Had a bit of a discussion on the PM line a while back with a @happybeing & @nicklambert regarding an open hacking contest similar to how all the big tech companies do as a way of marketing SAFE once it goes live.
The discussion kind of thawed out and mainly because there was no clear concise way for MAID to make a splash in this competitive area as it has no were near the resources compared with Google, Microsoft, Apple etc.
I’d like to open the discussion here for all and offer up the idea with a twist.
What if instead of SAFE running the competition APP developers did?
So for example you would have a SAFE app that goes live, runs some press releases and advertises their own mini hackathon which says ‘if you can obtain document XYZ from us, we will award the winner X amount of SAFE coins’ or ‘We have a treasure chest filled with X amount of SAFE coins, if your break our systems its yours for the taking’ or something along those lines and if no one achieves said task maybe you could just award people for their contributions.
What ends up happening is you have the SAFE app benefiting, the SAFE network benefiting and you distribute more SAFE coins into more hands.
Now take this idea and replicate it among more than just one app it has the potential to draw a lot of attention.
What do others think on this topic?
