I'm confused about the different tracks

Looking at the first prize winner (Refound) in the Web2 to Web3 track, I feel like I have submitted my project to the wrong track...

I submitted my project NearPress (https://devpost.com/software/nearpress) to the Native track, because it is a completely new project that I built during this hackathon. However, the Refound project also seems very native/web3-ish to me and it is also a decentralized news publishing platform like mine. Yet they were allowed to compete in the Web2 to Web3 track, where there is much less competition. Don't get me wrong, I feel like they deserved their prize, but could someone please explain the tracks? Was my project in the wrong track?

I think the tracks shouldn't have any overlap at all, or when that is not possible there simply shouldn't be separate tracks at all, because now it feels like it makes the competition less fair than it could have been.

Anyways, congrats everyone who won! I hope I will have more luck next time. :)

    There is generalized discontent among the participants, there is a discussion on discord about this. Let's hope the managers can clarify what's happening

    I agree with this ^ we remade the near careers job board but did it in a web3 way. I feel like we could have been web2 to 3 under these loose rules.
