whaleshares.jpg

CONTEST CLOSED!!!!

See @gktown's announcement HERE



The awesome @gktown was kind enough to send me some whaleshares the other day in a competition I entered and won. In my entry to the competition I vowed to use them on my fellow minnows. Once I learned how to use them I have spent whaleshares on a couple of minnows' posts to raise their value. I have since spoken with @gktown and we formulated this idea for a contest for you to win my remaining shares plus extras he, along with @akrid, have been kind enough to offer.

All you have to do is:

  • resteem this post
  • reply in the comments below with a link to a post on which you would spend whaleshares
  • get your friends and followers to vote on your reply

There will be 3 winners, determined by the number of upvotes they get here in the replies. DO NOT USE BOT VOTES - you WILL be disqualified!

Each of the 3 winners will have a choice of prize: you can win a vote worth 5 whaleshares on your submitted post or you can opt to receive 8 whaleshares sent to your bitshares/openledger account to do with as you wish (when you spend a whaleshare there is fee of 1 whaleshare taken for the transaction if you don't have any bitshares, otherwise it's a fee of about .22bts).

CONTEST CLOSED!!!!

See @gktown's announcement HERE


Be sure to only submit posts that are due to be paid out beyond 3 days from now.



The post with the overall highest votes will have an addition extra 5 whaleshares vote spent on their submitted post.

To learn more about Whaleshares take a look join the Whaleshares Discord channel here: https://discord.gg/NTKXJhK

Keep an eye out for some great tutorials on how to use Whaleshares and see the link below for a chance to win $800 worth of Beyondbits. https://steemit.com/steemgigs/@steemgigs/steemgig-the-best-how-to-use-whaleshares-tutorial-wins-a-potential-500-beyondbits-i-e-almost-usd800

BREAKING NEWS! Prize fund has increased!

New details below!

CONTEST CLOSED!!!!




Thanks to the awesome generosity of @JPhenderson and @patelincho all of the prizes have now increased! Originally we were offering 8 whaleshares spent by us to upvote your post or you could instead opt for a larger prize to be sent to your bitshares/openledger account to do with as you wish. As the prize pool has increased we have decided to make it simpler by sending 3 x 23 whaleshares to your bitshares/openledger account to do with as you wish.

In summary each of the 3 winners will receive 23 whaleshares sent to their bitshares/openledger account and the winner with the most votes will receive an additional 15 whaleshares, totalling 38 whaleshares.

Thank you @JPhenderson

Thanks a lot for the giveaway, as a minnow these whaleshares means a lot to me.

And one question what's the deadline? I didn't get "beyond 3 days from now" thing. Thanks.

·

Originally we were going to use whaleshares on your post in 3 days, so it could not be beyond the 7 days payout. Due to not increased prize fund it has changed. The winners will now get whaleshares in their bitshares/openledger account to spend as they wish

Top man

This post is about a 17 year old Sunday Roland Ejiro, a 300level student of the Department of English and Literary Studies, Delta State University, Abraka (Delsu). He is suffering from a chronic kidney disease secondary to chronic glomerulonepphritis.

What is required for Roland is a kidney transplant and the estimated amount needed is twelve Million Naira (12000000).
I so wish the whaleshare will help the post get to reach a lot of persons probably some generous fellow that will meet his financial needs and hopefully take him to a better hospital with better facilities and great care.

Update the post i will donate 15 whaleshares to the pool :) And thank you for update and undarstanding :)

thank you

Pm me in discord , i have same name your BTS addres :)

Replied. Thank you again

I've won enough whaleshares that I'll let the other minnows get these but happy to see how giving the community is. Awesome thing you are all doing with these whaleshares!

·

@hashbrown very nice and thoughtful of you

I know this post will seem selfish, but I'm a believer in the power of personal connection. I've been working to create a meetup in Denver and would really love some added exposure (and $$) to help make the event a success. Also, I've agreed to match any donations (>$1000) so some help in winning this contest could go a long way towards creating invaluable connections for some Steemians out west.

@gmuxx... I just saw your contest.

Here is a link to one of my posts: https://steemit.com/funny/@sandzat/through-the-eyes-of-a-newcomer-an-original-story-about-steemit-part-2

This series is an attempt to record my experience with Steemit in an original way. It is partly meant to be humourous and partly meant to educate. Cheers!

How will you know bots are voting?

·

We have ways :)

·

I guess there are ways to tell

·

It is fairly easy to tell which posts are slowly gaining upvotes through asking friends vs using a curation trail.

@gktown but I haven't got any friends on Steemit. Are minnows expected to join here with a huge friend list 😇

Thanks for sharing this contest with us. I love contest and the wonderful community spirit of Steemit to share with minnow. I am looking
forward to doing the same in the future. I hope you will like my post and anyone that read this post will appreciate it and benefits from. I share some tips for having a wonderful life. We should all KISS our lives!!!

Oooo! There is a battle for the votes unfolded. Consider, that for me voted all my 208 followers. And I've already won : =)))))

Whaleshare:

Advantages:

It is a community.
100% upvote is possible.
You can get more than what you paid for.
Hot tab is possible.
Contests.
Disadvantages:

You need to use an exchange.
If you don’t know what you are doing you can also lose money.

done :-)

very good stuff and idea. Thanks.

Great Views and clicks Keep it up!

In all honesty, I don't usually tend to participate in these sort of things.. But I will, this time. - I have recently published an article about the "upvote beggars" and also proposed a solution to prevent this type of behaviour.

I would love to get as much exposure for it as possible, as I truly believe it's a decent solution. Even though it might not be the best solution.

So here it is!


And if I would recommend anyone else, I'd recommend @kayclarity. She's a great singer & writer and she truly deserves more recognition.

Thanks!

·

Thank you for introducing @kayclarity to me, she is awesome! Followed

You're welcome, she truly is. She's talented and she writes one helluva great comments on people's content too! :)

This is a really great opportunity for minnows. Thanks for such a generosity . :)
