Thank you for your support during the past days! There are still a few hours left to vote, and the results will be announced on March 2nd. Until then, this is a brief overview of our strategic approach in the pursuit of the Community Choice award in the #Hedera21 hackathon. Our entire project also has at its core a well formulated strategic growth plan which will allow us to build a robust technological platform.

February 12th was the deadline for project submissions. Voting wouldn’t start for another 3 days-- February 15th. Our team got friends and families to like and comment on our submitted project in order to build interest ahead of the official voting period.

February 16th: All people who liked the project voted. Friends shared the project. The Youth Branch of the Society of Power Engineers in Romania mobilized in support. Special thanks to the president Mircea Bitoiu.

February 17th: The NGOs in the Jiu Valley showed their support. Special thanks to Mihai Danciu and Adina Vintan. We have told the Hedera Hashgraph HBAR community about our project, both on the main international telegram chats and on our twitter page https://twitter.com/tokabank

February 18th: The employees of PwC Romania decided to get involved and significantly increase our chances of success. Many thanks to all employees and the entire leadership of the company because they CARED.

February 19th: Our project had media coverage in the Jiu Valley, although these were some particularly difficult days for the local society. The team was interviewed by the Cronica Văii Jiului newspaper and by the Hunedoara 365 TV station. Thank you Jiu Valley people and thank you Diana Mitrache for making it possible.

February 20th: We appreciate the help of Professor Diana Robescu, Dean of Faculty of Power Engineering from the Politehnica University of Bucharest. She raised awareness about Toka Bank among students and professors and increased our chances to succeed.

February 21st: It is much appreciated the support received from the students’ part of the Students Association of the Faculty of Power Engineering. Our thanks go to them and their president Adrian Dima.

February 22nd: On the last day of voting, word about our project got to Professor Shahrazad Hadad from the Faculty of Business Administration of Teaching in Foreign Languages, part of the Academy of Economic Studies in Bucharest. As one of the most appreciated professors at the University, her public support convinced a large number of students and professors to vote for us. The Toka Bank team thanks them all.

We don’t know if we have enough votes to win the Community Choice award, but we now know how much the society supports our initiative. We’ve done our best to obtain financing at this stage and we will do our best to build a reliable platform, regardless of the result in this hackathon. Thank you all!
