BeyondBitcoin Bounties -- Whaleshares "Meta-Token" Logo Contest! (Round 2/3) [1000's of Steem in Prizes!]

WhaleShares Logo Contest: Round #2 Begins!




Art from Winners of the WhaleShares Contest 1/3



Whaleshares Logo Contest #2

I am a miniwhale but I have always felt it important to use the funds I earn to give back to an ecosystem so value can continue to grow. So with this said, I am proud to announce that everyone's trust and upvotes in me has brought me to a place where I have wonderful news for the community!
Finally, after much blood, sweat and tears whaleshares is functional!


What is WhaleShares?

Whaleshares is the design of @officialfuzzy to incorporate the first meta-token backed fully by Steempower (SP) and give users the ability to summon a whale to upvote their post by simply sending Whaleshares to the designated account(s). Think of it like DKP for Steem!


Why WhaleShares?

WhaleShares was meant to reduce friction and help end the rule of "upvote bots" on steemit and other static methods that completely take human interaction out of the equation. @officialfuzzy and the Beyond Bitcoin team believe in whales being benevolent sharers of their SP via the creation of an economic tool that promotes powering up and dissincentivizes powering down---THIS MAKES STEEM GO UP IN DEMAND AND PRICE!

We believe the Upvotes can be the basis for an informal economy based on the trust of a community and Beyond Bitcoin, as the community that inspired Steem's very creation, means to use this tool to empower the evolution of the community we all have grown to love. According to my calculations, my whaleshares token can pay out approximately 240k per year WITHOUT me powering down!


Why is WhaleShares important to Steem?

When you give the whales in the community an incentive to stop powering down and instead to leverage a Whale Token to build within our ecosystem, the possibilities for value creation are literally endless! Why power down to build value with your stake in Steem when you can Power it UP and earn the equivalence of 60% your SP value each year to give as rewards to prolific Content Creators and Community Leaders?

With this technology, whales will begin showing the true power of investing their hard earned wealth into the Steem Platform!


An Overview of the Contest..

We have accomplished a great deal with the resources earned from the last year of hangouts. Where once there was no funding to build, it turns out that our consistent unpaid efforts paid off with the creation of Steem and the subsequent showering of upvotes and support from a community we helped build. However, a quick visit to whaleshares.net will show that we still have lots of work to do beautifying our site. With that in mind, we thought what better way to introduce our new service than contests? Contests create a means of ensuring high quality content is rewarded with WhalePower!


So, here's the skinny... We need a logo.

We could make one ourselves as at least 2/3 of the whaleshares team has graphic design skills but we thought we'd rather leave it up to you, the steem community, to design our logo and compete for some vote tokens (aka whaleshares). Contest will be in three rounds and each user can submit one entry per round. We will decide the winner from each round who will then move on to the final round where the steem community can vote on their favorite entry. Guidelines for entries are as follows:

Entries must be 1000 px x 1000 px square
Entries must be in .png format with a clear background
Entries must include the Bitshares and Steem logos
Entries must include a whale

Prizes for the 3 preliminary rounds are:

First prize: 1000 whaleshares
Second prize: 500 whaleshares
Third prize: 250 whaleshares

Prizes for the final round are:

First prize: 2000 whaleshares
Second prize: 1000 whaleshares
Third prize: 500 whaleshares

To enter, upvote and resteem this post and post your entry in the comments. Each user can submit one entry per round. The winner for each round will be chosen one week after initial post. Hope to see you there and happy Steeming!


Do you have what it takes to beat Last Contest's Winner in the Final Round?

Hi, Style is really nice but Entries must include the Bitshares and Steem logos.

·

very nice!

Let's give this a go...

WhalleSharesLogo.png

·

Wow...that is sexy...

·
·

Thanks! This is my first time using Steemit. Heard about all this from the Beyond Bitcoin Podcast. Still learning the ropes but this site is an incredible concept. Glad to be able to throw my hat in the ring!

·

mmm mmm mmm!

I heard you like gifs?

( My png entry is coming in some days, hope you enjoy in the meantime :) )

·

Not gonna lie. Thats pretty frigging epic.

·
·

Thank you! Because you liked it that much I tweaked it a bit(added some lighting and burnt the steemit logo into the metal) and made an updated version:

I think I'll also stick with this design for the logo, sadly it has to be png and won't be moving. :D

·
·
·

make the metal part bigger so the water ripple doesn't show at the bottom.

·
·
·
·

Thank you for your suggestion! I also noticed that, but since this is just a basic animated version of what I wanted to create as a png for this contest I don't want to focus on that too much. I also kind of disliked the color/texture of the coin itself and changed it in the meantime.

Maybe if enough people ask for it, I'll make a gif out of the updated version of that logo.
We'll see that, when I have created a post about that issue.

Anyway, have a nice day and thank you so much for your feedback!

I just gave you an upvote, I hope it helps!

·
·
·

Thank you, I appreciate it so much!

Finally I'm sort of happy with my logo. I hope you guys enjoy:

·

this one was another of my favorites. if it was right for the site i would have chosen it. but i am sure we can use it somewhere :)

·
·

Thank you so much for your kind words! I'd really love to see that happening.
Please tell me when you've used it somewhere. I'd love to take a look at it, once it's in place.
Maybe it's suitable for displaying a whaleshare as Icon when handling it?

Also thank you for those big upvotes, that really made up for not getting into top 3 :).
And I'll also try to participate in round 3. We'll see if I can scramble up something that suits the site a bit better.

·
·

I've adjusted it a bit to also display a whales name:

Maybe you can find a use for it a bit easier now.

·

This is fantastic!
I'm looking for a logo for a steemit exclusive video series I'm starting.
Any chance you might be available?

·
·

Thanks a lot mate!

Oh, my bad! I just realize that I didn't follow the guidelines. Here it goes again with the right format!

·
·
·
·
·

·
·
·
·
·
·

Completely right, that was my mistake because of not paying attention to the guidelines! Next time I will do better ;)

I am using this when talking about WhaleShares sometimes so why not put it also in there! :)

not your regular flat design logo, huh? ;) but decided to submit it anyway, don't think I have much chances to win but it was fun to make it anyway :)

·

I'm a fan, good job

·
·

thanks :D

Damnn these are some great entries! Wish all of you the luck, and many thanks to Fuzzy and his crew for taking initiative with this!

·

This is some dope shit pablo, hola amigos!

·

That looks great!!!!!

·

Looks really good!!

·

they're all really cool. There's some real talent on here.

·

How do you upload a pic?

·

I'm bad when it comes to creating art. But here is mine. An 8bit inspired whale logo (320x240)

·

I love it :)

·

not saying I dislike your logo, cause I actually do like it, but you might want to rethink the placement/use of the steemit logo. The current use/placement suggest the whale is in dire need of a bath aka Smells horribly. Just saying.

·
·

i think i like it even better now :D

·
·
·

I suppose he's crying then (the b/drop beneath his eye) for smelling bad 😂

I am not a graphic artist by any means, but I thought I'd enter for fun. I do pixel-art stuff every once in a while so I thought I'd try my hand at this. It looks a bit cartoony, I don't expect you to use it lol. But here's my entry anyway.

Here is one without text

Here is it with text

Thats an interesting logo. Atari style? ;)

Hope you like it @officialfuzzy

whaleshares 1000x1000px.png

Is there a download for the Bitshare and Steem logos? How can I get them to incorporate into my logo design?

·

type "bitshares logo" &"steem logos" on google, you'll def see something.

·
·

even better, add eps or svg in the seatch and you'll probably find a vector format, meaning infinitely scalable

Sorry but my internet went down. It's what I managed

Just so i understand, anyone can enter and you don't have to have participated in round one? (to be more clear you can only enter in 1 single round of 3)

·

You are able tonenter into every round. You can even use a your past logo if your last one didnt win :)

But i personally hope people who can will make new ones even if they wish to post their last one.

·
·

ooh that's nice. I got a couple of ideas. So I can use one this round and another next round. Thanks.

Inpatience to see more great entryes !

I think i'm gonna join again :)

Best of luck everyone - Round 1 was incredible... hope Round 2 raises the bar even further!

Sit back and Watch some CoOL designs. I love them all :)

I'm looking forward to all the creative artists out there that will come up with all sorts of great logo's!

The last winners logo will be hard to beat. I like it!

Wow this is interesting! Awesome for #artist there to show there creativity hehe ;-)

Let's talk about how awesome bitshares is performing and good luck with the logo.

I attended the. Beyond bitcoin podcast on mumble last time and there were bounties for attending. I haven't received anything yet.

·

no we are holding off on bounties for attendance because it is not the best way. I am working on things though to make it so you can earn more.

AND i will still be taking attendance :)

Invitation for discord is close, can u send a new pls ?

·

https://discord.gg/Y7S77q :)

See you there!

You deserve it, after what you did before

·

I just take a little longer term view than it seems many do... but thanks for noticing ;)

·
·

I Guarantee you the participants in this competition get more followers than you if you are not here to participate.

Just think about that for a moment when thinking how you use your energy ;)

·
·

Thats one way to see it. Not 100% sure what I hope to achieve here on Steemit to be honest, but I'm having fun anyways :)

·
·
·

Having fun is a great start...
;)
