Utilization of Blockchain Technology (5 points): How well suited is the concept for blockchain? Is there a clear need for a token, smart contract, and distributed ledger technology? Was an EOSIO smart contract successfully implemented?

Creativity (5 points): How creative was the team in developing an innovative solution for the challenge? Is the idea defensible or unique?

Impact (5 points): Did the team create an application that can have a real and valuable impact? Is the idea feasible / if pursued could it actually work in the real world?

Scalability (5 points): What is the growth potential of this application?  What impact can it have on the world as a whole?

Teams of up to 5 participants are allowed. All team members must have completed the participation agreement to compete.

You may not begin your project until the competition officially begins. Please don’t come in and build on top of previous projects if you want to win.  

Teams have full ownership of everything they build and are free to do with it as they wish whether they win or not.

Winning teams will be subject to a code-review at some point following the event or immediately before the competition ends.
