HackerNoon, the technology publishing platform, launched its fourth annual #Noonies 2022 in partnership with BingX and .Tech Domains. This year's theme is inspired by Star Trek and highlights the people behind up-and-coming tech, as well as the movers and shakers in the tech industry.
HackerNoon's own spin on StarTrek's "Infinite Diversity in Infinite Combinations" is a broad option to nominate hundreds of #Noonies across five major categories:
"#Noonies 2022 is live! We are excited to recognize and celebrate the people who make the internet happen," wrote CEO David Smooke in a HackerNoon story. "Our Noonies voting software has now powered over half a million votes. With this new Star Trek-themed instance at Noonies.Tech, we are recognizing the technology industry's most important bloggers, coders, leaders, writers and creators. Live long and prosper!"
For #Noonies 2022, all winners will be receiving a .Tech Domain for life as well as an official HackerNoon NFT. Select voters will receive a .Tech Domain with a usage period of 1 year. Winners of the 20 most-popular awards will also receive $50 worth of gear from the HackerNoon shop.
The voting system powering the #Noonies 2022 is developed in-house by HackerNoon and works by assigning a weightage system that elevates the voice of our contributing writers, rewards verified expertise, and prevents spam.
“Voted for by the people of the tech community, the Noonies by Hackernoon are a great way to recognize the very best in the tech industry.” said Suman Das, Sr. Director of Brand Operations, .Tech Domains. He further added, “Their goal perfectly aligns with our own of empowering the tech community to build the future, and we’re thrilled to be associated with them for the 3rd year running”
"It is with great pleasure that BingX is partnering HackerNoon for #Noonies 2022. BingX is the leading crypto social trading exchange, and we're honored to sponsor the #Noonies' Web3 Award this year," the BingX team said in a statement.
