๐Ÿ’กWhat is the DeFi Kitchen?

On the 9th of March we held our inaugural industry event. This industry event & hackathon was organized to provide an opportunity for the community to come together and learn about everything thatโ€™s happening in the crypto space ๐Ÿš€
We assembled a fantastic selection of A-list speakers/panelists from a variety of backgrounds, including representatives from well-known DeFi protocols, institutions and project founders.

โš’๏ธ Judging Process

All of our judges have followed a systemic set of judging criteria to make the judging across projects as fair as possible. The following criteria were taken into account for all projects submitted:

  • ๐Ÿ”ธ Decentralized: How decentralized the tech really is.
  • ๐Ÿ”ธ Polishing: How clean is the code and how polished is the UI?
  • ๐Ÿ”ธ Originality: Does it bring something new or some nice addition to existing tech?
  • ๐Ÿ”ธ Timeliness: Additional points have gone to teams that submitted their work by the deadline before extension (16th March)!

It is important to note that each sponsor retained the right to allocate the total amount of prizes at their own discretion. Each sponsor had the right to deduct or add to the allocation of prizes depending on criteria like:

  • How well a team followed the rules according to the docs/description.
  • The way the project has been submitted.
  • The right to opt into a 'no payout' if none of the submissions fit the described task.
  • Any submission was able to win more than 1 category/sponsor.

๐Ÿ’ฐ How To Claim Your Prize

To avoid impersonators emailing/DMing the judges/projects directly we have the following procedure in place:

  1. All sponsors that selected the winners have access to the email of the winners.
  2. Sponsors are responsible for sending the prizes.
  • Sponsors will reach out to you and ask for a non custodial (meaning not an address from an exchange, but an address from something like MetaMask or Ledger) ERC20 address where they can send the prize to.

Should you run into any issues feel free to DM us on devpost. We are unable to reply to any messages about prizes outside of devpost because of impersonation risk.
