On New Year's Eve, TON blockchain projects have organised activities where you can get different rewards, including various tokens, NFTs, Toncoins, and Telegram Premium. All tasks can be performed directly in Telegram through a special bot called Community. Today, we will tell you what this bot was made for, what campaigns are running there now, and how to take part to grab some sweet rewards for the New Year.
How to join TON New Year contests on Telegram
1️⃣ Go to the Community bot;
2️⃣ Follow appearing tips to launch the Mini App;
3️⃣ Choose a campaign and complete the tasks.
For completing some tasks, you will need Toncoins. That is where itez comes in: buy TON via bank card, SEPA, or Google Pay smoothly and easily.
And now, let’s dive into how Telegram’s campaigns work, what are the conditions, and what prizes you can get!
Exploring Telegram Mini Apps: what is the Community Bot
Usually, a campaign offers users tasks, for completing which they can receive points. Then, considering the quantity of points, participants get various prizes. The tasks can range from subscribing to the projects' socials and connecting their TON address to performing different transactions, such as swaps or providing liquidity.
TMA work differs from usual Telegram bots, which users control by commands in chat. They imply a separate interface, meaning it works as an app that opens right inside the messenger. This makes it possible to participate in such initiatives at one tap without leaving Telegram.
Some dApps on TON, in addition to web versions for browsers, have their own TMA. For example, non-custodial TON Space works like that, allowing you to manage your assets on TON from the @wallet bot. Storm Trade, a perpetual trading platform, allows you to trade different assets with leverage right inside Telegram.
Right now, Community Bot is running two campaigns timed to New Year; let's take a closer look at them.
New Year Countdown by @wallet: get Toncoins and a one-year Telegram Premium
The New Year Countdown is a campaign that the @wallet team is running through the Community bot. It is great for new users who have not yet tried to interact with crypto before. It is also open to old @wallet users. Here are the main details.
🗓️ The New Year Countdown runs from December 26 to 30; each day, there is a new challenge.
🏆 The prizes include exclusive Egg NFTs of the future Egg Fight Club game on TON; a chance to enter the raffle for a TON; a one-year Telegram Premium subscription. A total of 5,000 toncoins and 100 one-year Telegram Premium subscriptions will be raffled off.
✅ Three tasks are available now: top up @Wallet with $10 or 5 TON, send Toncoin in Telegram to a friend, and create and connect a Ton Space wallet. The new task will open tomorrow.
The campaign is simple, the prizes are nice, and we advise you to participate. If you have not used the TON ecosystem before, this is a good reason to start diving in.
TON Winter Fest campaign from the main TON protocols: prize pool $30,000 in project tokens
TON Winter Fest is held in collaboration with popular projects on TON:
💰 STONfi, one of the largest decentralised exchanges on TON;
🎮 Ton Punks, a simple game, similar in mechanics to “Rock Paper Scissors”;
🤑 Storm Trade, first and only leveraged perpetual DEX on TON;
🏦 EVAA, first lending protocol on TON;
TON Winter Fest involves performing tasks aimed at getting to know all these projects. There are a lot of different activities, e.g., tasks for swaps on STONfi, trading and providing liquidity on Storm Trade, or staking PUNK tokens in TON Punks. Points are given for all tasks. A leaderboard is formed based on those points users get.
TON Winter Fest is harder than the New Year Countdown, but it is longer and allows you to dive deeper into TON. The campaign will run until January 17th. The top 100 participants will share $20,000 in tokens, and 200 random participants will get $50 each also in tokens. This brings the total prize pool to $30,000.
Be careful and DYOR before participating in the challenging activities. Read the task descriptions carefully and ask questions in the project’s chats in case you have difficulties with anything. We wish you the best of luck in the raffles!
