Free TON DGO (Decentralized Governance Organization) Jury Contest

Short description

This is the first contest to be run by the Free TON DGO sub-governance in order to select a qualified jury to score contests and provide feedback for each score. This jury will be limited to vote only for the work executed within the DGO sub-governance.



Contest entry period

Starts: 21 October 2020. Ends: 31 October 2020 based on the contest timestamp with a 24-hour countdown clock to take effect on the last day of voting.

Voting cycle

10 days


The goal of the contest is to attract professionals that will be motivated to enhance the Free TON ecosystem by participating in the Free TON Decentralized Governance Organization (DGO). In order to achieve this goal, we need an additional 10 jurors to add to the existing initial members who can vote.

Contest submission requirements

Applicants must provide a curriculum vitae that demonstrates the following:

  • Knowledge of IT and/or blockchain technologies
  • Proof of solid understanding of decentralized governance
  • Experience as a product owner
  • List of companies you worked for and/or are currently employed by
  • Social network identity (Telegram ID, LinkedIn ID, Github ID)

Winner rights and duties

Winners will get the right to be a juror for each Free TON contest going forward and get the same reward as each contest describes for jurors. In order to get the jury reward described in each contest, the juror must do the following:

  1. Each juror should review each contest and its requirements here under “Contests”.

  2. The juror should review each contestant’s submission and determine if each submission is within the scope of his or her understanding to judge it, and then vote as follows:

    a. If outside of juror competence, the juror should vote to “Abstain”.
    b. If within juror competence, the juror should vote on a scale of 1-to-10 with 1 representing least and 10 representing most qualified submissions.
    c. If the submission is inappropriate, the PDF file is unopenable or corrupt, etc., the juror should vote not to score at all.

  3. The juror should provide constructive feedback in the appropriate field describing the reason for their score.

As any civic duty dictates, every juror must remain objective to the best of his/her abilities in regard to voting, i.e., stick to the facts and the facts only, leaving any personal feelings aside.

Jury members cannot judge submissions from themselves, organizations they belong to/companies they work for. It’s the responsibility of the Free TON DGO Jury members to declare their affiliation and withdraw from voting. This reason constitutes a valid excuse not to participate in voting in such a contest.

If a member of the jury does not score and provide feedback to 3 or more contests in which they did not participate, the members can draft a proposal to remove such a juror by a vote from the initial members.

Procedural remarks

Participants must correctly upload their applications to the Free TON DGO Jury contest (in PDF format) in order for the jurors to view them. If the application can’t be opened or is submitted in the wrong format, the candidate will be rejected by the jury.

Participants must submit their applications before the deadline of the contest. If the application is submitted late, it will be rejected.

All submissions must include the contestant’s social network identity, such as a Telegram ID, LinkedIn ID or Github ID by which jurors can verify that the submission belongs to the individual who submitted it. ​If not, the submission may be rejected.

Any juror may contact any contestant via Telegram in order to ask questions or ask for clarity of submissions. Failure to respond or answer questions can affect the score.


Anyone can participate, but Free TON does not distribute Tons to US citizens or entities.

I have added my submission

Hello dear community and jury members!
My name is Denis.
In addition to my main job, I have been a crypto enthusiast since 2016. I followed the TON project from its first announcement. In early May, I learned that a team of independent validators decided to continue Pavel Durov’s project, on the very first day I supported the Declaration of Decentralization. Since then, I have been constantly following the development of the project, taking part in competitions.
Having a technical education, I am well versed in the principles and algorithms of blockchain operation.
I hope to be useful in the work of the jury for the Free TON Decentralized Governance Organization
I attach a general summary in the application on the portal. If necessary, I am ready to answer questions on the specified contacts.

Hi, all members of the Free TON community!

My name is Roman. The first time I got to know about cryptocurrency was back in 2009 and since that time I started monitoring the news in this field. The turning point was in 2015 when I became extremely interested in cryptocurrency and thenceforth I’ve read a number of books, articles and absorbed a lot of information to enrich my knowledge and understanding about it.

Getting back to the present, I work as a Freelance Front End Engineer that’s why I will have enough free time which I can devote to jury responsibilities and my knowledge will be useful and helpful.

I’m following Free TON from the very beginning since it has just started and I clearly understand that Free TON is the Future! Also, I have a lot of friends and colleagues developers who share my point of view and can become active community members.

I fully share the principles and approaches described in the Declaration of Decentralization, and I really like the project itself, so I want to take a more active part in it.
