SONM Opens a $200,000 Challenge for the Tech Industry’s Most Innovative Developers

MOSCOW – SONM, the decentralized system and marketplace based on blockchain technology, is announcing its contest for the world’s most talented, innovative developers and tech enthusiasts to help shape the future of fog computing alongside the SONM team.

SONM is a decentralized fog computing platform and power marketplace for real world applications such as big data analysis, CGI rendering, scientific calculation, and machine learning. The marketplace allows users to connect their personal devices to one virtual space, creating a platform where consumers and suppliers can rent and purchase power from one another to be used for each computerized task.

SONM is on the search for top tier developers and tech aficionados by unleashing an open challenge, made up of two stages that test participants’ skills in solving the computerized tasks for one of the most exciting projects in the industry. Stage One is open to all who enter and will see entrants develop on Docker containers. There are 14 tasks to choose from, and entrants will work alongside SONM advisors on the task they choose. Stage Two will see deployment on the SONM network with the new API (v2). This stage will only be open to those who have been successful in Stage One and who have been invited to participate in this second round by their advisor.

Task winners will have access to the SONM main net and will be given an additional amount of SONM tokens for internal exchange. They will also have the opportunity to become the one of the first to run a live application on the SONM platform. Task prize money will vary according to task difficulty. Winners also also benefit from working and learning alongside experienced fog computing experts, while making new contacts and making a real impact on the most powerful platform in the world.

The deadline for Stage One Submissions is May 25, 2018. The deadline for Stage Two Submissions will be June 29, 2018. The winners will be revealed on July 03, 2018. Prizes will be paid in ETH/BTC based on the exchange rate on payment date. Link for entry or further submission instructions here:
