All challenges containing ‘Living Progress’ in the challenge title are eligible. The prize pool will start at $1,000 for each track and will increase by $350 for each Living Progress challenge posted and $100 for each First2Finish (F2F) or Bug Hunt in the above timeframe. We anticipate over 70 challenges with estimated challenge pool prize totaling $30,000.
NOTE: There will be a second round for the Living Progress Challenge project beginning later this year. We plan on running a second Blitz for that round with about 50 to 60 challenges.
Blitz Challenge Breakdown
Points = Dollars won. For example, if you win $1,000 on an eligible challenge, that will equate to 1,000 points towards this challenge (Note: This does not include other prizes beyond the set prizes in each challenge). The more challenges we launch, the larger the Living Progress Challenge Blitz Prize Pool will grow.

Current Blitz Bonus Prize Pools:
If there is a tie for a position among the top 3 finishers, the tie will be resolved in the following manner (in order):
- The competitor who has the most higher-placed submissions throughout the Blitz.
- If a tie still remains, then the tied competitors will share equally the prize money at hand.
The Living Progress Challenge Blitz prize money will be paid within 30 days of the completion of the series and announcing the winners.
