What is BitBoost (BBT)?

BitBoost has developed the Block, a marketplace for e-commerce built over the Ethereum blockchain, and currently in beta testing. The Block brings e-commerce to the blockchain, making transactions cheaper, fully private and trustworthy thanks to smart contracts, unleashing both sellers and buyers from the control of middlemen. The Block includes all the features needed for e-commerce, including listing, filtering, searching, payments, escrowing, and arbitration, and BitBoost is working in more advanced features to be released next year. The Block is expected to be deployed in the Ethereum network the 2Q of 2018.

Rules & Submission

  • Write an article about how BitBoost (BBT) will change the e-commerce field. Think of all the businesses that currently do not have access to the cryptocurrency space. How will having an easy way to access the tools necessary to set up an online shop change the game for people? Do you sell products that could benefit from having a strong e-commerce presence? Think of use-cases of how an existing business could implement BitBoost to help widen their horizon. As always, be creative!

  • The article must be 200 to 600 words in length.

  • To submit please do the following:

  1. Add the word "bitboost2017" (without the quotes) at the very end of your article.
  2. Link this post in your submission.
  3. Post the link to your article as a reply to this post.
  4. Resteem this contest post.

How the winners are decided

The submissions will be passed along to the team at BitBoost (BBT), and they will decide the best articles.

Here's My Entry


upvoted / linked / resteemed

You have some kind of alert for this contest or what? I always see you first. (Gonna start working on mine soon). xD haha

@michellerhey, if you follow the contest bot you will get a memo in your wallet with a .001 deposit to your wallet. There will be a link to the contest in the memo. If you are accessing your wallet on a mobile device you may need to rotate your screen horizontally to see the details of the memo text. Vertical view only says who I got a deposit from on my device. Hope this helps you get the message faster, but I doubt it will help you beat the @outerground beast of a writing machine. Cheers!

I am following originalworks, but I wasn't aware of the contest bot. I'll follow that one too. Thanks. : D

I must be psychic. or perhaps I'm just in the right time zone ! @michellerhey.. I'm waiting to see your entry this week... & @mitnebs actually I did sign up to follow @contestbot.. i thought everyone did !

Yeah, @outerground, the first couple of weeks I couldn't figure out how the heck you were able to post an entry so quickly. I almost missed this weeks entry, but just happened to turn my phone horizontal, and the memos showed their complete messages, and Voila!, there it was! Cheers!

I missed the last contest unfortunately. Now I've got updates though so I should be good. :D

even weirder. my time zone is GMT and about 9pm on a friday evening I would logon and the first thing I'd see is the competition announcement. It was kind of a fluke, then I was introduced to contestbot and it still seems like whatever time the contest is announced is about the same time as I get online.

It must be your destiny, @outerground! You can't escape this weekly contest!

I do write fast too

That's an understatement, @outerground! You are a warp-speed Jedi of writing!

well, I do have a liquid cooled keyboard and JED is my other name ;) I have been known as Yoda in the past :!

That's just plain eerie, @outerground! 🤣

Here is my entry, it is aimed at the Hispanic community.


Great competition .well done.

Did I make my post in time for the 2 SBD bonus?

Here's my entry to the contest. Good luck to all the entrants! Lots of participation this week! I'm looking forward to reading your entries. Cheers!

Hi @originalworks. I haven't receive any confirmation that my work has been accepted for the contest.

Thx in advance.

hi @originalworks I haven't receive any confirmation of my entry which was posted and linked 9 hours ago.

This is the link again.

@perennial, you need to delete the space between the t and 2 on the bot call tag at the bottom of your article. It must say "bitboost2017" not "bitboost 2017" Maybe no capital letters either (not sure about that) Cheers!

Tqvm @mitneb. Appreciate it.

No problem, @perennial! I just happened to spot your repeated posts, and saw that @unprovoked had not replied yet, so I checked your bot call tag as a likely source of the problem. I didn't have time to read your article yet, but I plan to. Cheers!

Yeah after your prompt i corrrected it and got a confirmation. Thx.
