We live in difficult times. And, unfortunately, our community is highly dependent on world events around us. Three years ago, it seemed easy to send a t-shirt anywhere in the world. Now it's a quest with many unknowns. Just a few months ago, it was not difficult to send a reward to the problem writer. But now, we are cut off from the outside world and regulated by multiple new laws.
And here it is very important not to lose, not to break what has already been done. Don't stand still, move forward. I am very glad and grateful to the problem writers and coordinators that in March we managed to hold 10 ratings (we held 9, come to participate in the tenth). Thanks to everyone who took part in the preparation!
And I want to share another great news. Our friends NEAR has come up with the initiative to support the community during this difficult time. We are pleased to announce that the upcoming rounds will be funded by NEAR, which will help with the payment of rewards to problem writers and coordinators. This is a timely and important help. Thanks!
It will be easier and faster for us if the problem writers or coordinators have the opportunity to accept a reward in the form of a cryptocurrency transfer. In this case, we are ready to transfer 25% more and make the transfer much faster. Oh, it's a pity we can't send t-shirts with crypto.
