Challenge 3: Welcome Wagon (1200 pts*)

We’ve welcome thousands of new community members over the past few months, and a vital part of our community growth involves helping new joiners navigate the community.

Welcome and help new members by asking and answering questions, offering guidance, directing them to resources (i.e. Hello and welcome! How did you hear about Mina? Where are you from? Let me know if I can help you find/understand something!)

There is no submission form for this challenge: the O(1)Labs team will select community members who have gone above and beyond to help people and maintain a positive community spirit. We can only award points for what we see, so make sure you’re doing it in one of the official testnet channels so everyone can learn, and share your contributions with the community!

Challenge 4: Values Champion (1200 pts*)

Mina is powered by its participants, and a community with strong values is important for success. We invite everyone in the Mina community to help each other and to create a safe and positive experience for everyone. We will be awarding 1200 pts* points to the community members who best demonstrate our core values within the Mina community:

  • Respect –– 1200 pts* We respect each other; our inherent worth, abilities, time, and ideas. That’s why we stand for equality and fairness. Why we’re committed to decentralization. We act with integrity. We work hard to make things feel simple. And why we strive to be inclusive and accessible.
  • Curiosity –– 1200 pts* It’s what connects us all. Our obsession to understand, solve, and know. Our love of collaboration, open exploration, and objective engagement. Our attraction to big questions and “impossible” problems. Our passion to create technology and systems that serve everyone. Our insatiable drive to learn and grow. Our imagination, at work.
  • Excellence –– 1200 pts* We don’t expect perfection. But each of us demands the best of ourselves. We’re here to create elegant solutions. Symphonic systems. Technical beauty. We’re committed to our community and to creating tech they can depend on. We enjoy the process. But we also deliver results.
  • Openness –– 1200 pts* We believe in being open. In communicating proactively. Being responsive, available and accountable to the community. Empowering people with the information they need to participate. Sharing where we are in the process. Owning our mistakes. And collaborating to serve our vision with humility. It’s the only way to earn trust and create a fair future.

Challenge 5: The Great Mina Meme-Off (up to 5,000 pts*)

Hey, everyone, I’m glad to be a part of community an excited to see protocol’s mainnet live and what great SNAPPS will be developed. zk-SNARKS are also astonishing technology which I’ve tried to explain to our community here: https://youtu.be/8GOY8uFal4I Would appreciate any feedback on the video, tried to explain as simple as I could, the tech itself quite complicated if you’re diving deeply into It. This is also interesting how easy all of those formulas from Tech paper squeezed into 2 main theses: lightweight and private. Well done Mina (Coda) team!
