New TULIP Mania Token Game - 250 Free TULIPs Contest 3 [CONTEST CLOSED]steemCreated with Sketch.

in game •  2 months ago  (edited)

Firstly, thanks to the people who have agreed to promote this new TULIP game; I think we have enough now.

Today is the 3rd contest to win some free TULIPs and set you up to make some money in the trading game starting next week.

Below is a simple question; just give the answer in a comment.

One of the skills in trading is the ability to turn a profit even though nothing particularly exciting appears to be happening. Many of the tokens on Steem Engine are thinly traded and will often display a broad spread between the buy and sell orders. What may appear as an anomaly, or annoyance, to the casual token-holder is a chasm of opportunities to the canny trader. By building a bridge across such a gap, a trader can give the illusion of a market working in harmony with the alleged principles of supply and demand. And yet, it is an illusion. Buyer, and seller, beware.

Except, there is no illusion, no magic or sleight of hand; there is information, where to find it and what to do with it. The spectator is always at a disadvantage; become the explorer.

More details in the coming days. Scheduled start is Thursday 8 August but this remains provisional.

OK, time for the contest question.

TULIP Contest Question 3

Extraordinary Popular Delusions and the Madness of Crowds, by Charles MacKay. Now McKay was an interesting person, not only an author and journalist but a poet and songwriter. He was not well thought of by his peers as he tended to jump to odd conclusions

LOL, I know someone else like that.
20 TULIPs to you!

conclusions that are not popular arent always untrue, look at Copernicus and Galileo.

Great, 20 TULIPs won!

"Extraordinary Popular Delusions and the Madness of Crowds" by Charles Mackay.
Interestingly, his analysis seems flawed. Ah history is fun.

Yes, I think we're back to the paying attention economy ;-)
Turning futures into options sounds like a scam, but it's OK when gov does it.
