Hype Week is a week-long contest where you have a chance of winning a portion of the 10,000USD prize. Hype Week starts on May 1, 2018 7PM PDT and ends May 7, 2018 at 6:59PM PDT. Season 4’s Hype Week is jointly sponsored by Epic Games' Fortnite and Refereum. There are 2 quests within Hype Week that you can participate to try to win.

One quest is to be in the top five streamers by hours watched within a 24 hour period, starting at 7PM PDT on May 1, 2018. The hours watched is calculated by the number of hours streamed of you playing Fortnite live and the number of Refereum viewers watching you live stream. You must be registered as a streamer on Refereum and a Refereum user. Only live streaming counts toward your leaderboard score.

The second  quest is to place in the top five referrers of Fortnite downloads on the Download Leaderboard. This quest lasts the whole week, and you must be a Refereum user and use your unique Refereum Fortnite download referral link so that we may track the Fortnite downloads you referred.  

Each quest has a prize pool of  $5,000 totalling 10,000 USD. Refereum members may join both quests if the above requirements are met.
