I don’t see the point in this offer, especially with such fabulous prize money. Where did you get them from in the first place?

I don’t see the point, because there are already products of the Free TON brand and there are their own merch

But we have a partner of Free TON - Free TON Shop. Isn’t it better to hold this contest on their basis?

Think you should get together with FREETONSHOP and propose jointly a contest for new, or better merchandise. They do contest every week to get the community involved in new design and merchandising … By the way, FREETONSHOP received 60,000 for all they done up to date

To do something where you are proposing 80,000 comp for first place … one can design a full collection for a runway for such amount … sounds very fishy

The prize fund is too high. Those who want to do merch already do it without contests.

Yeah! 80k TON = 48k USD! What should the merch be made of? :grinning:

I think that there should be no connection with the freeTon-shop here. To avoid monopoly, a freeton-shop should be an independent store where anyone can offer goods. I would love to participate in such a contest! This is a good opportunity for everyone. Otherwise, freeton -shop will stay with the idea of its creators.

If you have not notice, FreeTonShop recently held a design contest where the winners received thousands of tokens for the best design. FreeTon Shop doesn’t only sell its products, There are products from PokerTon, designed by the community and will launch soon for Tree Ton and several others. I think new design and products are fully supported, but not at the requested amounts of :gem:

Welcome to the community Andrew! Glad you voiced your first opinion for a freind!

The price is too high.
The price must be reduced by at least 10 times.

No, useless competition

About free TON shop: I believe that not everything should go through already existed free TON shop. There should be no monopoly, the more competitors we have the better it will be for free TON community growth.

Okay, I agree. But where did you get such budgets for such prize money?

About contest rewards: a whole team can participate in this contest(not only single person), and as a result they will create a whole collection of goods.
If the community consider contest award as very high:
-Anyone who want to participate can offer their award amount in discussion.
-If the idea of contest is for your liking you are free to propose terms, and award amount for change.

Motivating everyone for creating Free TON products for utilisation is really a good idea. If more Free TON products will be available all over the world, then it will be a more healthy environment for whole Free TON community.

Hello. Great task for Web & Design Sub-governance

Sounds like an irony :grinning:
Rebrand the old SG and cut more…

To the author - merch shop supposed to be a business, they make money with. And that should be already enough to motivate someone to get in and challenge the monopoly.
