[Cyprus Cyber Security Challenge] Call for mentors

Dear Community,

The Cyprus Cyber Security Challenge Organizing Committee is seeking experienced mentors to train and support a team of hackers as they build a national team to compete in international competitions. This initiative aims to bring together top talent from across the country and provide them with the resources and guidance needed to succeed on a global stage.

As a mentor, you will be expected to provide technical support and guidance and help the team develop and refine their skills. You should have a strong background in computer science and a passion for hacking and competitive programming. You will also be responsible for helping to organize and lead training sessions and for encouraging and motivating team members to reach their full potential.

In return, you will have the opportunity to work with a talented group of individuals and contribute to the growth and development of the next generation of hackers. You will also gain exposure to the latest technologies and trends in the field and will be able to connect with other like-minded individuals in the community.

If you are interested in becoming a mentor, please send us a brief statement of your qualifications and experience. We, the Cyprus Cyber Security Challenge Organizing Committee, look forward to hearing from you and working with you to build a winning national team.

The Cyprus Cyber Security Challenge Organizing Committee.

Using Revolut Metal in Cyprus

In this entry, we will briefly describe our experience with “Revolut Metal” as a customer that resides in Cyprus. We will update this post as time passes and new data are collected.

Day 0


It was straightforward to change our plan and upgrade.

With a click, we could also convert the plan to an annual instead of a monthly one, which gave us a reasonably good discount!

In the tab “Accounts,” under the category “Net worth,” the “Savings” option, we can see some money being accumulated that is marked as “Metal cashback.”

The new metal card was immediately available to use online.


Under the “Accounts” tab, we clicked on the “Discover discounts” option, which popped up a video. At the bottom of the video, there was a button labeled “View my Rewards” we clicked on it, but nothing showed up. We could not find a page with rewards available for people residing in Cyprus.

Day 11

The metal card arrived at our door in a black envelope!

Day 12

The maximum cap for Revolut Metal Cashback is 13.99 euros per month.

Day 20

Revolut credit cards cannot be used with the Bank of Cyprus wallet application, nor can they be used with Google Pay for people that reside in Cyprus, as Google Pay is not available to Cypriot citizens.

Day 53

The maximum number of disposable virtual cards daily is six (6)!

Day 90

We used the travel insurance of the Metal plan, the reimbursement was not as much as we would hope, but at least it covered a large portion of our expenses.

Day 103

Our metal card information was copied, and someone tried to use it illegally. Revolut spotted it early on and froze the transactions. Then we were notified, and once we declined the transactions, they issued a new metal card with customization for free.

Day 140

Even though we got a notification that we could add a Revolut card to Google Pay, it still did not work:

Your bank doesn’t support tap to pay with your watch on your card. Contact your bank fro more info or add another card.

The error we got when trying to add the card to Google Pay

We tried to add a card while no watch was connected to the phone and still got the same error.

Day 173

Apparently, if you have multiple requests on a “Single-use virtual card” and authorize all of them before the first one is billed, you can perform multiple transactions on a single “Single-use virtual card”! We accidentally did this with two transactions on one “Single-use virtual card.”
