Contest Proposal: TON Surf testers reward for the beta testing period (STAGE 2)

Contest: TON Surf testers for the beta testing period (Stage 2)


This is a contest to reward TON Surf Beta Testers who assisted and supported TON Surf from 07 May 2020 to 22 September 2020 - the day TON Surf exited the beta mode. It is created to encourage and reward the work of beta testers, who for 4.5 months have made efforts to identify bugs, suggest improvements to both the work and the user interface of TON Surf while describing this directly in the Telegram group for testing “Secret TON Surf Testing” or technical support.


The jury voted for the first proposal and the participants who provided the wallet address were paid a reward of 1,000 TONs. It later came to light that this method of compensation is not good practice for the community, and instead it was argued that such rewards should only be distributed on the basis of a contest and not just a proposal; therefore, this contest represents stage 2.

Only 60% of the participants managed to provide their wallet address. The remaining 40% considered this unfair and asked to re-vote for those who for some reason were late in sending their wallet address.

Due to the fact that the basic conditions of the initial competition were not violated, because the participants were determined in advance, some simply did not have time to provide the wallet address for receiving their reward, it is proposed to hold a contest to finally close the question on beta-testers TON Surf.


Contest. This is a one-time contest that cannot be repeated.

This proposal Contest dates

December 09, 2020 (00:00 UTC) - December 18, 2020 (23:59 UTC).

Voting cycle

10 days


Everyone who took part in the beta testing of TON Surf came to the Secret TON Surf Testing group out of pure enthusiasm, wanted to help the community and helped by describing the problems found in the application, offering useful improvements for users, and have been doing this for almost 5 months for free. Without their participation, the release of TON Surf from Beta could have been significantly delayed.

The offer to join the “Secret TON Surf Testing” group has been repeatedly published in multilingual chats of the Free TON community. But as of September 22, 2020, only 430 of all participants had joined (some of which are the developers themselves). And out of these 430, just over 100 helped the developers and, accordingly, the community.

Therefore, every socially useful action is worthy of reward.

I support the idea of holding the second stage of the competition


I support, despite I already got my reward.


I also support this proposal


I support the idea, it’s fair


I didn’t think it would be possible to get a reward after all. Maybe I’ll get a small prize after all
I’m all for it!!!


I m support this contest proposal; second parts of participants should finally get their rewards.

But, as i say before, it s very strange for me that people from 1 contest split into 2 parts and not threated equally.


Hope everyone gets their hard earned reward! It wouldn’t be fair if the jury didn’t vote this a 100% but at the same time even for them to reconsider it again is a good sign that the TON project is something that you can count on. Hope it gets its full vote!

Good luck to everyone!


I think it’s fair.
Thank you.


Very good. I totally support it


Firstly, I want to express my gratitude to Mr. Kolman for his participation.
Secondly, I believe that the award should be received by all participants who were listed in the first part, so I support this proposal.


100% support! I, myself am among those who were late, but I still hope that this epic will be successfully resolved. For great justice =)


Жаль только, что могут теперь не всем по 1000 наградить, поскольку решает жюри за награду


Честно говоря, тоже не совсем понятно.
Ведь можно сделать фиксированную награду. Все бета-тестеры, которые принимали участие и те, которые не успели подать заявки, ничем не отличаются.
Суть была такова, чтобы наградить людей, которые бескорыстно помогали репортами. Тогда о награде не шла речь.

А здесь, получается, уже и награды другие. Как жюри будет выставлять оценки? Ссылаясь на что? На качество составленных баг репортов?

Лично мне не понятно


I support this initiative. Looking forward to applying


I dont agree with grades of rewards at all.

Why the first part of participants gets 1000 crystals each and second part - have 600-1000 grades?? All, who participated, did exactly SAME job!

Why second part of participants should get less? I think, it not fair.


Guys and gals, for almost a month you all asked and waited for me to form a proposal for the competition. None of you suggested anything interesting. And those who wrote something did not publish anything for voting. Out of the kindness of my heart I did everything for you. Do you still have complaints against me? It was necessary to make the format of the competition out of the old proposal. In any contest, the jury shall vote on each application and assign points. In the proposal, I focused on the fact that in the first stage everyone received exactly 1000 TON each. I think the judges will take this into account.

The second part may receive nothing at all. Because, firstly, everyone had equal chances at the first stage. Secondly, this proposal must still be accepted and voted for.
I think it’s better “not to muddy the waters” :wink: :slightly_smiling_face:
The first proposal, which did not provide for a jury vote, was rejected (as I wrote in the previous topic)


It s totally opposite, Kolman; i m really appreciate your effort (as many peoples here too) and what you doing and want say big thanks for that. Without you, it was will be no rewards at all for beta testers.

All my posts is against big bureacratic paperworks and how things are doing here, in TON governance. Like, why we need propose a contest, for second part of people, when first part get their rewards - and waiting months for it?

It s just second part of participants, who was late. What we need to do?

  1. make another, final call, for second part
  2. get their data (wallets or telegram names) and proof of person somehow
  3. give them rewards, same as first part
  4. done!
  5. no third call, if you late

I think the jury will take into account all the facts and vote 10 points for everyone who provides any evidence.


Поскорее бы уже проголосовали. И так уже долго ждем. Спасибо автору идеи за помощь нам
