Update (2016-06-06): The sponsors have been selected! See the 2016 prize announcement.
Sponsoring the 2016 Underhanded Crypto Contest is a great way to show that your organization supports innovative attack-oriented research into making cryptocurrencies more secure. We’re looking for a couple of organizations to sponsor the first and second place prizes for this year’s contest. The sponsorship options are:
- Gold: $500 USD. One gold sponsorship slot is open which will be used for the first-place prize.
- Silver: $250 USD. One silver sponsorship slots is open which will be used as the second-place prize.
The gold sponsor gets their company logo (with hyperlink) on the front page of our website until the 2017 contest begins. The hyperlinked logo will also be included in all future blog posts about the 2016 contest and its winners. The silver sponsor gets the same thing except the gold sponsor’s logo will be larger, distinguished as being the gold sponsor, and will come first on the page. Sponsor logos will also be displayed and mentioned in any talks we give about the 2016 contest.
Sponsors will be responsible for sending the U.S. dollar prize to the winners our volunteer judges select, and for their own tax implications of doing so. Contest winners will be responsible for their own tax implications of receiving the prize.
If you’re interested in being either a gold or silver sponsor, please email Taylor at [email protected]
