Other questions

I signed for more activities that I can accomplish

We understand that your work may be affected by other commitments, so as long as you promptly contact us and update within reasonable time frame (generally seven (7) days from application approval), you will get partial credit for completed work, and incomplete one will be reassigned to a different applicant

Is it acceptable to use an announcement, post or any other message on a social media site or in the messenger, instead of a forum post?

No, it is not. We’ve identified forums as critical for raising awareness about our program, so use of any other media or channel will not be accepted as completed activity. Unfortunately, we also have no bandwidth to validate other media channels.

May I post in several regional forums?

Yes, we encourage and appreciate spreading the word, but we are unable to count this activity as eligible. Our reward program may only cover posts on the most popular blockchain forum in your region.

What will happen if two participants complete the same activity, such as publish a post on the regional forum?

Only one program participant may be assigned to a particular activity at any given time. Bounty program participants have to reserve the activity in advance.

Do you count activities on global forums which have regional threads?

Yes, it counts for countries which do not have their own national forums. If such forum exists, we prefer to have the post published there. When in doubt, contact us for review and confirmation of your choice.

What do I do if there is no local blockchain forum in my region?

Contact us. Generally, in that case you can publish a post in the regional thread of the global forum. However, it is important to get confirmation first.

How do I report on my activity progress?

First of all, make sure that you are indeed the person assigned to complete the translation. Second, send an email to us with links to posts you have made, your BitcoinTalk username and any comments.

What do I do if I need more content?

If you need more content or links to translation of white paper and FAQ for your regional thread on BitcoinTalk or blockchain forum in your region, please contact us, and we’ll either provide you with content or put in touch with translation assignee.
