  • If less than five projects are handed in, the competition will be cancelled
  • If a team wants to submit more than one project, that is fine. Each project will be considered on its merits, whoever submits it

Help

  • See the presentation linked just below, including three videos showing Byteball features
  • Download the platform/wallet from https://byteball.org, get millions of free tokens from the fun-coins faucet in the wallet, and enough Bytes (Byteball currency) for transaction fees from @Punqtured or @Slackjore or some other local person, and try out things
  • Team contacts may ask questions directly on the Byteball Slack^ at http://slack.byteball.org (Channel #byteball_use-a-thon). Display the username "USB_TeamNNN", where NNN is your team number. Note that anyone can see these messages (there is no private help available). The three main people answering your Use-a-Thon questions are Punqtured, Suirelav and Slackjore. They are all in the UK/EU time zones (UTC +1/+2), although others may be able to answer general Byteball questions when these three are not available
  • The rest of this wiki is very informative too.

^ To get on Slack, Team contacts can either:

  • Go through slack.byteball.org and click one of the social media buttons Twitter, Facebook, Reddit or Linkedin. Depending on several factors (account age, number of followers etc.) you can get an immediate invite; otherwise you will receive an email from @cryptkeeper in which he will ask for other means of authentication. OR
  • Email Punqtured at use-a-thon@byteball.org from your usb.ve account giving your name and Team number. Ask for the invitation. He will forward your info to @cryptkeeper.
