Hackernoon & Free TON Partnership proposal

They have the right to modify the terms. @Utsav contacted me regarding the prize. If you are not the winner, please try to write good articles there. It is only way to win on Hackernoon article contest. Hackernoon is the best partner for decentralized projects like Free TON.

I do not prevent you from revealing the truth. Only I do not see any truth, no arguments, but only insults. You behave very defiantly and your words catch not one person, but everyone participating in the hackernoon.com and FreeTON contests. Nobody forbids you to publish the truth and evidence to them. But so far I can see that you are a liar. If this is not the case, give objective information. And the community is now giving an assessment of your actions, judging by the comments. And I see that I am not the only one who has such an opinion about you.

Я не мешаю Вам раскрывать правду. Только я не вижу никакой правды, никаких аргументов, а только оскорбления. Вы ведёте себя очень вызывающе и ваши слова цепляют не одного человека, а Всех участвующих в конкурсах hackernoon.com и FreeTON. Вам никто не запрещает публиковать правду и доказательства к ним. Но пока что я вижу, что Вы - лжец. Если это не так - дайте обьективную информацию. А оценку Вашим действиям сейчас даёт сообщество, судя по комментариям. И я вижу, что не у одного меня такое мнение по поводу Вас.

Please stop FUD here! You can join Weekly call or Hackernoon Award call and ask there, if you continue fluid here, you will be muted then! Thanks for understanding!

The partner requests the third tranche of tokens in the amount of 150k according to the accepted proposal.

I have already shared the proof of txid sent from Hackernoon as I am two times winner on Hackernoon and they sent me awards for both winnings. It is highly competitive to be selected so I think frustration is there to him even though he is not a winner but venting frustration for not receiving the prizes.

It is not an insult ? I have absolutely no point to deal with your comment, this is the last I promise.

Weird, thanks for thriteening. So you advertise here is freedom of speech it is decentralized blah blah but got thriteened just sharing the truth. I will join the weekly call too plz let me know the process. Hackernoon award call never happened after the first announcement.

I also have no time to make repeated argument against this. Keep believing.

You seems like a troll, everyone has a right for the free speech without hating for each other. If you want fluid go and do it somewhere else. This topic related only for Hackernoon partnership, if you have proofs that you are winner and you didn’t get a reward write to @Dedicate_s or come on the weekly meetup. At this moment you are just flooding here. I made a warn that it’s not welcome here

I did not understand who is right here from the disputing parties. I also won a prize in the last contest. So I will be able to find out from my own experience whether the statements of the disputing parties are justified. So far, the editors have not contacted me about the prize.
In general, I think this partnership is very useful for the project. The same applies to the publication contest.

Hey @viljy - here are the announcements with the latest batch of winners:

Can you write to hang@hackernoon.com and cc me in utsav@hackernoon.com via the email used to submit the winning entry?

We’ll get your winnings processed right away.

A Proposal to Sponsor Noonies2021

Noonies 2021 is HackerNoon’s annual event to celebrate the tech influencers who made the news that year. The event started in 2019 and 2021 is the third year where Noonies has continued to draw tech thought-leaders, companies, and innovators alike for the coveted Noonies awards.

Noonies 2021 has 350+ award categories - ranging from crypto/Blockchain and other emerging technologies such as AI/ML to conventional tech topics such as javascript programming and items of interest to startups and small businesses.

This year, the event started on Oct 20 and shall run for 3 months.

Each Noonies Award winner is awarded a prize from the sponsors. For example, dottech domains is awarding all Noonies winners free dottech domains for the next 5 years and Avast is giving away free subscriptions to their browser software.

Noonies 2021’s sponsors are Bybit, Avast, Dottech Domains, <and maybe, Everscale>

What Does the sponsorship at Noonies2021 mean for Everscale’s NFT Ecosystem?

Our proposal to the Everscale community is premised on the following pillars:

  1. Getting more people to know about the Everscale ecosystem
  2. Getting more people crypto-aware
  3. Getting more people NFT-aware

To this end, here is what we propose:

Every winner (1st, 2nd, and 3rd) gets a TrueNFT which would be designed by us but minted on Everscale. This way, when the winning influencers share their awards on social media, it’ll show a Everscale TrueNFT making people curious to get one.

Via this partnership, Everscale shall also get:

  1. A premium-tier placement on the homepage (noonies.tech)

  1. There would also be a placement of the Everscale/TrueNFT branding under the voting panel of each of the 350+ award pages in a fashion similar to this below:

(Source: https://noonies.tech/award/2021-best-crypto-wallet-of-2021)

  1. Social shares of the award pages on their social media shall include a placement on the Twitter cards, Facebook vanity images, etc in the manner depicted below:

  1. Every Noonies2021 interview (like this one) shall get a callout at the bottom), we would also provide shoutouts on all the press releases that we send out (like this one)


  • Noonies2021 is HackerNoon’s Annual Award for celebrating tech influencers of 2021

  • 2500+ nominees across 350+ award categories are participating in this 3-month event

  • HackerNoon proposes awarding TrueNFTs to all winners via a premium-tier pan-award partnership that includes:

    • NFTs minted on Everscale to be distributed to all winners
    • Everscale placement on noonies homepage for all 3 months
    • Everscale placement on all 350+ award pages for all 3 months

HackerNoon has recently started offering story podcasts on all their stories. This slot gets about 10,000 daily impressions and about 500 daily clicks. (Link, Screenshot below)

Clicking on the play button plays the message - This audio ad is presented by Everscale - the fastest blockchain in the world.

This story ad is placed on every top story page on HackerNoon.

Placement on the Billboard ADs

Sometimes we have a few open inventory slots on the top of every HackerNoon page. This gets about half a million daily impressions.

On these open slots (as and when they are reached), we place ADs from Everscale and their partners in the ecosystem. In this screenshot below, you’ll see the AD from TonSwap (Link)
