • Decentralization
    • Blockchain
    • Token
    • Smart contract
    • Tools for using Free TON (bots, exchanges, etc. )
    • How Free TON tokens could be earned now
    • Scam explanation
  • The result of the work should be in the form of a structured text, available for reading by everyone.

Evaluation criteria and winning conditions:

  • Simplicity and clarity of explanation for users who far from IT

Voting

  • Group of random users votes.
  • Users can score works from 0 to 10 based on their subjective opinion about “Does the work answers the questions about Free TON that they have before”. Or they can choose to abstain from voting if they feel unqualified to judge.

Reward:

1st prize…………………………700 Tons

2nd prize……………………….500 Tons

3rd prize………………………. 300 Tons

Next 10 runners up…………. 50 Tons each

Jury rewards:

An amount equal to 3% of the sum total of all total tokens actually awarded will be distributed equally between all users who vote.

Procedural remarks:

  • Participants must upload their work correctly so it can be viewed and accessible in the formats described. If work is inaccessible or does not fit the criteria described, the submission may be void by jurors.
  • Participants must submit their work before the closing of the filing of applications. If not submitted on time, the submission will not count.
  • If the number of participants is less than the amount of prizes available, the excess prize awards are void.

Перевод

Краткое описание:

Создать вики-страницу, которая объяснит основные концепции и технологии Free TON для пользователей, далеких от ИТ.

Тип:

Соревнование

Период подачи заявок на участие в конкурсе:

С 25 октября, 12:00 PM UTC по 8 ноября, 24:00 PM UTC.

Мотивация и причины:

В октябре 2020 года к проекту Free TON было привлечено много потенциальных новых пользователей из Республики Беларусь, но большинство из них плохо разбираются в IT технологиях. Объяснения, содержащие такие слова, как «блокчейн», «децентрализация» и т. д. сбивают с толку и пугают людей (Очередной МММ и развод и т.д.). Эти сложные объяснения не позволяют заинтересовать людей, чтобы они сами начали изучать проект и его возможности. Создание страницы с полными и простыми объяснениями поможет привлечь новых пользователей в проект в целом.

Основные требования:

  • Объяснение для новых пользователей, не связанных с ИТ, должно быть максимально простым. Любой термин (например, «blockchain») должен быть объяснен или необходимо оставить ссылку статью или видео с простым объяснением.
  • Одна страница с объяснениями с примерами. («Камни Раи» - хороший пример простого объяснения).
  • Нет необходимости абсолютно точно объяснять концепции/технологии, которые используются внутри Free TON. Более важно сделать их простыми для понимания, но можно добавить ссылки на страницы (в вики или на внешние ресурсы), которые могут более точно объяснить концепции/технологии.
  • Концепции/технологии, которые можно объяснить:
    • Децентрализация
    • Blockchain
    • Token
    • Smart contract
    • Инструменты для использования Free TON (боты, биржи, т.д.)
    • Как сейчас можно получить токены Free TON
    • Описание мошенничества, с которым можно столкнуться
  • Результат работы должен быть в виде структурированного текста, доступного для чтения каждому.

Критерии оценки и условия выигрыша:

  • Простота и понятность объяснения для пользователей, далеких от IT

Голосование

  • В голосовании участвуют случайные пользователи
  • Пользователи могут оценивать работы от 0 до 10 на основе их субъективного мнения о том, “отвечает ли работа на вопросы о Free TON, которые у них были ранее”. Или они могут воздержаться от голосования, если считают, что не имеют права оценивать.

Reward:

1е место…………………………700 Tons

2е место……………………….500 Tons

3е место………………………. 300 Tons

Следующие 10 мест.………. 50 Tons each

Награда для жюри:

Сумма, равная 3% от общей суммы всех фактически выданных токенов, будет равномерно распределена между всеми проголосовавшими пользователями.

Замечания по процедуре проведения конкурса:

  • Участники должны правильно загружать свои работы, чтобы их можно было просматривать и использовать, описанными способами. Если работа недоступна или не соответствует описанным критериям, работа может быть аннулирована жюри.
  • Участники должны представить свои работы до закрытия приема заявок. Работы, предоставленные позднее не учитываются в конкурсе.
  • Если количество участников меньше доступного количества призов, избыточные призы не выдаются никому.

Отказ от ответственности:

Участвовать может любой желающий, но Free TON не может распространять токены среди граждан и юридических лиц США.

This is great to have the contest on publishing more information about TON and crypto terms like blockchain to those without this knowledge, I believe this contest will help in winning many into having interest in TON thus pushing it’s popularity to many users and investors.

Wiki is a collaborative effort, not competitive. If each of us, authors, will compete and try to create their own version of the same wiki page, we will lose precious time. The contest should either reward all of the contributors to the “What’s Free TON and why” page, or this contest should not interfere with wiki activity. Second option is already achieved via “Free TON positioning essay” contest.

As a guide it seems very good, because is true some new members when they see a words like “Blockchain” word BLOCK it seems as a thing such blocked…etc and also with “decentralization” these things confuse people, so will be better to create a such contest to explain anything about TON and cryptocurrencies meaning terms.

Hello!

Thank you for your time and proposal! This is the first time when somebody outside the team makes a proposal in Wiki Subgovernance. This is great! :slight_smile:

I would like to offer you to organize a discussion with community in the Wiki chats. To have involvement and feedback. And ask people to post their thoughts here.

I agree that simply explained core concepts are of top priority. It’s also hard to explain those concepts in a way anyone can understand while preserving accuracy as much as possible, so great quality is required.

However I also agree with @mr.r that the strength of wiki is collaboration, and competition on the same articles will waste time.

For those reasons, we need a way of both extra rewarding for good quality articles that explain Free TON for everyone, while making sure there are no two people who compete on the same articles.

I suggest something in the middle.
Those articles will be written like any other article, so anyone who start working on an article will announce that before on a dedicated page. When done, writers will apply to a special contest similar to the one proposed.

This way we get the best of both worlds, collaboration and competition:)

@mr.r you are right, the competitive way will lead the situation when different people do the same work. When I started writing this contest proposal I hadn’t figured out that there was another way - collaboration. I just thought that only contests were the tools to propose and develop something there. It is only my mistake =(

I also agree with @Noam that It will be greater to collaborate and work on the article together. I think it will allow authors to make the article both quickly and in a uniform style, but only if the authors communicate with each other during work.

@michaelshapkin thank you for the links. I will try to do it as soon as I can.

Could anybody helps me with what should I do with this proposal? Should I keep it up to date and how? (I’m not allowed to edit it anymore)

P.S. Sorry for my English I’m not a native speaker.
