Only individuals who are the age of majority or more can participate in the Hackathon. Please bear in mind that the age of majority is determined by each individual country of residence of each Participant and which threshold is legally regulated by the applicable local law.

In order to participate in the Hackathon, organizations (private entrepreneurs, NGO-s and legal entities) should already duly exist according to the applicable local law in the country of domicile.

Teams can form prior to the sign-up for the Hackathon or during the Hackathon. All Participants (except for Participants who act solely in the capacity of Mentors) are distributed in teams according to their choice, or might receive suggestions from the organization that can be accepted at the discretion of the Participants. A team can consist of only one Participant or up to 5 participants. Participants in the teams and the respective projects are appointed in the submission template for the project. The project submission template is available for drafting and including/modifying team members immediately after Participants register for the Hackathon. The Administrator shall treat as team members only those who are included in the final list submitted together with the project itself. The Team Representatives are solely responsible for the inclusion of all team members as agreed between them and the other Participants should make sure that they are included in the submission template before submitting to the Administrator. The Administrator shall not bear any responsibility for the submitted list of team members which is final. Changes cannot be made to the list after the official final submission of the project.

When teams are formed, each shall appoint a team member to represent, act and enter the submitted project on their behalf (hereinafter referred to as “Team Representative”).

We request from all Winners to fill in the information regarding the SuperHero Wallet addresses carefully. The Winning Participants understand and agree that without the right and correct address, the Administrator/the Partner would not be able to transfer the prize to the corresponding address. This might result in sending the prize to a completely different person/organization or not being able to send the prize at all.

The Team Representatives are solely responsible for the allocation of the prize among the winning team members. The sole responsibility the Administrator and the Partner undertake is to transfer the prizes as arranged above to the provided SuperHero Wallet addresses within the established time frame.

NO PROJECT CAN RECEIVE MORE THAN ONE PRIZE - for more information please refer to art. 8 of the present Official Rules.

The Administrator and/or the Partner will not award a Prize if there are no submitted projects in the Hackathon which comply with the requirements in art. 7 below, or if there are no eligible Participants or projects for a specific Prize category. For eligible will be considered projects that score at least half of the maximum score.

During their project work, the teams of Participants will count on mentors whose role is to provide guidance throughout the process. Mentors will assist the teams through the applications for correspondence Discord and/or Telegram.

The Administrator conducts an initial pre-evaluation of the submitted projects. The Administrator reserves the right to decide at his sole discretion which of the submitted projects to be assessed by the panel of judges and which will not based solely on objective criteria such as submission of the project within the timeframes and deadlines provided hereto, submission of all required documentation, alignment with the scope of the Hackathon and the prize titles and awards, fulfilment of all requirements arranged in art. 7, 7.1., 7.2. and/or 7.3. of the present Official Rules and any other aspect of compliance with the present Official Rules. The Administrator may at its own discretion decide whether to disclose which projects were admitted to the judges panel for evaluation and which not. This initial pre-evaluation is a compulsory prerequisite for the admission of the projects to the judges. 

The Administrator shall select a panel of judges to evaluate the submitted projects. In order to preserve their fair-mindedness, the judges are not allowed to participate in the Hackathon in any other capacity apart from the one of a judge. Therefore, judges cannot be lectors, mentors or people involved in the organization and supervision of the Hackathon itself.

The judges may be employees of the Administrator or external contractors / business partners with competence in the sphere. The judges may or may not be disclosed individually by the Administrator on the websites of the Hackathon. The panel of judges may vary according to the title of the prize due to their expertise and competence in a specific area. Therefore, a different configuration in the panel is possible for the different titles. The Administrator preserves its right to change the panel of judges/few judges or only one before or during the period of judging.

Judges will evaluate each submitted project with a score from 1 (one) to 5 (five) – 5 being the maximum. The judges shall score based on the following criteria:

  • • Criterion No. 1 - Use of technology : Use of AE protocol unique features – forms 25% of the score;
  • • Criterion No. 2 - Achieved development:  Completeness of delivered submissions – forms 15 % of the score;
  • • Criterion No. 3- Feasibility: How easily can the solution be implemented? - forms 20 % of the score;
  • • Criterion No.4 - Innovation: How unique is the concept of the solution? – forms 20% of the score;
  • • Criterion No. 5 - Impact: How will this solution help solving current users's problems? - forms 20 % of the score.

Judges decide which teams are winning solely based on their own estimation and subjective opinion. For eligible to win will be considered projects that score at least half of the maximum score. 

Each submitted project competes in all prize categories: “Best Superhero.com New DeFi feature”, “Best DeFi Solution”, “Superhero Community award”, “Best use of Æ tech”, “Most impactful project” and “Best prototype” (the last prize is the only prize a team can compete for when the submitted project is not fully functional).

The judges decide which teams are winning only in prize categories “Best Superhero.com New DeFi feature”, “Best DeFi Solution”, “Best use of Æ tech”, “Most impactful project” and “Best prototype”.

The decision who wins the “Superhero Community award” is based on the community voting principle. All submitted projects are both passing an evaluation by the judges in relation to the above-mentioned prize categories and they are published on the www.superhero.com website where via the voting app Participants and the decentralized community of Superhero can give their votes for the project which they think should win. There are no limitations as who can vote on the website for this prize category. The prize is awarded to the project which collects the highest number of votes. If two projects have the same number of votes, the winning team will be the one whose project has more staked tokens in their votes according to the voting app in Superhero. No project can receive more than one prize. If the project voted highest by the Superhero community wins in any other of the prize categories decided by the judges with higher monetary value (in this case “Best Superhero.com New DeFi feature” or “Best DeFi Solution”), then the second project with the highest number of votes for the “Superhero Community award” after the first one will be pronounced as winning.

In case two or more projects receive the same score from the judges for one prize, the winning team will be the one who has scored the highest on Criterion No. 1 - Use of technology : Use of AE protocol unique features. If the scores are equal once more, the highest result on the 4th Criterion (Innovation: How unique is the concept of the solution?) shall be decisive.

No project can receive more than one prize.If from the judges’ assessment a project is eligible to win in more than one prize category, the judges choose the project to be awarded only with the prize title with higher monetary value (e.g. The judges evaluate that a project fulfills the criteria for winning both “Best DeFi Solution” and “Best use of Æ tech”, then this project will only win the prize for the “Best DeFi Solution” and the “Best use of Æ tech” will be awarded to the project ranked immediately after).

8.2. The following judging rules apply for the Participants who compete for the prize “Best Mentor” sponsored by the Administrator: 

The decision who wins “Best Mentor” is taken by the Administrator after voting by the Participants in the Hackathon. The Best Mentor is chosen upon the activity, guidance and effectiveness of the advices provided to teams on the applications Discord and/or Telegram. The Administrator shall take under significant consideration the voting of the Participants, however, the Administrator reserves its right to choose at its own discretion as winning a different mentor upon its monitoring of the Discord and Telegram communication channels.

8.3. The following judging rules apply for the projects which compete for the prizes “Best AEX9 Fungible Token usage” and “Most performant Sophia smart contract” sponsored by the Partner: 

The Partner solely evaluates the submitted projects for these prizes and selects the winners. The Partner shall not use the assistance of a judge panel and the decision who wins the prizes will be based solely on the estimation and subjective opinion of the Partner. The winners of these prizes will be announced together with the other winners as arranged in the present Official Rules.
