Referral Program
AstroCAT members can refer a new participant and get 1 $ASTR. Referral ID on the contest form can be either the XCH address or the twitter/discord/email handle you provided for the initial ASTR airdrop. Referrals will be awarded only for new entrants who are practising amateur astrophotographers. “Astrophotographer” is a very broad term, so anyone putting an effort into taking an image of the night sky is an astrophotographer. Quick random snaps of the sky using mobile phones won’t count, although will be admissible as a contest entry.
