The technical committee conducts assessments based on innovation and contribution, evaluates the actual effect and issues a report. The number of projects that will receive a reward is no more than five. Project leader rewards 50,000NAX, proposal sponsor rewards 50,000NAX


Due to the lack of innovation, some proposals can be immediately closed if they meet any of the following criteria. When closing a proposal,a message from the moderator needs to be added specifying why the proposal has been closed:

  • Plagiarized proposal.
  • Although not mentioned on GN, the same project is already completed or in progress.
  • The proposer accidentally submitted the proposal repeatedly.
  • The proposal description was not completed or the information was missing significant required details. The technical committee should try to communicate with the proposer and only close a proposal if they are unwilling to improve or complete the proposal.

The following proposals will not be closed thereby leaving the decision to the governance nodes to decide:

  1. Multiple proposers have submitted different solutions to the same problem;
  2. Separate proposals have the same solution to the same problem but the project budget and duration differ.
