Hacken CEO Dyma Budorin commented on the vision behind the pioneering competition, stating:
"We are moving to a new level. I am sure that the idea of creating a cryptocurrency used to be unrealizable. Today, we invite hackers from all over the world to take part in the First Grey Hat Hackers Ideas Competition and we are ready to support the brightest and seemingly unattainable ideas”.
Anyone with a unique Idea can join the competition. Not only will all ideas be helping the cyber community to combat crime, but participants will put themselves in the running to win some of the 1,000.000 HAI total prize pool, and the additional $5,000 USDT special prize provided my Mr Andreo
Hacken strongly advises participants to attach pitch deck, plus a video (up to 3 mins) pitch of the idea. Ideas must have some relation to cybersecurity. Any ideas copied from existing projects will not be considered.
Participants must send their idea via this form on the website. Ideas have to be submitted until 11:59 pm Jan 31 (UTC+02:00).
In the interest of fair results the valuation of the submitted ideas will be conducted by the core Hacken team members and Mr Andreo between February 1st and February 3rd, 2021, with the semi-finalists announced on the 3rd.
