If you are a student, you can also earn BASE tokens by entering the Blockabase University Competition. We decided to start this competition in order to give the younger generations, whom often feel left out in decision-making and the shaping of their world, an opportunity to create and be part of the next generation search engine that will be entirely based on human input.
Why a student competition?
We believe that the willingness of students to learn and experiment will provide a solid foundation for the quality and culture of Blockabase. The vast domains of interest that students study can be shared on Blockabase and will be valuable to the overall community of users.
On the other hand, the opportunity we present to participate in a new wave of tokenised utilities will help young people to understand the working of the upending token economy and the BASE token rewards can help them accumulate wealth in exchanfor their participation in building Blockabase. A healthy competition between students and universities is an incentive in itself and gamifies the experience that helps in the organic growth of the community and search engine.
How will Blockabase define the winner?
At the end of each month, the Blockabase team will filter all the users that have university emails in their Blockabase profile together with their BASE token earnings over the month-long period. The results will be compared and consequently disclosed on the Blockabase Intelligence platform. The winning university will be rewarded 100,000 BASE tokens to be shared between the 5 most active students, the student union and the university itself.
The 5 students that have accumulated most token rewards will receive their BASE tokens to their Blockabase account which are subject to the same conditions as regular token rewards. These 5 students will share 30% of the 100,000 BASE tokens reward, thus 6% per student.
The student union of the winning university and the university can reach out to us and after our due diligence to ensure the authenticity of the claim, they will be able to create an account and claim their reward. The student union will be entitled to 20% and the university to 50% of the total reward of 100,000 BASE tokens.
