Introduction to the 2018 WAX Bounty Program
The Worldwide Asset eXchange™ team has been incredibly busy these last few months — choosing the blockchain base technology, hiring, developing partnerships, onboarding Crypto Collectibles™, attending and speaking at events, and much more.
And the community has been with us every step of the way — supporting us at events, engaging in lively discussions on Telegram, and creating content around WAX (have you seen the WAX belt buckle yet?)
In return, we want to support our community by giving you the opportunity to earn WAX in exchange for you showcasing your support of our project’s mission, use case, and tech.
And with that, we bring you:
What is the 2018 WAX Bounty Program?
WAX is a unique project, that’s unlike most others in the crypto space. Is it any wonder that the WAX bounty program will be the same?
We’re not going to ask you to meaninglessly spam your social media followers in exchange for some measly rewards. Instead, we’re going to ask you to channel your passion and enthusiasm for WAX into some killer content that helps spread the word about how the Worldwide Asset eXchange will change the future of trading digital items.
And in exchange, there are three prize tiers: entry prize, second place prize(s), and grand prize(s).
Overall, the purpose of the WAX Bounty is to encourage the community of WAX Token holders to help us market and promote the WAX Platform and the use of WAX Tokens on the platform. We want to say “thanks for being here from the beginning!” to the current WAX community members by offering additional WAX Tokens for the best WAX community-created content.
So, if you would like to help spread the word and inform more people of the advantages of all things WAX — read on below for the criteria and examples.
