Unusual cooperation offer:
Hackerdom is an international organization that hosts computer security competitions, educational projects, and CTFs. CTF is an annual open intercollegiate information security competition. The association is holding RuCTF for the thirteenth time.
Also, HackerDom has been holding annual international online information security competitions for 10 years.
The company teaches all developers from zero and Junior levels absolutely free. For example, one of the authors of the course on computer security for beginners is Andrey Gein, a senior developer at Yandex. Such courses are designed for people with minimal development experience and students of the first and second years of study at universities. For 10 years of work, the company has trained over 1000 students. The company rents servers, task authors, and domains at its own expense. In 2019, 384 development teams from different countries took part in the latest offline competitions.
The next event is slated to take place online starting December 26th.
Free Ton is invited to become one of the sponsors of RuCTFE 2020 in December.
The company offers the following benefits for Free Ton in cooperation:
- Promote Free TON Crystal to the international market. Demonstrate Free TON as a reliable transaction processing tool and attract new users to the system.
- Attract talented developers. Our competitors are able to solve various complex computer security problems. This could expand the professional community to work on various Free TON projects.
- Increase Free TON brand awareness. Besides all the awards, we can promote Free TON on RuCTFE social media. We could talk about the Free TON BugBounty program so that our players can evaluate smart contacts and other components of the Free TON infrastructure or test the code. In addition to this, we could explain how you can contribute to open source development and other Free TON contests.
According to the team, valuable prizes can only increase interest and attract more people to participate in Free TON projects.
HackerDom is requesting an amount of 500,000 crystalls, of which 250,000 will be allocated for the prize fund, 150,000 for the management and management team, 5,000 for the conference speakers, 75,000 for the company’s fund for future events.
It should be noted that potentially, this can become one of the most expensive collaborations and this has already begun to be noted by community users under the proposal publication. Will the community really benefit from such a large investment?
It is planned to allocate 120 call-up places at competitions, each team will receive 12,450 TON. The rest of the teams will receive a welcome bonus of 100 tons.
Also, the company plans to hold a conference, which will be attended by over 500 people. Promotion at this conference will be part of the sponsorship collaboration. The conference is planned online. Among the speakers of the conference, 25,000 tons will be distributed.
The total number of potentially attracted users is not reported. But we can safely say that the entire audience of potential cooperation is the target audience of Free Ton. IT people, developers, companies, and various teams. How do you feel about the cooperation proposal and the HakerDom company? Is the price of the investment cost, potentially attracted to the audience justified?
