After activating the competition, we needed to postpone the start date of the competition for several days. So that the community can become familiar with it and prepare for organizational issues. This decision must be made to increase the number of participants and prevent carryover.
The DePool contest was launched. Not everyone had the opportunity to prepare for the contest: setup node and read smart-contract deploying documentation.
The jury must decide to give everyone time to get acquainted with the launched contest and accept all the organizational points before the start of the competition.
Anyone can participate, but Free TON cannot distribute Tons to US citizens or US entities.
