Contest Rules

Supports Open Source Blockchain Ecosystem. Build your apps with important NEM features: Namespaces, Mosaics, Architecture and Reputation.

Namespace

Namespaces are domain names. Each namespace is unique.

Mosaic

NEM mosaics are smart assets that expose additional properties and other features. Each smart asset must belong to a namespace to be uniquely identified.

Messaging

The NEM blockchain allows messaging of up to 1024 characters that can be sent with each transaction. Compressed files can be sent as a message of up to 1024 characters.

Address

NEM addresses are used to record transactions whether in value or in message form. They can also be used as container assets on the blockchain that can represent a single object that must be unique and updatable.

Multi-signature

Multi-sig accounts are editable on-chain contracts that can have up to 32 signatories on one multi signature account.

Storage and Retrieval of Document Proofs

The NEM blockchain can be used to uniquely store and retrieve documents using hashID.

Scoring Criteria

NEM Integration (20%)

Participants will need to demonstrate the mastery of the integration of their solution with the NEM platform. Scoring will be based on how extensive their solution integrates with the NEM platform.

User Interface (10%)

UI is based on how well a solution is designed. Scoring for this particular criteria will look at creativity in terms of colour schemes and overall layout.

User Experience (10%)

UX will take into account the ease of use of an application. Scoring will be based on the ergonomics of the application.

Usefulness (20%)

The solution must demonstrate how and where this can be applied to in the mainstream industries. Participants are expected to give a use case scenario for their solutions

Compatibility (20%)

Compatibility is the ability of a solution to be easily adapted or used in conjunction with existing mainstream application solutions.

Open Source (20%)

Applicants who choose to open source their solutions after the completion of the project will receive more points as a result.
