NEO Global Development has announced the launch of three competitions to celebrate the two year anniversary of the NEO MainNet. Each competition is tailored for different skill sets and abilities, and will give the community the chance to win GAS prizes.

Community Videos

The first competition calls on the community to record a short video of themselves sending anniversary wishes to the NEO ecosystem. To be eligible for prizes, participants must upload the video to Twitter with the hashtag #2YearsOfNEOMainNet and tag the @NEO_Blockchain account in the tweet. Contestants are encouraged to “Tell us about your favorite projects, moments, events, or what you’re most looking forward to in the future.”

NGD will award an increasing amount of GAS and draw more winners depending on how many people enter the competition.

  • 10 winners will receive 10 GAS each if the total entrants reaches 50.
  • An additional 10 winners will receive 40 GAS each if the total entrants reaches 200.
  • An additional 10 winners will receive 80 GAS each if the total entrants reaches 800.
