The 1st “Newton Cup” Global Community Creativity Contest

With his numerous achievements in mechanics, math, optics, thermodynamics, astronomy, and philosophy, Isaac Newton has been called a polymath. In person, he had the aura of a boss, bringing people to their knees.

But don’t be fooled, Newton was also a 17th century “troll.”

He scolded people, resented people

Didn’t even have eyes for the Church

There were only two ways

Provoking Newton

Could have ended:

Either you died,

Or he lived.

What arrogance!

Few however know that Sir Newton was also a financier, having served as Master of the British Royal Mint. During his tenure, he invented anti-counterfeiting technology, affecting the world’s centuries-old gold standard. The Newton Project was so named to commemorate Sir Newton’s outstanding contributions.

The project gives new meaning to the Newton, the unit of force in classical mechanics – which is replaced by the NewForce (NF) in the Newton community economy as a measure of value creation.

On December 18, 2018, Newton MainNet and NewPay were simultaneously launched. The Newton genesis block wrote, “From this moment onward, Newton is not only a unit of natural force, but also a unit of digital assets.”

A quarter on, the project has achieved gratifying results. In search of “Newton people” with creativity and unlimited brains, and to commemorate such a talented and interesting individual, Newton is holding the first “Newton Cup,” welcoming global community members.

In December 2018, Newton launched MainNet and the NewPay wallet. In March 2019, NewPay 1.0, the first wallet with community governance functionality, was launched. NewMall, the first application, will go online at any time. The project has made a series of gratifying achievements, all of which wouldn’t have happened without the support of the community. The aim of this competition is for community members to be creative and show their community spirit.

The Newton team retains the right to interpret this competition. If it finds that any submission is not original, has been used on other platforms, or has been plagiarized, it may cancel its eligibility.
