What is the NUPay Bounty Program?

NUPay is creating a new way to pay. As well as cryptocurrencies we are also providing a seamless payment platform for on and offline payments. Our payment platform will allow using their membership points and cryptocurrencies for fiat payments.

The object of this NUPay Bounty is to increase the visibility and discussion of NuPay and its payment platform. All details regarding the NUPay Bounty Program are mentioned in the detailed FAQ below. All information regarding the bounty program will be posted on the official NUPay Medium Channel.

Please avoid posting bounty-related messages in the main NUPay Telegram Community.

Bounty Allocation & Campaign Section Information

How many TPCT Tokens are allocated to the NUPay Bounty Program?

Overall 2,500,000,000 TPCT will be issued. This is the total supply. Out of this, 500,000,000 TPCT will be allocated to Market Development. Within this Market Development category, 3,750,000 TPCT will be allocated to this NUPay Bounty Program — this makes up 0.15% of the overall TPCT Token supply.

In the future, we will also run additional Bounty Programs and marketing activity. Additional bounties and marketing activities will be run during the Crowd Sale, during listing on partner exchanges, and also during the commercial release of the NUPay platform and ecosystem.

**Please be aware that the total allocation amount for the NUPay Bounty Program is subject to change by the NUPay Team. Changes will always be announced prior to the change happening.**

What campaign sections does the NUPay Bounty Program have?

The NUPay Bounty Program is divided into the following 4 campaigns sections:

1.BitcoinTalk (25% / 937,500 TPCT)

2. Contents (30% / 1,125,000 TPCT)

3. Social Media (30% / 1,125,000 TPCT)

4. Translation (15% / 562,500 TPCT)

** Please be aware that the minimum number of participants for each bounty campaign section is 15 participants. This excludes the translation campaign section. In the unlikely event that the participant levels are not met, NUPay will cancel that section of the Bounty Program. The decision will be made on the then current and projected levels of participation after a few weeks of the bounty running.**

How are the Bounty rewards calculated?

Points will be used during the bounty program and allocated to participants on a weekly basis for specific tasks for that week. The accumulated points will then be exchanged into TPCT Tokens using the below formula at the end of the bounty program.

The calculation will happen at the end of the Pre-Sale, and participants will receive their TPCT tokens within 8 weeks of the ICO being finished.

How are points allocated?

Points are allocated for specific tasks, detailed below. There are several factors affecting the number of points a person receives each week. Perceived social influence, quality of work and rank on forums are all variables that effect allocated points each week. Points allocation is specific to each section, so please make sure to read each section of the NUPay Bounty Program carefully. The information can be found here or below.

How and when will NUPay provide participants with their bounty?

Bounty participants must submit an application to join the bounty program first. During the application process, we will ask participants to provide an ETH address. Once complete we will send participants their bounties within 8 weeks of NUPay officially announcing the end of our ICO on NUPay Official Medium Channel. Bounties will be sent to the submitted ETH address.

Please note that it is important that participants keep their private keys to the submitted ETH address safe. Once submitted, ETH addresses cannot be changed — in all circumstances.

How can I apply for the bounty campaign?

You can apply using the information and links to particular application forms below.

Can I join more than one campaign at a time?

Yes. Participants are allowed only one account per campaign section. Duplicate accounts in the same section will be deleted and participants will be removed from the bounty program. The Bounty is divided into the following general sections, note that some of these sections are sub-divided.

Bounty Sections:

Bitcointalk, Contents (sub-divided into Articles & Videos), Social Media (Subdivided into Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter) and Translations.

Participants can participate in multiple sections if they like. But only one account can be used per campaign section. For example: A participant can take part in the Twitter, Facebook and Instagram bounty using three separate accounts for each social media platform. But a participant cannot have two active accounts in the Twitter campaign section, for example. One account per section is the rule.

Can I participate using multiple accounts in the same bounty campaign section?

No. As above, one account per section is the rule. Participants will be removed or blocked from the bounty campaign if they are found to be using more than one account per campaign section.

Reporting Activity

How do I report my activity?

Please report your NUPay Bounty Program activities for Bitcointalk and Social Media (Facebook, Instagarm, and Twitter) to our official BitcoinTalk Bounty Thread in the comments sections. Please use this format when reporting:

<Telegram OR Bitcointalk Handle> @Example
<Bounty Campaign Section Title> Facebook Campaign

<Type of Activity #1> Likes/Shares

<Html Link to Activity #2> https://facebook.com/example_2
<Html Link to Activity #3>https://facebook.com/example_3

Your NUPay Bounty activity report MUST be submitted no later than every Monday 10:00 AM KST (for the previous weeks activity). Monday 10am KST will most likely be Sunday night in most places. Submission after this time will not be counted and considered as a failure to report activity.

NUPay: 1 Week Bounty Campaign Example

Failure to report on time or inaccessible/broken links will be disregarded and bounties will be forfeited for that week.

Why does activity report submission have to be by Monday 10 am KST?

Operationally, our Bounty Managers and NUPay Korea are based in Seoul, Korea. Monday 10 am KST will be when checks for the previous week’s work will begin the office. In most cases, Monday 10 am KST will be Sunday afternoon/evening in most places. But if you want to compare time-zones check here.

When and how will I know my points for the week?

Points allocation will be calculated and checked. This will be updated before Friday of every week and posted here<To Be Updated>. Until the ICO has been fully completed only points will be posted, not TPCT tokens. As token allocation is based on a combination of fixed and non-fixed variables, it would be impossible to provide a complete calculation until the end of the campaign.

If you have any issues with point allocations or bounties, please contact our Bounty Manager directly. Flooding (continuously posting the same request/compliant) chatrooms with complaints or requests will be met with permanent bans and removal from the bounty program.
