Has anyone been accepted yet?

I signed up yesterday around noon, and still haven't heard back...does that mean I didn't get accepted or that they're just late on getting back to people?

    Thanks for your question and interest in the MinChip Developer Challenge.
    The response to our challenge has been excellent, thank-you. We are processsing the requests as quickly as possible but we are experiencing some delays due to the high volumes.
    Rest assured we will notify all applicants of their status.
    So if you haven't heard anything it is because we have not yet processed your application.
    We know everyone is eager to start working on the evolution of currency.

    Hi Bob,

    Thanks for your speedy reply! I was wondering if you were able to update us with how long an average wait would be before we would hear back? (Just so we're not constantly hitting refresh on our computers :p)

    I cant wait to hear back from them either :)

    I hope my idea dost get rejected simply because it involves bitcoin

    Our best estimate is two business days from your application date. Thanks for your patience.

    @Tri N

    Cool! so.... what are you going to build? :)

    I was accepted today (Saturday after Good Friday) and I applied about 2 days ago. It looks like they're working the weekend.

    Just got my notice five minutes ago, so it looks like they're working Easter Sunday as well.

    I'm trying to register but is says it no longer accepts submissions. Is it a temporary issue?

  •   •   almost 12 years ago

    I hope it's temporary as well..

    The rules state that signup is open until some time in July, but I suppose that, if they've already accepted 500 applications, then they could close early.

    I suspect we'll get some official confirmation Monday or Tuesday, when the forum moderator or whoever's appropriate is back from their holiday weekend.

    Hi all,

    The registration form is back. Please visit the Register to Participate tab again.

    Sorry for the inconvenience and thanks for your patience. There has been a high volume of interest in the MintChip Challenge and Friday and Monday are holidays. Please allow a couple of business days for follow up on your registrations.

    All the best,
    Peter

    I just received my acceptance email. I registered on April 5. :)

  •   •   almost 12 years ago

    Hi,

    I applied on April 5 and have not heard back yet. Can you please let me know by when I can expect to hear back.
    If there is additional information I can provide to strengthen my application, would be glad to do so.

    Thanks.

    I also applied on the 5th and haven't heard back yet. As @PeterR suggested we wait two business days (and Fri & Mon were holidays) I'm hopeful that we'll hear something today.

    Is the registration closed? I can't seem to register the website comes back with nothing:

    Error 324 (net::ERR_EMPTY_RESPONSE): The server closed the connection without sending any data.

    Will everyone who applies be accepted? Otherwise, what criteria are used to make that determination?

    Hi Link,

    Thanks for writing. Can you send me an email at support@challengepost.com so I can investigate the issue you are experiencing?

    Best,
    Marny

    Thanks for the quick reply Marny. I just tried to resubmit my application to reproduce the error and it went through with no hiccups. Really weird. But I'm keeping my fingers crossed that I'm not too late

    Just got my mintchips!

    Marny and Bob,
    We just submitted our application for the MintChip challenge - We have an active codebase and a payment device prototype for retail use that we will like to enter in the challenge.

    Please review our application and let us know if we can participate or not. I will be happy to demo our solution to you as well.
