Announcing the January winners for Tezos Community Reward Program

In October 2020, in collaboration with TQ Tezos, we introduced a new rewards program for the Tezos Community in which up to 5000 tez will given to contributors across various categories.

Please keep in mind that this is the second iteration of the Community Rewards Program and changes are continually being incorporated based on the feedback that is received from the community such as the addition and subtraction of certain categories, which will be reflected on the submission page. As a reminder, any tez that is unclaimed or unused will be rolled back into the overall pot that is used to fund this program. Not every category will always have a winner(s).

Numerous factors are used when evaluating submissions such as, quality of submissions, quality of activity, number of submissions, and verifiable proof of activity done by the nominee (no single factor is determinative of a winner, as all factors were weighed to select winners). The judges would like to note that for each category, they are looking for the respective monthly related activity meaning submissions should reflect activities done for that current month, i.e.; month of February activities (this applies to all categories except the OG category).

As a reminder to the reward winners, the awards are all distributed through Kukai and DirectAuth. If you are having any issues claiming your awards, please message us at: here.
