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

WhaleShares Logo Contest: Round #3 Begins!




Art from Winners of the WhaleShares Contest 3/3



Whaleshares Logo Contest #3

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 have brought me to a place where I have wonderful news for the community!

Finally, after much blood, sweat and tears whaleshares is functional (special thanks to @jphenderson, @elmato, @reggaemuffin)!

And before we move forward, I want to give a special thanks to everyone who made us the fastest growing community in Steemit!


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 UP and earn the equivalence of 30+% of 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?

Thank you!

·

very beautiful logo :)

·

This is perfect, everything else is too much. In my opinion...

Have nice day! =)

·

very nice mix of colors :)

·

very nice :) both i mean

Hi everyone :D
I´m super excited, this is my first contest and i´m so happy and grateful for this initiative.
So many excellent logos already, this will be almost impossible :P but participation and interaction is the most important ;)
Best wishes to all of us.
And this is my entry, I opted for a simple look with all the components integrated in the same object.
Namaste ;)

Yes, there are some absolutely amazing designs here. But your design has my vote @aleister

I love how you have integrated all elements. The graded colour and simplification of design are so pleasing to the eye. Love the shadow ~ Light beaming up. And the eye ~ Almost a yin/yang symbol. Good luck.🐋🍀🐋

·
·

Oh thank you so much for your vote, i´m glad you like it :D

·
·
·

Truly hope I'm not the only one ~ Appears I'm not.

The only thing I might nudge, just ever so slightly to the right, is the bitshare icon. So that the eye would not be quite so central. Closer to the golden mean position. 🐋🍀🐋

·

Wow, this is indeed a beautiful and intelligent logo. Encompassing bitshares, whaleshares and steem in one pic. Amazing!

·
·

Thanks for your kind words @Siddartha :D

I wanted to play with "share" and "whale" meanings, so my whale is literally giving some bitshares to everyone :)

·

such a clean and sweet logo <"..">

·
·

Thanks so much, cherie! :)

·

Hey @keepdoodling I thought you had won this challenge. I thought it was after the post was over 7th day, who ever was 1st (you), 2nd (@mathiasian) and 3rd me (@jsant72) win. I was wrong. Its a 1 week plus 1 day after the post and people that posted a couple days later still moving up while ours stopped. @officialfuzzy The challenge is not over until the last logo stops curating?

·
·

Hehe, dramatic turn of events! The big guys overtook us in the last minute ) Well, that's life :)
But our logos are still pretty good. And we got some rewards, right :)

·

Nice, you have implemented the concept of whaleshares very well!

·
·

Thank you! :)

·

Cute whale!

·
·
·
·
·

Is this competition still open? If yes, for how long its open?

·
·
·
·

Till the end of the week I guess. You still have plenty of time.

Whale_Share_final

Here is my take on what the WhaleShare logo should look like. Thanks for the chance. As you can see, I chose to go with a modern uncluttered design with crisp clean lines, and complementary bright colors.

I thought it was important to have the whale smiling since this is all supposed to be an exiting, and fun experience.

FYI, I designed this logo on Photoshop then exported to illustrator and made the final draft. I have vector files of each element in the design. They were all made from scratch. If you want the vector files, I'd be happy to give them to you as well. Hope you guys like it.

Wow, definitely the best so far.

Looks ok.

·
·

Its the only one here that looks like a professionally made logo.

I got tired of posting normal logos. This is my new Whaleshares logo.
UpVote

·

Following you. Looks good, but are you sure you want the whale to look as if it's going to bite my head off? Please don't feel insulted, I am currently recharging.

·
·

@lucky.digger I am not looking to be number one logo but help me out be 3rd or 2nd. Your Upvote is very welcome. Thanks

·
·
·

How can I help you buddy?

·
·
·
·

Help me out on this one upvote from you. I will get your back one day.

·
·

Not insulted at all. I thought, they have 2 other winner from the previous challenges, so they need one logo that says "We are Strong, so don't mess with us!". Happy Steeming

WhaleShares-Logo.gif
Can you spot the steemit logo and bitshares logo? I love how this one turned out, I infused both logos into my design, used elements that represented each company and put them into this logo. I love to keep it 100% original and not just SLAPPING 3 logos on top of each other like most logo's I have been seeing around!

·

Thanks to everyone that UPVOTES!

·

Remember : "Entries must include the Bitshares and Steem logos"

·
·

Yup all logos are incorporated steemit logo at bottom and bitshare logo is the inner ring going around! I like to be creative with my work, Not just slapping 3 logo's on top of each other like most here! lol!

·
·
·

This is nice! All logos intact

·
·

Oh thank you so much ! the round 2 was not "LOGO" enough ..so i made it less colorful .

This took me longer than I would like to admit

New round, new Chances.

1000x1000

and with text (though I prefer without and the brief is not exactly clear on it needing text)

100x100

·

Ok nice one.

·
·

Thanks.

Could it be any better?

We tried to have completely different style than those two previous winners. You can see the other version on my blog. We didn't post it here as you can join only with one logo and only this logo was made in vector. :)

Thanks!

·

this is pretty cool eirik!

whaleshares.png

Hope you guys like it!!!

·

Nice! One of the best in my opinion. I really like the font and the steemit logo on the whale. That was genious!

·
·

Thanks for the nice words!

·

OK, nice one!

·
·

Thanks for your vote!

·
·
·

Here is my design: Any resemblance to existing persons, and characters is purely coincidental.

Please try to NOT think on a Picasso stylization of some sort of grown up monopoly with mustache rebel millionaire share giver Bart.

Because that would be like our more aware and conscious new generations are willing to implement better ways to extra self-education, less selfish few riches schemes and much better ways to care for the ones in need, including all of us either good or bad ignorants. (Apologize for my bad English, it is my second language)

Thank you for your vote!

Here's my logo for you, I wanted to design a logo that feel trustworthy and professional but yet playful, in this design you get all 3 elements without looking like 3 logotypes stacked on each other (Swedish design he he)... enjoy! whaleshares 1000x1000px.png

·

thank you for votes!

Is the text necessary?

Mister... you stole that cartoonish whale from internet.

Never claimed I didn't

Amazing logos made by everyone! Here is My Entry:

·

Siddartha you're the bomb ;)

·
·

Hehe, thanks!

·

Awesome logo! :) Love everything about it. This should be a winner :)

PS: oh, did you got it from here? - https://answersingenesis.org/vbs/2016/
I thought it was your creation...

·
·

You are right, I got the whale from that site. I should have mentioned the source already, but it seems it skipped out of my mind. But it fits perfectly, doesn't it!

·

i love the little minnow in there...lol

nice touch :)

·
·

Thanks!

I missed the first two rounds of the contest because I just signed up last week, so here is my only entry. I noticed the style is quite different to most of the other entries, but I hope you like it anyway

WhaleShares_LogoCompetition_WeAreFragmented3.png

·

Love the style :)

·
·

Aw, thank you! Your whale is one of my favourites this round, he is so cute!

·

Wonderful!!!

With my experience the logos of brands tend to be untouchable for copyright reasons, and because their purpose is to have the same effect and retention in our minds, and be easily recognized, so by thinking on this here is my proposal:

From minnows to whales grownup, jumping out of the water and spreading the fortune no matter your kind or size, just the willing to be part of the ecosystem.

whalesharestop.png

·

Wow this is one of my favourites. I am just a minnow, one day i will reach dolphin

·
·

Thanks for your comments!! :)

Hey, I've finally wrapped up another design that's a little bit more simplistic:

I Hope you guys enjoy!


Design note: I was so fed up with seeing only the same whales over and over again so I chose some Orcas and made them even more friendly as they are in real ^_^. It almost seems like they are cuddling with the Bitshares Logo... I also like how the shimmering of the whales turned out. Almost seems like they're made of some marble like material. Whalecuddles for everyone! :)

Bity the whale swimming in a sea of steem.

·

ah very nice logo , sweet energy :) i love it

image
I came late to the party😑

Here's my entry. I like to think that 2 whales are necessary in the logo because Whaleshares is all about many whales sharing. Hope you like it.

whalesharelogo2.png

·

very cool idea and well presented :) i like it a lot

·

I really like the colors on this one! Haven't thought of making the bitshares logo into a sun.
Maybe you could make the whale part stand a bit more out.
Quite creative, good job!
Also: Have my upvote :)

Our Community .. Our Whale :)

I would like to present to you the CLEAR winner!

Wow this is such an awesome idea - thanks for organizing this contest @officialfuzzy! I haven't dabbled in any Whaleshares yet but I would really like to try my luck at designing a nifty little Whaleshares logo. The prizes for this round look very appealing....the possibilities appear endless with 1000 whaleshares lol.

240K per year without powering down?! WOWWW!!

Good luck everyone creating.

Goodluck to all! Amazing work :)
