How can you be a part of it?

You need a ticket. Tickets are neither free of charge, nor can they be bought for money. Only for makercoins. In other words: The only way to get a hold of a ticket to lote4 is to build it in collaboration with others.

You take on tasks, every time you complete a task you are compensated in Makercoins. Most tasks are done online before the event. When you have enough makercoins, you can buy a ticket to LOTE4. Or other things in the Makerfox shop :slight_smile:

Getting started is easy:

1. Join a team. We set up a makerfox account for you when you do. [//Each team has a weekly online hangout where you can meet the others, more info on the tean group page]

  1. Claim a task and get it done.  You claim a task by assigning it to yourself. Each claimed task is entered into your Makerfox account as an offer. worth a number of makercoins, [//We need to set up a group for each team and add a URL to it from the task page!]

  2. Tell us when you have completed it.  Leave a comment on the task page telling us around how long it took you. When the task is verified as done, your makerfox account is credited with the right  number of makercoins for that task.

When you have x no Makercoins you can trade them in for a lote4 ticket. Or anything else available in the shop!

How to get a Makerfox account? We automagically set one up for you when you join a team.
