There are 4 judging groups, one each from the sponsors offering bounties(Matic Network, Celer Network, Cocos-BCX and Marlin Protocol). Each of the sponsors will be available to be approached for judging at 4 different meeting rooms allotted to them.

Submission of projects on Devfolio is a pre-requisite to get judged on Devfolio. Teams will need to mention the bounties they think their project submission qualifies for in the 'Technologies Used' section while submitting (Tags: matic, celer, marlin, cocosbcx). After submitting the projects, the teams will set up their demo and visit the sponsors in the allotted meeting rooms whose bounty they think their project submission qualifies for. Teams can visit multiple sponsors if they think their project submission qualifies for more than one bounty.

The team can use up to 5 minutes (eg: 4 minutes demo and 1-minute for judges Q & A) max to talk about what their hack is. They will have the opportunity to talk about what they built, why they built it, and demo how their project works. The team may talk about their project with a powerpoint presentation but they will still have to demo what was built. It is not required to make a slideshow.

The judges will be rating each team on Technicality, Originality, Practicality, Aesthetics, and overall Wow Factor of the project. The judging group will then be picking winners who be will be announced during the closing ceremony. The winners will be invited on stage where they will again get 5 minutes to present their project on stage to all attendees.
