Hello everyone! This proposal has been in the plans for a long time, but we didn’t have time for it.
Not many new teams participate in FreeTON contests despite the huge prizes. Basically the same people and their friends/acquaintances participate in them.
I’m sure that there are a large number of participants who would like to compete in our contests, but unfortunately they don’t know about their existence.
It’s necessary to form a White list of platforms where contests on various topics are placed around the world.
Assign hashtags to platforms - web-design, developing, analitics, blochchain dev, etc.
STRONGLY recommend all S&G to assign hashtags to their contests and post contests on the white list platforms with a suitable direction (hashtag).
I understand that many will be unhappy because all current participants benefit from the existing asymmetry of information. But let’s face it - the more the growth of new participants and, accordingly, the competition, the better for the development of FreeTON.
I propose to do the simplest action that doesn’t require any large budgets, separate contests, or something else. We only need community consensus, which will lead to a manifold increase in the number of participants in our contests.
We have compiled the first list of 52 such platforms for discussion and categorization. I will be grateful to everyone who can add additional high-quality requests for the white list or give comments on current requests.
