Our judges will determine how well your product answers each criterion and give out points accordingly. The maximum point you can get for a criterion is 10 points. Hence, the highest score any team can get is 60 points (6 criteria).

The points are given out from our leaders at Alpha Finance Lab, Tascha Punyaneramitdee, Nipun Pitimanaaree, and Arin Trongsantipong. While you can earn additional 10 points from ALPHA stakers on Alpha Tokenomics through the community vote criterion.
