hi , let’s have a call

Oh yeah !! :wink: :rocket: :rocket:

Hi, write to Telegram @amalfica ))

  1. There is no need for such enormously high rewards, even for teams of 5 ppl. Moreover, we don’t need “some MVP which solves some hypothetical problem”.
    The Telegram’s approach is far better. Problem > criteria > solution.
  2. Online hackathons are quite useless. the key point of offline ones is their networking and team-building effect. Online lacks that and it’s better to run some usual contests instead.

So.
First of all, all prizes should be divided by 5.
Second, the list of very specific problems should be made.
Then MAYBE there will be some sense in the hackathon.

Thanks for your feedback. The «list of very specific problems should be made» - the first thing that will be done before the launch of the contest.

I like this and will be a big privilege to join this team of mass adoption. I believe in freeton.

Dear Amalfica
Thank you for organising and coordinating this effort. I work in the Fintech industry, and I am also planning some activities around generating and validating problem statements.

Just thinking out loud, perhaps those problem statements could be shared with you and your team to organise Hackathon online?
